Oooeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeehh

 

You’re a good soldier

Choosing your battles

Pick yourself up

And dust yourself off

Get back in the saddle

 

You’re on the front line

Everyone’s watching

You know it’s serious

We are getting closer

This isn’t over

 

The pressure is on

You feel it

But you got it all

Believe it

 

When you fall get up, oh oh

If you fall get up, eh eh

Tsamina mina zangalewa

Cuz this is Africa

Tsamina mina, eh eh

Waka waka, eh eh

Tsamina mina zangalewa

This time for Africa

 

Listen to your God

This is our motto

Your time to shine

Don’t wait in line

Y vamos por todo

 

People are raising

Their expectations

Go on and feed them

This is your moment

No hesitations

 

Today’s your day

I feel it

You paved the way

Believe it

 

If you get down get up, oh oh

When you get down get up, eh eh

Tsamina mina zangalewa

This time for Africa

Tsamina mina, eh eh

Waka waka, eh eh
