Kuja nami, tuungane tuache kuzozana

Ngatiende tiende mberi

Wajua upendo hauna kifani 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!

 

(Chorus)

Twende Twende

Kuja nami

Upande upande

We ongoza nikufuate

Tiende tiende

Mberi mberi

Kwete shure

Zunguka zunguzuka neni

 

Zvinoda rudo kubatana kuti tibudirire

Twahitaji upendo ili tusonge mbele

Kutambura kwedu zvichida hatina rudo

Ukosefu wa upendo hulete dhiki

 

There’s more to Mama Africa

Than poverty and war

I wish we had a fighting chance

To show off who we are

 

 

Bongo thinas , Bongo thinas , Bongo thinas

Hatidi

Bongo thinas , Bongo thinas , Bongo thinas

Sitaki

 

Ukiumizwa hata mimi ninasikia uchungu

Ukiangushwa ninalia ukilia dada

Chinokubanda misodzi yangu inobuda

Paunosuwa moyo wangu unorwadza

 

You hear the music miles around

The drumbeats never end

With voices raised for Afrika

Nkosi Sikelel’I (Ibariki Afrika)

(Chorus)
