Nelson Mandela vu par Lucky Dube Convertir en PDF Version imprimable Suggérer par mail
19-10-2007

Lucky Dube assassiné lors d'un braquage à Johannesburg en Afrique du Sud avait écrit cette chanson reggae House of Exile en hommage à Nelson Mandela emprisonné (27 ans de prison dont 18 à Robben Island).

Lucky Dube

House Of Exile

Freedom fighter, standing on a mountain
In a foreign country
Trying to send a message to his people
Back in the ghetto

He had a home one time, love of a girl
But he left all that behind

Oh yes I can hear him clearly as he whispers in the air
His voice came out loud and clear
All he asked for was a prayer
And as he turns to walk away he said

(Chorus)
I'm still here in the House of Exile
For the love of the nation

Sun went down on the mountain
Birds flew back to their hiding places
Leaving him standing there like a telephone pole
In the still of the night you and I dream
Dreaming of Romeo and Juliette
All he dreams about is the freedom of the nation
When every man will be equal in the eyes of the law

As he closes his eyes for the last time he said again :

I'm still here in the House of Exile
For the love of the nation

Lucky Dube
