Mapembe Lyrics by Goodluck Gozbert ft Mfalme Alain

Leave a comment


(Sung in Swahili)

Sio mlevi anajiita mnywaji (He is not a drunk, yet he calls himself a drinker)
Sio mwizi anakusanya mtaji (He is not a thief, yet he collects bribes)

Alianza na kijana mzuri anawahi na kanisani (He started as a good man going to church)
Akisali ibada ya pili, anabaki hana jioni (Participating in the second service remaining until evening)
Ukimwona utamwita mtumishi (When you saw him you’d think he was the minister)
Hanywi pombe, kabisa ni mwana ya Nzambe (Does not drink, truly a son of God)
Ya dunia, ah, ah, anakataa na mikono miwili (Forfeiting what is of the world)
Akisema, ah ah, marafiki wote wanajua ni kweli (What he says, even his friends believe its true)
Sasa probleme hatujui ni nini (Now we don’t know what the problem is)
Hataki kabisa, hataki kanisa, amekuwa mcha pombe (He no longer wants the church, has become a believer of alcohol)

Amebadilika ameota mape-mapembe (He has changed, has grown horns)
Hashauriki, ameota mapembe (Cannot be counseled, has grown horns)
Amebadilika ameota mape-mapembe (Be has changed, has grown horns)

Wapi alipo, munielekeze? (Where is he? direct me to him)
Amefanana na yule malebo (He now looks like Malebo)
Suruali hapo, hapo (The way he wears his pants)
Nywele hapo, hapo (The way his hair is dressed)
Short skirt, hapo (The way her skirt is short)
Anamix pombe, hapo (The way he mixes his alcohol)
Tena anongeza kudanga hapo (The way he ?)
Mambo yote na hapo (All of his actions)

Ah rudisha, uhusiano wako na Mungu (Return to your relationship with God)
Urafiki wako, wako na Mungu (Your friendship with God)
Maisha unayoishi utaishianga motoni (The way you live now will result in hell)
Hauna rafiki wa kweli wako na sababu fulani (You do not have any true friends)
Oya badilika usifuge mape-mapembe (Change, so that you may not grow horns)
Wanakata mape-mapembe (The horns will be cut)
Tona usiinue ju, mape-mapembe (Careful do not raise the horns)
Eh joto, eh (You will end in hell)

Alikopa malamba mawili, ana madeni ya Muhimbili (He borrowed ?, but he has hospital debts)
Wakimshika watamchapa (When they catch him, he will be beaten)
Alikopa magwe pande, akishikwa ni rumande (He borrowed ?, if he’s caught he’ll be jailed)
Wakimshika watamchapa (When they catch him, they will beat him up)

Kila wewe, heh joto mwenyewe (Everyone has to choose hot for themselves)
Baridi mwenyewe, changua moja (Or cold for themselves, choose one)
Haueleweki, hauweleweki nani, hauweleweki (For now you cannot be understood)
Mipango, mipango imempita Bwana mipango (All the plans have passed the planner)
Anaenda shetani, aombewe (He is headed to the devil, he should be prayed for)
Ah majini, aombewe (To the demons, he should be prayed for)
Anatetemeka, aombewe (He is shaking, he should be prayed for)
Pesa zitamuua mtu, aombewe (Money will kill someone, he should be prayed for)
Anagaragara, aombewe (He is struggling, he should be prayed for)
Anatetemeka, aombewe (He is trembling, he should be prayed for)

Alikopa malamba mawili, ana madeni ya Muhimbili (He borrowed ?, but he has hospital debts)
Wakimshika watamchapa (When they catch him, he will be beaten)
Alikopa magwe pande, akishikwa ni rumande (He borrowed ?, if he’s caught he’ll be jailed)
Wakimshika watamchapa (When they catch him, they will beat him up)

(Sung in Swahili)

Refrain:
Wacha waone, wacha waone (Let them see, let them see)
Wacha waone, vile wewe ni ngome, Yesu (Let them see the way you are a Fortress)

Niko hapa kukuwakilisha, Yesu wangu (I am here to represent You, my Jesus)
Nataka waone vile ulivyo ngome kwangu (I want them to see the way You are my safe haven)
Tumetoka mbali, umenitoa mbali (We have come from far, You have brought me from far)
Ninaomba waone ulivyo mkubwa (I pray that they may see Your might)
Ulikonitoa  mimi najua (I know where You brought me from)
Ndio maana nasema, wewe ni mwamba (That is why I say, You are the Rock)
Sitarudi kule nilikotoka, niko na wewe (I will not return from whence I came, I am with you)
Kwangu ni mwamba (You are my Rock)
Uliko nivusha mimi najua (Where You brought me across, I know)
Ndio maana nasema, wewe ni mwamba (That is why I say, You are the Rock)
Kwa macho waone ulivyo Ili nao waelewe (Let them see with their eyes, that they may know)
Wewe ni ngome (That you are the fortress)
Kwa macho wakujue, nilie naye (With their eyes to know whom I am with)
Wao waseme kweli ni ngome (For them to confess that You are the fortress)

(Refrain)

Sibishani, sibishani na wabishi sugu (I do not argue with the stubborn)
Nisije nikasema; kakasirika Mungu (That I may speak out and anger God)
Sitetei sitetei, hali yangu ngumu (I do not defend my tough life)
Siunajua ukitenda, watatafutana huku (Because You know if You do it, they will look for You)
Eh Yahweh, sina wa kulinganisha na wewe (Oh Lord, I do not have anyone to compare to You)
Nashukuru shukuru shukuru Kyala (I am thankful to You)
Hata yale ulinitendea pasipo kuomba eh (Even to what you did for me without my prayer)
Ngome yangu ya siri: ni wewe Mungu (My secret fortress, is You, God)
Kuna vile unipigania nisiaibike eh (You fought for me, that I may be safe)

