    Give details

    Everywhere you look now, questionnaires
    They want every detail of your affairs
    Oh, so many people lives
    Wrapped up in those…

    Statistics, statistics – figures in a page
    Statistics, statistics – numbers on a tape
    Zulu, Xhosa, Sotho, Venda
    Zulu, Xhosa, Sotho, Venda

    Everywhere you go now you're in their sight
    Yes, they classify you – shades of black and white
    Oh, so many people lives
    Wrapped up in those…

    Statistics, statistics – figures in a page
    Statistics, statistics – numbers on a tape
    Zulu, Xhosa, Sotho, Venda
    Zulu, Xhosa, Sotho, Venda

    No chance of going back and putting things right
    These people rule with facts in the night
    So many people lives
    Wrapped up in those…

    Statistics, statistics – figures in a page
    Statistics, statistics – numbers on a tape
    Statistics, statistics

    Who are you?
    Give details
    Who are you?
    Give details

    Zulu, Xhosa, Sotho, Venda
    Zulu, Xhosa, Sotho, Venda

    Statistics, statistics – numbers on a tape
