Mandela Day Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

It was 25 years they take that man away
Now the freedom moves in closer every day
Wipe the tears down from your saddened eyes
They say Mandela's free, so step outside

Oh, Mandela day, ooh, Mandela's free

It was 25 years ago this very day
Held behind four walls all through night and day
Still the children know the story of that man
And we know what's going on right through your land 25 years ago

Na, na, na, na, na, Mandela day, oh, Mandela's free

The tears are flowing wipe them from your face
I can feel his heartbeat moving deep inside
It was 25 years they took that man away
And now the world came down say, "Nelson Mandela's free"

Oh, Mandela's free

The rising suns sets Mandela on his way
It's been 25 years around this very day
From the one outside to the ones inside we say

Oh, Mandela's free, oh, set Mandela free
Na, na, na, na, na, Mandela day
Na, na, na, na, na, Mandela's free

It's 25 years ago, what's going on
And we know what's going on
'Cause we know what's going on
