LYRICS!
You’re a good soldier

Choosing your battles
Pick yourself up
And dust yourself off
Get back in the saddle
You’re on the front line
Everyone’s watching
You know it’s serious
We’re getting closer
This isn’t over
The pressure’s on; you feel it
But you got it all; believe it
When you fall, get up, oh oh

And if you fall, get up, eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
Cause this is Africa
Tsamina mina eh eh
Waka waka eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
This time for Africa
Listen to your god; this is our motto
Your time to shine
Don’t wait in line
Y vamos por todo
People are raising their expectations
Go on and feel it
This is your moment
No hesitation
Today’s your day
I feel it
You paved the way,
Believe it
If you get down

Get up oh, oh
When you get down,
Get up eh, eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
This time for Africa
Tsamina mina eh eh
Waka waka eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
Anawa aa
Tsamina mina eh eh
Waka waka eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
This time for Africa

Hey, this is the first time I've really stumbled across you're blog and I'm so shocked. It is awesome!

Also I love the World Cup, I always watch it and vouch for the underdogs. I totally agree with you're reasons why to watch it, plus I think the atmosphere is really something else.

As for the answers to your quiz I'd love to know them. They're pretty interesting:) Guess I'll wait for you're next post to find them ;D(L).
