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
Zamina mina zangalewa1
‘Cause this is Africa Zamina mina, hé hé2
Waka waka, hé hé
Zamina 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!3
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
Zamina mina zangalewa
This time for Africa Zamina mina, hé hé4
Waka waka, hé hé
Zamina mina zangalewa
