BABA NANGO

 

I’m travelling light I’m going to Baba Nango

I’m leaving tonight I’m going to Baba Nango

I’m leaving my crying behind I’m going to Baba Nango

And when my people see me they will say

“Halala! It’s the child of the hungry Earth.”

 

CHORUS:

Wo halala halalo halala!

Halala halalo halala ingane yakithi! (Halala child of ours)

 

I’m going back to find my eyes blinded by the night

I know a star that shines above Baba Nango

I’m going back to find a lost child calling

And when my people see me they will say

“Halala! It’s the child of the dark morning.”

 

CHORUS:

Woodsmoke clinging to the evenings in Baba Nango

warm bodies curled in a fireplace in Baba Nango

My name is on the lips of an old woman mourning

 

CHORUS:

wo buye ingane yakithi (Oh return child of ours)

Kwelezontaba ezakithi (Return to the mountains of our home)
