Here are the Lyrics to their featured song “Enter the Ninja” (from LyricWiki)

I, I, I
I am your butterfly
I need your protection
Need my samurai
I, I, I
I am your butterfly
I need your protection
Need your protection

I’m a ninja, yo
My life is like a videogame
I maintain when I’m in the zone
One player one life on the mic
I’m in the dark

Yo, ninja, go

No fuckin around I’m cutting down
Anyone in my path
Tryna fuck up my game with razor sharp
Lyrical throw stars
Killin’ my flow

Hos! Ska!

Wild, outta control

Ninja skop befokte rof taal
Rough rhymes, tough times
Met fokkol kos, skraal
Till I hit triple seven at the ATM
Straight famine or feast,
When you’re living on the razor edge
Stay sharp, sharp
Rolling with the $O$
High energy
Never seen zef so fresh
Uh, when we mic check
Hi-def flow’s best

Motherfucking the best
We not like the rest
My style is UFO
Totally unknown
You can’t fuck with my new Zef flow
I’m hard to miss
“You can’t do this, you can’t do that”
Yo, fuckin’ who said so?
I do what I like
Too hot to handle, too cold to hold
You can’t fuck with the chosen one
I-I-I want the knife
I’m a Ninja

Hook x2

Ninja is poes cool
But don’t fuck with my game
Boy or I’ll poes you
Life is tough
When I get stuck
When my time is up
I push through
Till I break-break-break
on through to the other side
Fantastically poor with faces like a stalker

Ninja is hardcore
Been cut so deep, feel no pain
Its not sore
Don’t ask for kak or
You’ll get what you ask for
I’m like a wild animal in the corner
Waiting for the break of dawn
Trying to get through the night
Just a man with the will to survive
My blade swing freely
Decapitate a hater with amazing ease
This is not a game, boy
Don’t play with me
I work my light sabre like a wild fucking savage
from the dark side danger
Yin to the yang
Totally Hi-Tek Ninjas
Motherfucking big in Japan
I seen the future, but I never got nothing in my hand
Except a microphone, big dreams and a plan
Fly-talking, sky-walking
Like a ninja

Hook x2

Fuck, this is like
The coolest song I ever heard in my whole life
Fuck all of you who said I wouldn’t make it
Who said I was a loser
Said I was a no-one
Said I was a fuckin’ psycho
But look at me now:
All up on the interweb
World-wide, 2009. futurista
Enter the ninja
Yolandi Visser
DJ Hi-Tek
Die fokken Antwoord

I, I, I (I’m a ninja)
I am your butterfly
I need your protection
Need my samurai
I, I, I (yo I’m a ninja)
I am your butterfly
I need your protection
Need your protection

I, I, I (I’m a ninja)
I am your butterfly
I need your protection
Need my samurai
I, I, I (a motherfuckin’ ninja)
I am your butterfly
I need your protection
Need your protection


  1. It is blowing my mind.

    It’s not ”Fantastically poor with faces like a stalker,” it should read ”Fantastically poor with patience like a stalker”

  9. gemaskerde Kapsiel

    I love it. Thank heavens for something new …not like the other band wagon members like eden and theuns and those kind of poephols.

  10. Tweak

    Great! I’ve been looking for the lyrics everywhere, I just noticed that while I was listening to the song that you got some of the lyrics wrong.

  11. This is sooo great!! I found some more lyrics by the antwoord here: I LOVE IT!

  12. deepa

  24. Sarah

    this is the worst song I have ever heard in my life, they make absolutely no sense! interweb? what the fuck? he is a psycho!

  25. Tasha

    Whatever Sarah, are you famous? in case you weren’t aware- websites are different to the internet as a whole! hence not having www at the beginning, but does. So I guess the guys from Die Antwoord are meaning that they’re owning the internet and web as a whole- and I guess too that they’re a bit smarter than you so “jealousy is a disease- get well soon” !!

  26. Laggies!

  27. Elfie van Zyl

    What ever, Sarah! Isn’t music art?? Who cares what they “invent” when they write their songs, as long as we understand where they’re going with it. If you can’t listen with an “creative” ear, keep you’re comments to yourself beeatch. And yes, maybe he is physco, but so am I…

  28. Davynn

    die antwoord rocks im there number 1 fan iv got all there cd’s and made my self a t-shirt joh julle is befok my bras

  29. FAN

  30. Colored ou

    This is what Eminem would sound like if he was from the Cape flats.This is some good shitt…..i`m loving it….well done “Die antwoord” i`ll buy your cd.

  31. Kimz

    The antwoord is kinda fun to listen to but weak in a lyrical sense

  32. PG

    I can’t work out if this is brilliant or awful. Very very catchy and refrain and the rapping has a great flow. Very original sounding. The catchiness of it will be what decides their fate and so I expect them to have big success with this song.
    Does anyone know if the lyrics are intended to be tongue in cheek. (like Goldie Looking Chain) If they are then I think the lyrics are genius, if the guy is singing them totally straight then he sounds a bit of a wally.

  33. ekke


  34. veronica and katrina

    this is the best song that i have ever heard all up in the interweb, bra. keep it bakgat ekse

  35. Ivan Steyn

  37. veronica,katrina

  38. Chris



    Saw these guys in amsterdam live, was off the scale man!!!

    So stay with your conventional bands like take that and westlife weirdo!

  39. Pnky

    What a load of crap! They have zippo intelligence1

  40. E

    why does no one see that these people are possessed, be it satan or some other dark energy. ITS RIGHT THERE, open your eyes people and stop letting yourself be brainwashed

  41. O

    Regtig? Van al die Afrikaanse musiek opsies??

    Defnitief die VERKEERDE antwoord.

    ‘n Tragiese dag in die Afrikaanse geskiedenis toe bg. musiekgroep tot stand gebring is.

  42. whacko

    The Barbarians are at the gate….

  43. Cheri

  45. die antmoo

    yo man dis shit be pumping flytalkin skywalkn likeaninja

  46. miningeaaaah

    ill scream die fokken antwoord till death

  47. Chanelle

    Lmga! Dis some heavy stuff. I’m not such a big Die Antwoord fan but my boyfriend is. Lol and now I see why. These guys are sweet. I read these lyrics while I was home sick, and I think it made me laugh out my sickness. And that’s just the funny side of the song! The serious side is even more awesome! And yes, that is what Eminem would sound like if he was a colored capie! dIe AnTwOoRd rUlEz! AnD sO dO cOlOrEd CaPiEs! (Even though I’m not one myself)

  48. Chanelle

    Oh and by the way, I don’t think you guys should go around dissin eachother on the web. It gives you a bad name. So if you don’t like die antwoord, say it’s a load of crap. And if you like die antwoord, DON’T DISS THOSE WHO SAY IT’S A LOAD OF CRAP. My mom told me that if I have something bad to say, then I should rather not say anything. (I’m such a mommies girl :p)

  49. When I first heard the song, the the hook did as it implied, hooked me into Die fokken Antwoord.

    The lyrics, though they may mean nothing, as no one can tell if they’re joking or serious, to me are well constructed to flow. Sure they don’t maintain meaning 100%, but it would to them.

    Also, I’m pretty sure anyone who says “they’re possessed by the Devil” or whatever, probably doesn’t realize that religion doesn’t matter if it’s not being made for a specific branch of the poisonous tree of religion. If he was saying “SATAND COMMANDS THEE TO CUT THROATS AND RAPE GOATS!” I could understand your fear, but you’re an idiot so I’ll discount that one.
