Shakira – Waka Waka lyrics

Oooeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeehhh

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 are getting closer
This isn't over

The pressure is 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
Cuz this is Africa
Tsamina mina, eh eh
Waka waka, eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
This time for Africa

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 feel it
This is your moment
No hesitations

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
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
This time for Africa

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

Voice: Tsamina mina, Anawa a a
Tsamina mina
Tsamina mina, Anawa a a

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
This time for Africa

Django eh eh
Django eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
Anawa a a

Django eh eh
Django eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
Anawa a a

(2x) This time for Africa

(2x) We're all Africa

    The first paragraph to me means that you do not give up easily. The second paragraph to me means that you are the center of attention, which means you have to focus a little harder. The third paragraph to me means that you may be the center of attention but you know you can do it because you have self confidence. The forth paragraph to me means that everyone has faith in you, because if you fail at something you always manage to never give up you keep trying. The fifth paragraph to me means that you should trust your gut, whatever you feel is right do it don't stand around waiting for someone to inform you if it is right or not. The sixth paragraph to me means that when people begin to expect more go big or go home like everyone says. The seventh paragraph to me means that once you push yourself to a certain point you can accomplish anything you wish. All of this sums up to be have faith in yourself and in everyone else around you. Even when timed are rough and it does not seem like anything or anyone are on your side. One you will do something outstanding and awesome, or even completely bewildering that noone thought you could not even yourself. When that day comes do not hesitate to be proud.
