Waving Flag

26 Days!!!!!!!!!! For what, you may ask? Only for the celebration of the most beautiful game in the world. Here's the South Africa 2010 World Cup Official Anthem by K'naan and David Bisbal. Worth your time. 




Give me freedom
Give me fire
give me reason
Take me higher
see the champions
take the field now
you’ll be fighters
make us feel proud

En las calles muchas manos (in the streets many hands)
levantadas, celebrando (raised, celebrating)
una fiesta sin descanzo (a party without rest)
los paises como hermanos (countries are brothers)

Canta y une tu voz (sing and join your voice)
grita fuerte que te escuche el sol (shout until the sun hears you)
el partido ya va a comenzar (the game is about to start)
todos juntos vamos a ganar (all together we will win)

Unidos! (United!)
Seremos grandes, (We'll be great)
seremos fuertes (We'll be strong)
somos un pueblo (we are one people)
bandera de libertad (flag of liberty)
que viene y que va (x3) (that comes and goes)

when i get older
i will be stronger
they’ll call me freedom
just like a wavin flag
Now wave your flag (x3)

ohhh ohhh ohhh ohhh
Danos vida (give us life)
danos fuego (give us fire)
que nos lleve a lo alto (let it raise us)
campeones o vencidos (champions or defeated)
pero unidos a internarlos (but united in trying)

In the streets
are exalted people
as we lose our inhibitions
celebration is around us
every nation all around us

Singing forever young, singing
songs underneath the sun
let’s rejoice to the beautiful game
and together at the end of day

Seremos grandes,
seremos fuertes
somos un pueblo
bandera de la libertad
que viene y que va (x3)

when i get older
i will be stronger
they’ll call me freedom
just like a wavin flag
Now wave your flag (x3)

ohhh ohhh ohhh ohhh
Unidos!
Seremos grandes,
seremos fuertes
somos un pueblo
bandera de la libertad

when i get older
i will be stronger
they’ll call me freedom
just like a wavin flag
Now wave your flag (x3)

ohhh ohhh ohhh ohhh
And everybody
will be singing…


My blue and white is ready to shine. South Africa is almost here!!! Vamos Argentina!
