Track Name: Maji
Lyrics by: Kombo Chokwe Burns

CHORUS:
Mimi maji, Mwanijua
Wengi waniita bahari, mvua, mto ama ziwa
Mwanijua
Wengi waniita bahari, mvua, mto ama ziwa

VERSE: (2x)
Wengi waniita maji, Maji ni uhai
Mwatatizika nami
Mwasema maji meupe, Baharini samawati
Mtoni maji ya vumbi

PRECHORUS:
Kuishi kwaraha (mwahitaji maji)
Mili yenu isafi (mimi maji)
Bustani zenu zanawiri (mimi maji)
Kiu na maliza (mimi maji)

(CHORUS)

2nd VERSE:
Je mashambani, Mazao kwa wingi
Vicheko na wapa, Mwaishi karibu nami
Asiye penda aseme
Nawachukua mbalimbali, Ulimwenguni mwote
Baharini na mitoni, Nahifadhi nakuwapa
Milki wanyama samaki binadamu

(PRECHORUS)
(CHORUS)

BRIDGE: (2x)
My name is water, Talking to you
My name is water, Listen to me

(CHORUS)

----------------------------------------­------------
English Translation by Kombo:


CHORUS:
I am water, And you know me
You call me ocean, rain, river & lake
You know me
You call me ocean, rain, river & lake

VERSE:
You all call me water. And you say water is life.
Yet, you are confused about me.
You say water is clear, Oceans are blue
and the rivers are brown

PRECHORUS:
To live happily , (you need water)
You are all clean, (it’s me water)
Your gardens are flourishing, (it’s me water)
I quench your thirst, (it’s me water)

(CHORUS)

2nd VERSE:
Look at your farms, There’s much to harvest
and it gives you joy. You live by my side.
Whoever is not satisfied, may speak.
I take you to far places, around the world
through oceans and lakes. I help preserve surroundings
and all living things.

(PRECHORUS) (CHORUS)
BRIDGE: (2x)
My name is water, Talking to you)
My name is water, Listen to me

(CHORUS)
