Lala salama, Baba!

The invincible,

The unconquerable,

The unbeatable,

The unassailable,

The impregnable,

The invulnerable,

The unsurpassable,

The unshakeable,

The indefatigable,

The indomitable Madiba!


They tried to bend you but you were unyielding,

They tried to crush you but you were unbending,

They tried to shake you but you were unflinching,

The stout-hearted,

The lionhearted,

The strong-willed,

The strong-minded,

The determined.


Chained you freed us


Your light will shine on

Your rainbow will live on

Your Madiba magic will stay on

Forever we will celebrate your life

Forever we will celebrate you

Fearless and dauntless

The courageous Madiba!


The gentle,

The merciful,

The compassionate,

The humane,

The benevolent,

The lenient,

The forbearing,

The sympathetic,

The magnanimous,

The forgiving Madiba!


We are okay now tata

We have crossed over

You can go now baba


Go son of Azania

Go son of Africa

Go son of the soil


Hambe khale, tata Madiba!

Lala salama, baba Rolihlahla Mandela!
