Lyrics of Gimme Hope Jo'anna

Well Jo'anna she runs a country
She runs in Durban and the Transvaal
She makes a few of her people happy, oh
She don't care about the rest at all
She's got a system they call apartheid
It keeps a brother in a subjection
But maybe pressure will make Jo'anna see
How everybody could a live as one, oh
Gimme hope Jo'anna hope Jo'anna
Gimme hope Jo'anna 'fore the morning come
Ah gimme hope Jo'anna hope Jo'anna hope before the morning come
I hear she makes all the golden money to buy new weapons any shape of guns
While every mother in black Soweto fears the killing of another son
Sneakin' across all the neighbours' borders now and again having little fun
She doesn't care if the fun and games she play is dangerous to everyone, oh
Gimme hope Jo'anna
Gimme hope Jo'anna
Gimme hope Jo'anna 'fore the morning come
Ah gimme hope Jo'anna gimme hope Jo'anna hope before the morning come
She got supporters in high up places
Who turn their heads to the city sun
Jo'anna give them the fancy money
Oh to tempt anyone who'd come
She even knows how to swing opinion in every magazine and the journals
For every bad move that this Jo'anna makes they got a good explanation, oh
Gimme hope Jo'anna
Gimme hope Jo'anna
Gimme hope Jo'anna 'fore the morning come
Ah gimme hope Jo'anna gimme hope Jo'anna hope before the morning come
Even the preacher who works for Jesus
The archbishop who's a peaceful man
Together say that the freedom fighters will overcome the very strong
I wanna know if you're blind, Jo'anna
If you wanna hear the sound of drum
Can't you see that the tide is turning?
Oh don't make me wait 'till the morning come, oh
Oh gimme hope Jo'anna gimme hope Jo'anna
Gimme hope Jo'anna 'fore the morning come
Ah gimme hope Jo'anna gimme hope Jo'anna
Hope before the morning come hey hey
Ah gimme hope Jo'anna gimme hope Jo'anna
Gimme hope Jo'anna 'fore the morning come
Ah gimme hope Jo'anna gimme hope Jo'anna hope before the morning come
