Pick yourself up and dust yourself off…

Shakira~~ WAKA WAKA

I love how music makes me feel, how it can change my mood, how it can make me feel energetic or mellow. How I can count on lyrics to tell me something I just needed to hear even if only part of the song applies. I really like Shakira. A lot of her songs make me get up and start dancing while I can hear things I want to hear, this is just one of them. I may even play it more than once. It makes me feel instant happiness. I feel that this song has a lot of lyrics meant for me!

These are the lyrics… they speak to me
________________________________________
You’re a good soldier
Choosing your battles
Pick yourself up and dust yourself off
And 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 is on
You feel it
But you’ve 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 hesitation
Today’s your day
I feel it
You paved the way
Believe it
If you get down, get up, oh oh
When get down, get up, eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
It’s 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
Awela majoni biggie biggie mama, one a to zet
Athi susa lamajoni biggie biggie mama from east to west
Bathi waka waka ma EH EH!
Waka waka ma EH EH!
Zonk’ izizwe mazibuye…
Cause this is Africa!
Tsamina, anawa a a
Tsamina mina
Tsamina mina, anawa a a
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
This time for Africa
We’re all Africa

  1. Hello Betty..

    A couple of weeks ago I have posted this song over G plus…
    It is so uplifting and really makes me want to dance…

    The new song by Shakira for the International Football Cup which starts in June this year is not as good as “Waka Waka”, as I see it ..

    Thanks for following my blog.
    Best wishes, Aquileana ๐Ÿ™‚

    • It really is uplifting and every time I listen to it, I can’t help myself and have to get up and dance.

      Thank you for stopping by and reading. I look forward to reading more of your very interesting blog. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Soy Luna, I too really enjoy this song everytime I hear it. I like most of what Shakira does, anyway. And yes, the time is NOW for Africa to rise to the leadership challenges. Several of my favorite bloggers leave and teach in various African countries and are SO talented and unselfish, always with a wonderful sense of humour. So pleased you dropped in on my blog. Thank you very much! Hope to see you there following.

    • Granbee, thank you for stopping by mine. I will definitely be visiting your blog more often. I am following you so that I can keep up with you.
