Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)

Africa becomes the talk of the town in the late part of 2010 as well as this early 2011. Not only because of the 2010 FIFA Soccer event, but also with this dance hit by Shakira!

Yup, Shakira popularized another dance craze last 2010. And it becomes the official theme song of the 2010 World FIFA game! This hit is called "Waka Waka" a.k.a. "This Time for Africa"!

Are you feeling dancin' right now because of this dance craze?! What can you feel hearing this joyous song?!

I first heard this song in one of the variety show on TV. Alex Gonzaga even dances it in their showbiz oriented show "Juicy". Then it was played in one of the bar I have attended last December. I like how the people dance with its cool beat!

In our office, one of our teammates really love this song. According to her, this is her current favorite song. She even told me the title of it since at first, I really don't know the title of it!

So let's stop talking too much right now and let's feel the beat and the heat of this song! C'mon and let's dance with me while listening and watching with its official music video! Afterwards, let's sing with its cool lyrics! Go, go, go...! c",)

Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)

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
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 feel it
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 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 aa
Tsamina mina eh eh
Waka waka eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
This time for Africa
