Is hip-hop hereditary?
I don't know
Oh, the boys move fast
You should take it slow
Well, we all need someone to tell us when to go
A beat-box imaginary in the show
All you shell-toes lined up in a row
All your favorite breaks
Your favorite ELO

Musadabwe ndikamavina ine gule wakwathu uuuu
Kum'mwera kwa Africa kule dziko limodzi lotchedwa
Malawi iiii
Warm heart of Africa kuli magule magule okoma aaaa
Tchopa, manganje, ngoma, vimbuza, maseche ndi
M'ganda aaaa

Zikomo zikomo nonse
Kodi muli bwanji
Ine ndili bwino ooooo
Alendo asaononge
Dziko la mtendere
Malawi wabwino ooooo

Zikatere zikatere tiyeni tilowe m'bwalo
Zikatere zikatere wayaka moto oo
Zikatere zikatere pali ngozi pano
Zikatere zikatere malawi moto oo

Oh please tell me when to go
Iwe newo

    General CommentThe music video for this is hilariously awkward. :D
    The translation for the African part is:

    Don’t be surprised when you see me dancing
    somewhere in the southern region of africa
    there’s a country called malawi
    warm heart of africa
    many gifted dancers around
    tchopa, manganje, ngoma, vimboza, maseche and m'ganda

    hello everybody
    how are you?
    i am fine
    visitors should not spoil this peaceful country
    good malawi

    now, let us go to the dancefloor
    now, the flames are burning
    now, something is happening
    now, malawi is on fire

    This is such a goooood song!

    My OpinionHow are there no comments for this song? It's amazing! I only found it because Ezra sings in it, and I'm a big fan of Vampire Weekend. Anyone see the music video? It's pretty fun to watch.

    General CommentI saw these guys open for Vampire Weekend. It was awesome. I'm not sure if they did this song, I got into them after that night, and all their songs sounded the same so I'm not sure if they did this one.
