Come, friends and family, and celebrate
Celebrate marimba music with me
Come, friends and family, and celebrate
Celebrate Zimbabwe with me
Zimbabwe that you have been crying for
It has finally arrived
Come on! Come on! Come on! Come on! Hah!

Zimbabwe, Zimbabwe, this country of mine
Zimbabwe, Zimbabwe, a wonderful country
My friend, come and see for yourself, come and see the richness
Come yourself and see, come and see the wealth
Jump, jump jump! Jump, jump jump!
Shake, shake, shake! Shake, shake, shake!

Azania, Azania, this country of mine...
