It was a smile like no other
A smile like the gentle, soothing waters of the Limpopo
It was a lioness laying in the shade of a Marula
It was a sunrise over the savannah. Oh!
Beauty, such beauty, undescribable
African princess, so lovable.
What's your name?
I want to know those African lips
I want to know those African hips
I want to know those African breasts
So beautiful, my African Princess.
I had to know her, so I approached
This Goddess so graceful, her name I just had to know.
I looked into her eyes, so brown, so deep
I was in awe, I could hardly speak
"What's your name?", I asked this idol
She smiled the waters of the Limpopo and said, "I'm Lerato"
I said, "Lerato lekatswana lewena kekaleshwela"
She said, "I don't speak those funny languages". Oh, so sad,
My African Princess, my South African Princess, my New South African Princess
