So we tweaked things a bit with our latest Taxijam – The Umlungu from Cape Town – Quite A White Ou jumped into the taxi to give us a little taste of his jump an jive…
We even had Mr African Dope himself – Fletcher in the front seat running the “Taxijam Sound System”
The breakout track from the freshest crazy Xhosa white boy in eMzantsi (South Africa), ndingumlungu means “Im a white ou”.
The track’s lyrics and translations can be learnt in the “Learn the Lyrics” video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ogoLeUj2Y2U)
Or the lyrics can be found below:
INTRO: Mamelani eh eh mamelani eh eh x 2 – Listen y’all!
Ndisafunda isiXhosa (Im still learning Xhosa)
Ndithetha kancinci. (I speak a little only)
So Khawuzekelele (So Please talk slowly)
xa uthetha nami (when you speak with me) X 2
Ndithetha kancinci kuba ndingumlungu*
I talk a little xhosa because I’m a white ou.
Ngikhuluma kancane kuba ndingumlungu
I talk a little zulu because I’m a white ou.
Andikwazi ukujiva kuba ndingumlungu
I don’t know how to dance because I’m a white ou.
Andikwazi ukucula kuba ndingumlungu
I don’t know how to sing because I’m a white ou.
Andithathi iteksi x2 kuba ndingumlungu
I don’t take taxis because I’m a white ou.
Ndiqhuba Mercedes x2 kuba ndingumlungu
I drive a Mercedes because I’m a white ou.
Andikwazi ukushela kuba ndingumlungu
I don’t pick up girls because I’m a white ou.
Ndithanda ukukempa kuba ndingumlungu
I love to camp because I’m a white ou.
Ndinxiba ishortsi kuba ndingumlungu
I wear shorts because I’m a white ou.
[Andiqondi (I don’t understand), andikuva (I don’t get you) x3, eh, andiqondi] x 2.
Cool and Nice Hot and Spice
Like vanilla ice like pap n rice
You know I’m down, Come get down
Umlungu waseCape town with ingamla yaseCape Town
(White guy from Cape Town) (with the Whitey from Cape Town)
Hayi bo!! Hayi bo!! X 2:
