Shakira - Waka Waka Lyrics

Biography Discography Lyrics Concerts

Waka Waka is the official song for the FIFA World Cup 2010 which took place between 11 June and 11 July 2010 in South Africa.
Shakira samples an African song, Zangalewa, and keeps the African voices in the chorus.

Zangalewa is part of the repertoire of soldiers, but also of youth groups like Scouts, throughout Africa. Its rhythm is catchy and it can serve as marching song.
It was popularized by the Cameroonian military band Golden Sounds in 1986. It was such a success that he changed his name Zangalewa. It is sometimes called Zamina undermined by the first words.

Shakira participated in June 2010, at the opening concert of the FIFA World Cup in South Africa with other artists like Alicia Keys, John Legend and the Black Eyed Peas. The song Time for Africa / Esto es África (Waka Waka) has been recorded specially for the occasion with South African group Freshlyground and will be the official anthem of the competition. As in 2006, Shakira also participate in the tournament's final concert.

Shakira - Waka Waka

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

Y la presion que sientes
Espera en ti, tu gente!
Ahora vamos por todo
y te acompaña la suerte
Tsamina mina zangalewa
Porque esto es Africa

Tsamina mina eh eh
Waka waka eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
Porque esto es Africa

Oye a tu dios
y no estaras solo
llegas aqui para brillar
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
Porque esto es Africa

Tsamina mina eh eh
Waka waka eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
Porque esto es Africa
