Proudly South African - Die Melktert Kommissie
Album: Wonderwoorde


This is a great three-chord song! Easy to play. Try not to let the
guitar solos intimidate you, there are only 2 and they do repeat
throughout the song. If you get stuck, you could play the intro
chords D-D-G-D during these sections.

Here are the chords used in the song for quick reference:
         A       D       G      G-ALT
e:-------0-------2-------3-------3-------
B:-------2-------3-------3-------3-------
G:-------2-------2-------0-------4-------
D:-------2-------0-------0-------5-------
A:-------0---------------3-------5-------
E:-----------------------3-------3-------

NOTE: I only transcribed the first flute solo, and included it for
timing purposes only. I usually just whistle along during those solo
sections.

Have fun! Please let me know if there any changes/suggestions you have
to make the tab better,
Your Friendly Neighbourhood Kunuk – kunuk@rocketmail.com

======================================================================
Here is an English translation for all of those people out there like
myself, who dig the music, but are new to the language:
======================================================================

New-born babies quickly become entrepreneurs
Build cars from wires and steel
Who needs engineers
The younger generation forgets they're young
Learn crude language and sign language in the prisons
We write our dreams on old OMO boxes
Hope everything gets washed clean
Violence-free
Why, we are in control
Of our feelings
And we are happy

CHORUS:
Because we are proudly South African
Listen to Koos Kombuis
Over an old radio
In a shack
Sour milk from the town
A bread from Sasko Sam
I teach the children to beg
In the traffic jam

We are all making a fire
We all like to barbecue
We all mix our language
And everyone betrays each other

Protests, protests, protests, Toys-R-Us
We are being misused
By people of a higher
Classes are too full
But the lunch bags are empty
And everybody just wildly eats politics
Instead of moving on

CHORUS:
But we are proudly South African
Listen to Koos Kombuis
Over an old radio
In a shack
Sour milk from the town
A bread from Sasko Sam
I teach the children to beg
In the traffic jam

CHORUS: (2X)
And we stay proudly South African
Listen to Koos Kombuis
Over an old radio
In a shack
Sour milk from the town
A bread from Sasko Sam
I teach the children to beg
In the traffic jam
