Waka Waka Lyrics

[Letra de “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)” ft. Freshlyground]

[Verse 1: Shakira]

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’re getting closer, this isn’t over

[Pre-Chorus: Shakira]

The pressure’s 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
‘Cause this is Africa

[Chorus: Shakira]

Tsamina mina, eh eh
Waka waka, eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
This time for Africa

[Verse 2: Shakira]

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

[Pre-Chorus: Shakira]

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
