Paul Simon with Ladysmith Black Mambazo's, "Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes"
The Lyrics:
(A wa kodwa u zo-nge li-sa amhlange
(a-wa a-wa) si-bona kwenze ka kanjani
(a-wa a-wa) amanto mbazane ayeza
Shes a rich girl
She dont try to hide it
Diamonds on the soles of her shoes
This was sung by Ladysmith Black Mambazo at the opening of Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes on the Graceland album in South Africa.
