I’ll be doing this small segment with my favourite songs, including a video from youtube and when possible the lyrics and possibly an english translation. So to the first, Loliwe by Zahara from South Africa; the song is in Xhosa.

uLoliwe wayidudula [“the train is pushing”]
uLoliwe wayidudula
uLoliwe wayidudula
Nang’esiza [“here it comes”]
uLoliwe wayidudula
uLoliwe wayidudula
uLoliwe wayidudula
Nang’esiza
Sul’ezonyembezi mntakwethu [“wipe those tears off, loved one”]
Sul’ezonyembezi mntakwethu
Sul’ezonyembezi mntakwethu
Nang’esiza
Sul’ezonyembezi mntakwethu
Sul’ezonyembezi mntakwethu
Sul’ezonyembezi mntakwethu
Nang’esiza
uLoliwe wayidudula
uLoliwe wayidudula
uLoliwe wayidudula
Nang’esiza
uLoliwe wayidudula
uLoliwe wayidudula
uLoliwe wayidudula
Nang’esiza
Phezulu, eNkosini [“in Heaven, in the Lord”]
Kuhlal ‘ingcwele zodwa [“lives only the holy”]
Mawufuna ukuya khona, thandaza [“if you want to go there, pray”]
Phezulu, eNkosini
Kuhlal ‘ingcwele zodwa
Mawufuna ukuya khona, thandaza
uLoliwe wayidudula
uLoliwe wayidudula
uLoliwe wayidudula
Nang’esiza
uLoliwe wayidudula
uLoliwe wayidudula
uLoliwe wayidudula
Nang’esiza
Sul’ezonyembezi mntakwethu
Sul’ezonyembezi mntakwethu
Sul’ezonyembezi mntakwethu
Nang’esiza
Sul’ezonyembezi mntakwethu
Sul’ezonyembezi mntakwethu
Sul’ezonyembezi mntakwethu
Nang’esiza
Phezulu, eNkosini
Kuhlal ‘ingcwele zodwa
Mawufuna ukuya khona, thandaza
Phezulu, eNkosini
Kuhlal ‘ingcwele zodwa
Mawufuna ukuya khona, thandaza
