Shakira - Waka Waka (This Time for Africa) Lyrics
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’re getting closer This isn’t over
The pressure’s on; you feel it But you got it all; believe it When you fall, get up, oh oh And if you fall, get up, eh eh Tsamina mina zangalewa Cause 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 www.musicloversgroup.com Go on and feel it This is your moment No hesitation
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 aa Tsamina mina eh eh Waka waka eh eh Tsamina mina zangalewa This time for Africa
