Words to the National Braai Day Anthem:
Verse 1
The spring has arrived in Southern Africa
Not a cloud in the sky
Only flames in our eyes
As if everybody seems to know what time it is
Time for a braai
It’s time to have some fun

Chorus
I hear those voices until late at night
All together and we feel all right, all right
I see their faces in the golden light
All together and we feel all right, all right
Feeling Alright, hope you feeling alright people…

Verse 2
We stand united at the bonfire
We raise our glasses to the clear, blue sky
Tell me your story and I’ll tell you mine
Things will be better and I’m feeling fine

Chorus
I hear those voices until late at night
All together and we feel all right, all right
I see their faces in the golden light
All together and we feel all right, all right
I’m alright, are you?

Bridge
Try picturing a whole lotta people out at my place.
Everybody chilling. Re dibusa(getting down) by the fire place.
I’ll be in the back. Marinating on the braai vleis
Beer’s in the KEG, Pierre is bringing out the wine case
Its a known phrase,O jo re rata go braaya (we love to braai)
If you got no space chessa nyama o kaya (you can go to a public braaing spot)
If you’re not disgraced, say it loud “BRAAI DAY IS MY DAY”
Even ka labone(even on a thursday) I treat it like its a friday…
So it’s a fly (so it’s a fly day)
We call it a braai day e ne we do it our way
Cause it’s so mzanzi
Happy times are so naturalle in our county
Re rata sunshine
Pull out your smiles come on lets have a fun time
I’ll call Jabba and SGC cause in SA Die Heuwels is so Fantasties!

Chorus
I hear those voices until late at night
All together and we feel all right, all right
I see their faces in the golden light
All together and we feel all right, all right
I hear those voices x4
All together and we feel all right, all right x4
Braai please!!
