Demo: 

Waar slaap jy vanaand?-Marthie Nel Hauptfleisch-Woman On Fire

Liner Notes: 

I have so many family and friends who commute far for business- this is a song for them who wake up far from home. This is a song revisited: I had to chop quite a bit from the original 6 minutes to get to 3:30.
Busy working on Afrikaans album #Potloodsket: I thought it would all be about love- I guess not all of them are going to be romantic then...although it could be interpreted that way...
I've always wanted to do a song with lots of village names in it...

English
Where are you sleeping tonight?

1. I know it's not pleasant
Sleeping in a different place every night
I know you don't complain
Enjoy the people you meet
It may not be the Cape
New people - every night

Choir: Where are you sleeping tonight?
What does Table Mountain look like when you get up
With the long road ahead and the long road behind
Send me a message when you get there

2. Your car is your office
And you fly earlier than all the other people who wake up
Before your clients to be there
to make good use of time

3. Do you know how many people commute
daily between cities by plane
Johannesburg, Gabarone and back in day
The Boundaries No Longer Matter

Use: Pretoria. Midrand. Kroonstad. Welcome.
Theunissen. Bloemfontein. Reddersburg.
Smithfield. Rouxville. Aliwal North. Queenstown.
Sutherland (Stutterheim)
Buy me a coffee at the Wimpy
'Buy me a coffee at the Wimpy
And a better book to read tonight
Because I'm traveling alone again tonight'

Where are you sleeping tonight?
What does Table Mountain look like when you get up
With the long road ahead
and the long road behind
Send me a message when you get there

Lyrics: 

Waar slaap jy vanaand?

1. Ek weet dis nie lekker nie
Om Elke aand op ‘n ander plek te slaap nie
Ek weet jy kla nie
Geniet die mense wat jy ontmoet
Dis miskien nie die Kaap nie
Nuwe mense- elke aand

Koor: Waar slaap jy vanaand?
Hoe lyk Tafelberg as jy opstaan
Met die lang pad voor en die lang pad agter
Stuur vir my ‘n boodskap as jy daar aankom

2. Jou motor is jou kantoor
En jy vlieg vroeer as al die ander mense wat wakker word
Voor jou kliente om daar te wees
om die tyd te benut

3.Weet jy hoeveel mense pendel
daagliks tussen stede met vliegtuige
Johannesburg, Gabarone en terug in dag
Die Grense maak nie meer saak nie

Brug: Pretoria. Midrand. Kroonstad. Welkom.
Theunissen. Bloemfontein. Reddersburg.
Smithfield. Rouxville. Aliwal Noord. Queenstown.
Sutherland(Stutterheim)
Koop vir my ‘n koffie by die Wimpy
'Koop vir my ‘n koffie by die Wimpy
En ‘n beter boek om te lees vanaand
Want ek reis weer vanaand alleen'

Waar slaap jy vanaand?
Hoe lyk Tafelberg as jy opstaan
Met die lang pad voor
en die lang pad agter
Stuur vir my ‘n boodskap as jy daar aankom
