Shakira – Waka Waka (Esto es África)

And March is suddenly here, so it’s time for me to switch up the languages a little bit! This month I’ll be focussing on Spanish for the songs and I’ve decided to start off with this really famous one from Shakira. It was the song of the 2010 FIFA World Cup and most people have probably heard it in English and Spanish because it was played soooooo often (or it was here, anyway). It’s really catchy and the chorus is easy, so anyone can sing along.

So, here are the lyrics and at the bottom there’s a link to the lyricstraining game you can play with this song!

Waka Waka (Esto es África)

Llegó el momento, caen las murallas
Va a comenzar la unica justa de las batallas
No duele el golpe, no existe el miedo
Quitate el polvo, ponte de pie y vuelves al ruedo

Y la pasión, se siente
Espera en ti tu gente

Ahora vamos por todo
Y te acompaña la suerte
Tsamina mina zangalewa
Porqué esto es África

Tsamina mina eh, eh
Waka Waka eh, eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
Porqué esto es África

Oye a tu dios y no estarás solo
Llegaste aquí para brillar y lo tienes todo
La hora se acerca, es el momento
Vas a ganar cada batalla, ya lo presiento

Hay que empezar de cero
Para tocar el cielo

Ahora vamos por todo
Y todos vamos por ellos
Tsamina mina zangalewa
Porqué esto es África

Tsamina mina eh, eh
Waka waka eh, eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
Anawa aa

Tsamina mina eh, eh
Waka waka eh, eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
Porqué esto es África

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
Cause this is Africa

Tsamina mina, Anawa, ah ah
Tsamina mina
Tsamina mina, Anawa, ah ah

Tsamina mina, eh eh
Waka waka, eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
Anawa, ah ah

Tsamina mina, eh eh
Waka waka, eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
Porqué esto es África

Yango eh eh
Yango eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
Anawa, ah ah

Yango eh eh
Yango eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
Porqué esto es África

Porqué esto es África
Porqué esto es África

We’re all Africa
We’re all Africa
