20 Donegal Street

This is destruction on my own block, after gang warfare. The whole house was destroyed. The lyrics are adapted from the hit The Night Chicago Died.
Daddy was a cop on the east side of Cape Town
Back in the Western Cape, back in the bad old days
In the warmth of a summer's night
In the land of the ten rand bill
When the town of Cape Town died
And they talk about it still

I heard my mama cry
I heard her pray the night that Cape Town died
Brother, what a night it really was
Brother, what a fight it really was
Yes, indeed
