Raffi – Sambalele lyrics

Sambalele is a show off, flung high a stone to hit a Mango
Mango stayed up, stone fell down on his head
Sambalele is home in bed:

Chorus: oh, step and step and twirl oh, menina
Hold your skirt and whirl oh, menina
Step and step and twirl oh, menina
You are the prettiest girl oh, menina

Sambalele is a show off, he set a snare to catch a rabbit
Did not know how, caught his big toe instead
Sambalele is home in bed. Oh! В... В...


Sambalele is a show off, built him some stilts to be a tall Man
He took a tumble on his great big head,
Sambalele is home in bed, oh!


Sambalele is home in bed.
