Lomhlaba Kawunoni (The Earth Never Gets Fat) Lomhlaba kawunoni madoda
Lomhlaba kawunoni madoda Nbokuthath' izinsizwa nezintombi Nezingane zethu nawobabamkhulu Bakuwo lomhaba. Uyadela sidumbu Ngokulal' ethuneni Umoya uyazula Indawo kayikho ezulwini. Webakithi, sihawukeleni webakithi, Sihawukeleni, sihawukeleni, sihawukeleni, Sihluphekil' umasinje-nje Okwami okwezandla. AYE ... KUMNANDI KWELAKITHI EMNAMBITHI! The Earth Never Gets Fat The earth never gets fat The earth never gets fat It keeps swallowing our men and women. Even our children and our grandparents They are all six feet underground. Blessed is the corpse That finds a resting place in the grave While the spirit wanders about Because there is no room in heaven. Brothers and sisters Sympathize with us We have suffered as it is sympathize with us. Aye ... It is well in our land of Ladysmith.
