Found on Human Nature.

Lala Salama
To the Masai Mara
And asante sana
To Kichwa Tembo

I'm going Oloololo
Back to the world where I'm from
Soon I'll be flying solo
On a heading that follows the sun

Oloololo, Oloololo, 'loololo

'Cause I've been down from Nairobi
Southeast of Kisumu
To the waiting savanna
Like a place that I once knew

And the river was flowing
While the crocodile baked in the sun
With the elephant knowing
That a change had already begun

Oloololo, Oloololo, 'loololo

Oloololo, Oloololo
(Lala Salama) Oloololo (To the Masai Mara)
(And asante sana) Oloololo (To Kichwa Tembo)
