The stars take your heart
because the stars aren't the least bit hungry for you!
the stars exchange your heart for the heart of a star
the stars take your heart and feed you the heart of a star
then you'll never be hungry again
because the stars say: 'Tsau! Tsau!'
and the bushmen say the stars curse the springbok's eyes
the stars say: 'Tsau!' they say: 'Tsau! Tsau!'
they curse the springbok's eyes
I grew up listening the stars the stars say: 'Tsau! Tsau!'
it's always summer when you hear the stars saying Tsau
