Twende Twende
by Eric Wainaina

Bongo thinas
Bongo thinas
Zunguka Zunguzuka neni

Kuja nami tuungane tuache kuzozana
Ngatiende tiende mberi
Wajua Upendo hauna mfano hauna adui kaka
Takabatana savatema

It's pole pole going slow
But still we're keeping time
We're facing forward looking up
Forgetting what's behind

Twende Afrika heyo!

Twende Twende
Kuja nami
Twende Twende
Upande upande
We ongoza nikufuate

Tiende tiende
Mberi mberi
Twende Twende
Kwete shure
Zunguka Zunguzuka neni

Zvinoda rudo kubatana Kuti tibudirire
Twahitaji upendo ili tusonge mbele
Kutambura kwedu Zvichida hatina rudo
Ukosefu wa upendo waleta dhiki

There's more to Mama Africa
Than poverty and war
I wish we had a fighting chance
To show off who we are

Twende Twende
Kuja nami
Twende Twende
Upande upande
We ongoza nikufuate

Tiende tiende
Mberi mberi
Twende Twende
Kwete shure
Zunguka Zunguzuka neni

Bongo thinas
Bongo thinas
Bongo thinas
Hatidi

Bongo thinas
Bongo thinas
Bongo thinas
Sitaki

Ukiumizwa hata mimi ninasikia uchungu
‘kiangaishwa ninalia ukilia dada
Chinokubanda misodzi yangu inobuda
Paunosuwa moyo wangu unorwadza

You hear the music miles around
The drumbeats never end
The voices raised for Africa
Nkosi Sikeleli

Twende Twende
Kuja nami
Twende Twende
Upande upande
We ongoza nikufuate

Tiende tiende
Mberi mberi
Twende Twende
Kwete shure
Zunguka Zunguzuka neni
