Simba na shibli

(Music: Toshiyuki Yasuda, Lyrics: Swinky)

ⒸToshiyuki Yasuda, Esther Thirimu


[A1]

Nimekula asali udogoni

Utamu ungali magegoni

Siwezi sahau ulikonitoa

Rehema zako zadumu daima


[A2]

Wanilinda kama mama simba

Huwalinda shibli wake wote

Kila siku wanishughulikia

Nataka pia kuwa mwamba


[A1]


[B1]

Nilipokosa nguvu ni we

Uliyenitia nguvu mm

Nilipokosa tumaini eh

Ulinipa tumaini

Asante


[A2]


[B2]

Matajiri wengi hulia

Upweke unawamaliza

Mali na ujuzi haitoshi

Kila mtu anahitaji kupendwa



(English translation)


Lion and Lion Cub


[A1]

I have known your goodness

And the memory stays with me

I will always remember what you've done for me

Your mercies endure forever


[A2]

You watch over me

Like a lioness cares for her cubs

You take care of me every day

I want to be strong too


[A1]


[B1]

When I was weak, you gave me strength

When I lost hope, you helped me believe

Thank you


[A2]


[B2]

There are many who are rich

But loneliness consumes them

Wealth and knowledge aren't enough

Everybody needs to be loved
