"Waka Waka" as written by Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, John Hill, Emile Kojidie, Dooh Belly Eugene Victor and Za Bell Jean Paul....
Llegó el momento, caen las murallas
Va a comenzar la única justa de la batallas
No duele el golpe, no existe el miedo
Quítate el polvo, ponte de pie y vuelves al ruedo

Y la presión se siente
Espera en ti, tu gente
Ahora vamos por todo
Y te acompaña la suerte
Tsamina mina zangalewa
Porque esto es África

Tsamina mina eh eh
Waka waka eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
Porque esto es África

Oye a tu Dios
Y no estarás solo
Llegas aquí para brillar
Lo tienes todo
La hora se acerca
Es el momento
Vas a ganar cada batalla
Ya lo presiento

Hay que empezar de cero
Para tocar el cielo
Ahora vamos por todo
Y todos vamos por ellos
Tsamina mina zangalewa
Porque esto es África

Tsamina mina eh eh
Waka waka eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
Anawa a a

Tsamina mina eh eh
Waka waka eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
Porque esto es África

Tsamina mina
Tsamina mina zangalewa
Porque esto es África

Tsamina mina eh eh
Waka waka eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
Anawa a a

Tsamina mina eh eh
Waka waka eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
Porque esto es África

Tsamina mina zangalewa
Anawa a a

Tsamina mina zangalewa
Anawa a a

Porque esto es África
Porque esto es África
We are all Africa
We are all Africa

    General CommentThis is a really upbeat song glad there is no Vuvuzela's used as an instrument :).
    Waka waka
    Tsamina mina zangalewa
    What language is that?

    "Y vamos por Todo"
    means we are everthing,in spanish

    This song is about believing in yourself and if you fall you get up and dust your self off and try again.
    DO WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN !!!!!

    General Comment"Listen to your god
    Shakira Waka Waka lyrics found on directlyrics.com.com/…
    This is our motto
    Your time to shine
    Dont wait in line
    Y vamos por Todo"

    She really pours her heart out on this verse. I sense a "Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite" situation with that web address in there!

    Lyric CorrectionThis is missing the solo by Zolani Mahola:
    Awela Majoni Biggie Biggie Mama One A To Zet
    Athi sithi LaMajoni Biggie Biggie Mama From East To West
    Bathi
    Waka Waka Ma Eh Eh Waka Waka Ma Eh Eh
    Zonke zizwe mazi buye
    Cuz this is Africa

    Also, it's worth noting the meaning of the chorus:
    Waka waka = Do it [the work, the job]!
    Tsamina mina zangalewa = Where do you come from?
