Let’s not stand on ceremony

Let’s not stand on ceremony

Be blinded by the pomp!

Don’t think you can cling to power

Through how you dress things up.


We see through that palaver

The masquerade and games.

We all respect the history

But things can’t stay the same.


We like change to be gradual

The past not swept away.

But know that in the end

It’s the people who hold sway.
