Shakira Waka Waka English 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 frontline, 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
Go on and feed them, 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

Shakira Waka Waka Spanish (Esto es África) Lyrics

[Intro]
Oooeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeehh!
Viva Africa (Otra, otra)
Viva Africa (Otra, otra)
Viva Africa (Otra, otra)
Viva Africa (Otra, otra)


[Verso 1: Shakira]
Llegó el momento, caen las murallas
Va a comenzar la única justa de las batallas
No duele el golpe, no existe el miedo
Quítate el polvo, ponte de pie, y vuelves al ruedo

[Pre-Coro: Shakira]
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

[Coro: Shakira]
Tsamina mina, eh, eh
Waka waka, eh, eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
Porque esto es África

[Verso 2: Shakira]
Oye a tu Dios y no estarás solo
Llegaste aquí para brillar, lo tienes todo
La hora se acerca, es el momento
Vas a ganar cada batalla, ya lo presiento

[Pre-Coro: Shakira]
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

[Coro: Shakira]
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

[Verso 3: Zolani]
Awabuye lamajoni, ipikipiki mama wa A to Z
Bathi susa lamajoni, ipikipiki mama from East to West
Bathi waka waka mah, eh, eh
Waka waka mah, eh, eh
Zonk' izizwe mazibuye
‘Cause this is Africa
