Wild World (Bana, Bana)

(Words, Melody and New Arrangement by Yusuf Islam)
(featuring the Incwenga Voices)

La, La, La, La,
La, La, La, La
Manje uhhambile
Ungishiyille
Inhliziya ibuhlungu (x 2)

Lomhlaba unzima (x 2)
Oh, bana, bana, it’s a wild world
Hamba uqaphele
Take care, Take care
Lomhlaba unzima
Oh, bana, bana, it’s a wild world
Hamba uqaphele
Take care, Take care

You know I’ve seen what the world can do
And it’s breakin’ my heart in two,
Don’t be a bad
If you leave, take good care
I hope you make friends out there

Oh, bana, bana, it’s a wild world
It’s hard to get by just upon a smile
Oh, bana, bana, it’s a wild world
I’ll always remember you like a child,

La, La, La, La,
La, La, La, La
Manje uhhambile
Ungishiyille
Inhliziya ibuhlungu

But if you wanna leave, take good care
I hope you make a lot of nice friends out there
But just remember there’s a lot of bad and beware

Oh, bana, bana, it’s a wild world
It’s hard to get by just upon a smile
Oh, bana, bana, it’s a wild world
I’ll always remember you like a child,
Take Care, take care…
