In this rousing, humorous song, the sun is the narrator, declaring himself king of all good things in the world including plants, animals, clouds, heat, and even cold: the king of everything! The sun may control people’s lives, however, but not their opinions of the weather, which is parodied by the sun in the way in which it is often complained about in African communities: it is never just hot or cold, the lyrics of Letsatsi tell us, but always ‘too hot’ or ‘too cold’! People are just never satisfied with the weather. Moerane attributes his lyrics to ‘Setsoto’ (Trad.). In order to help choirs learn this song, a free mp3 of the lyrics spoken by Mpho Ndebele is downloadable when the song is purchased along with a rehearsal mp3 of the song at a slow tempo.
