The Tshongololo Jive 



Weird Tshongolo o bug with your many feet

Legs not ever loosing its beat

Follow each other in high speed

Like a choo-choo train indeed

Moving indoors to tell us itís going to rain

Why do you roll up like a wheel when I touch you man


Why do you hide your head

Or is that the reason why they call you centipede

If I pick you up you shit on my hand

Are you afraid of me my mate

You unroll your wheel after resting for awhile

And rush forward to where ever you go

Till something gets in your way

And then you roll up and play dead again

Why not running instead

Weird Tshongololo with your many feet

Does any of your legs ever gets in the way

To make you trip and fall

I call you a little god of the rain

But to children you could be such a pain

Ashley calls you a piece of shit

Ed would call you a French fry's friend

Tshongololo brown or black

Or Green to fit this bit...

Doing The Tshongololo Jive

World Beat. Township Jive. Regionalism translated into universalism. Well done.

Twinka, you little inka,
me thinking,
you always inking,
like a star twinking.
I see you shining,
over there word mining.
If words were gold,
you'd already have a rich hold.

Ed would call you a French fry's friend

HO HO!! Even French Frys need a friend once in awhile, too, ya know, Tinka!

And yes, I even like these little critters; they fascinate me with all their legs - and my wife is absolutely terrified of them.

PS You should find your little Tshongololo friend a female Tshongololo friend!! And that is one great graphic.
