The Lyrics

With Mandela's death, there is question of his legacy in RSA. Apartheid ended, but despite Mandela's vision of true equality and democracy for S Africa's Blacks, that vision is not realized. The ANC remains as bad as most African nations- filled with corruption and incompetence and violence. Although there is a small, struggling Black middle-class in RSA, the majority of Blacks don't live much better after all this time. Mandela got his place in history, but the Black population still feels cheated. There is still the minority rich and affluent Whites and the crowds of poor working towards a better tomorrow. Police brutality remains very high despite removal of the White regime and for me personally (who admires Mandela for his dream), I am disappointed that RSA gave up its 6+1 nuclear weapons... which was one achievement that should not have been surrendered to world opinion.
Blacks there still waiting
for equality to come
ANC procrastinating:
liberating tribal mobs

Mandela’s vision urgency
Benefits to share,
Most of it has not come true
Black middle-class is in despair…

They live for his lost cause, lost cause, lost cause
They live for his lost cause-flaws
live for his lost cause flaws
Live for equality and democracy
His lost cause, lost cause, lost cause

ANC still run by thugs
(shoddy, corrupt, louts)
Deals don’t hold up, the things get rough
(with the large crowds)

ANC still run by thugs
(shoddy, corrupt, louts)
Deals don’t hold up, then things get rough
(with the large crowds)

With the large crowds
(deals don’t hold up, then things get rough)
LOST CAUSE!!!
LOST CAUSE!!!

His ideals work in theory,
but ANC is weak
Don‘t deliver, they act brutal,
fights with police in the streets

Apartheid ended-good,
But Blacks suffer inequality
Then there are tribal showdowns,
That delay true democracy

They live for his lost cause, lost cause, lost cause
They live for his lost cause-flaws
live for his lost cause flaws
Live for equality and democracy
His lost cause, lost cause, lost cause

ANC still run by thugs
(shoddy, corrupt, louts)
Deals don’t hold up, the things get rough
(with the large crowds)

ANC still run by thugs
(shoddy, corrupt, louts)
Deals don’t hold up, then things get rough
(with the large crowds)

With the large crowds
(deals don’t hold up, then things get rough)
LOST CAUSE!!!
LOST CAUSE!!!

Blows!
Corrupt!
Blows!
Want much-now!
Blows!

[Blood spills, anger grows!]

They live for his lost cause, lost cause, lost cause
They live for his lost cause-flaws
live for his lost cause flaws
Live for equality and democracy
His lost cause, lost cause, lost cause

ANC still run by thugs
(shoddy, corrupt, louts)
Deals don’t hold up, the things get rough
(with the large crowds)

ANC still run by thugs
(shoddy, corrupt, louts)
Deals don’t hold up, then things get rough
(with the large crowds)

With the large crowds
(deals don‘t hold up, then things get rough)

With the large crowds!

With the large crowds
(deals don‘t hold up, then things get rough)

LOST CAUSE!!!

The legacy of Nelson Mandela is slow motion white genocide and the ruin of a once great country. However, he didn’t kill all his opponents. Implicit in the rejoicing of the Main Stream Media at his legacy is the idea that South African whites deserve to be murdered, but Mandela magnanimously refrained. This should provide a useful lesson for Western whites who are being reduced to minorities in their own historic homelands.

In “post-Apartheid” South Africa, all one has to do to be a civil rights hero is not be too enthusiastic in calling for the murder of whites. If one does kill them, the media won’t praise you… but they won’t condemn you either.

What no one else will say is: RIP to the Boer farmers being murdered every day, to the Afrikaners attacked in the streets and finally, rest in peace, the dream of a First World South Africa.

I admire the Boer tenacity and skill with the land and the achievements made with the White majority; however, they used Black slave labor to mine uranium, gold, diamonds, and other riches with Blacks benefitting nothing from the cities that arose. Apartheid cancels out any White murder and RSA remains a strong military on the African Continent with high tech weaponry. I cannot speak for either side in the current struggle, but violence seems to go both ways. The White minority still enjoys all the benefits while the emerging Black middle-class struggles against the Whites and tribal S Africans bound to tradition. They' ll have to determine their own future. I tried to present a balanced parody but some people will never be satisfied one way or another. The Colonial Overlords paid the price for their murders and injustice either by war with Germany twice that cost them their former colonies or from internal rebellion and struggle for change. RSA is still the most powerful nation in the South and has huge resources.