Utawale, utawale tu, utawale (Rule, rule over us)
Utawale, utawale tu, utawale (Rule over us)

(Refrain)

Katika vitu, katika watu (In all things, amongst all people)
Ukaniinua, nashukuru Yesu (You lifted me, thank You Jesus)
Katika vitu, katika watu (In all things, amongst all people)
Nikaheshimiwa, nashukuru Yesu (I have been respected, Thank You Jesus)

Repeat: Daida
Sasa najidaidai (Now I take pride)
Nafurahi rahi (I am joyful)
Asante (Thank you) (Repeat)
Nafurahi Leo (I am joyful today)
Najidai kwa Yesu (I take pride in Jesus)
Ninaendelea, ah (I continue)
Ninashangili ah (With my praise)
Kwa Baba, eh (To the Father)
Najidai, ah (I take pride)
Ninaringa kwa Baba (I take pride in the Father)
Nafurahi kwa Yahweh (I am joyful in Yahweh)

Repeat:
Jidhihirishe Mungu (Show yourself God)
Utukufu wako (In all Your Glory)
Ukitamalaki hapa, utatamalaki Bwana (Take authority Lord)

Yaani hapana dori, dori di — Mambo waka (There are no worries, things are great)
Nimevikwa na koti, koti ti, mambo super (I have been dressed with a coat, things are great)
Machozi yalinitoka, yalinitoka, yalinitoka (Tears rand down my face)
Mtesi alinitesa, alinitesa, alinitesa (The tormentor tormented me)

Nikifuta kushoto, hata kulia ya moto (If I clear the left, even the right is on fire)

Tena sio sifuri, nina majina majina (I have many names)
Siku hizi boss, ah mheshimiwa (These days I am a boss – the honorable)
Ametoa kibali, huku ni mambo sawa (He has brought me from far, all is fine here)
Siandamwi madeni, ameniponya Bwana (I do not owe anyone, the Lord has healed me)
Ni Yesu amefanya, sasa wasiwasi wa nini? (It is Jesus who has made me, what is there to fear?)
Na Mungu akitenda unabakia kileleni (When the Lord does it for you, you remain at the top)

Oga, oga, Baba I thank You
Umefanya ma (You have done) marvelous thing Lord I thank You
Oga oga, Jesus I thank You
Unenipa mihuri ya heshima, oh Baba(Father, You have given me stamps of respect)

Neno linasogea, kama mgambo (The Word is moving, like a ranger)
Mgambo hawajali, hali ya hewa (A ranger cares not for the weather)
Hata kama mvua hatua mbele (Even through the rain, a step forward)
Mgambo hawajali, huendelea (Rangers do not care, they keep moving)

Mungu Hapokei Rushwa (God Cannot be Bribed) Lyrics by Goodluck Gozbert

1 Comment


(Sung in Swahili)

Uzuri ni kwamba, Mungu hapokei rushwa x2
(The good news is that God cannot be bribed)
Angepewa mabilioni, tungetupwa mbali sana x2
(If that was so and he was given billions, we would have been abandoned)
(Repeat)

Na wengine tuna damu mbaya, mabifu kama yote
(Others have bad blood, looking for quarrels)
Mtu hujamkosea, anatamani ufe
(You have not wronged them, but they wish death on you)
Wengine bwana we, tulipewaga sura
(And others, were given looks)
Mtu akikukuona, akalinganisha hufanani
(Someone looks at you, and they compare you with others)
Wewe unadhani angepewa oxygene
(What do you think – if they were given oxygen)
Yangu angeminya, angeminya — nifie mbali
(My oxygen – they would have squeezed it, that I died)
Wewe unadhani angepewa kesho yako wee
(What do you think, if they were given your tomorrow)
Kwanza angefinya, angefinya — ufie mbali
(They would have squeezed it so that you died)

Pre-Refrain:
Ila mungu wee, hajui kukosea (But God does not wrong us)
Ametupa thamani, tulioitwa vikaragosi
(He has given us worth, us who are called cartoons)
Ila mungu wee, mwingi wa huruma
(For God is full of mercy)
Ametupa vicheko, vicheko bila manoti
(He has given us joy, joy without payment)

(Refrain)

Mfano jitu lipate lama za Laiza: lingetuchakaza vibaya
(For example, if someone gets Laiza’s fortune: they would have hurt us)
Au lipate kama za Dangote, Lipewe kuamua Kesho yako eeh
(Or they would be fortunate as Dangote, to judge your tomorrow)
Wengine, Baba zetu walala hoi (For some of us, our Fathers are needy)
Wengine, mama zetu hohehahe (For some of us, our mothers are poor)
Wengine, familia zetu choka mbaya (For some of us, our families are destitute)
Wengine, ndio kabisa mayatima (For some of us, we are complete orphans)
Hakuna anayetujua wala hatuna connection (There would be no one to give us connections)
Kusema sababu ni elimu mbona wasomi kibao ni jobless?
(Saying that it is because of lack of education, why are degree holders jobless?)
Tumewekwa Mahali kwa neema ya Mungu (We have been placed in the place of God’s Grace)
Tunavuka Mapito kwa neema ya Mungu (We have crossed through troubles through God’s Grace)

(Pre-Refrain)

(Refrain)

(Sung in Swahili)

Ufumo hauwezi kukusaidia (The structure will not help you)
Rafiki hawezi kukusaidia (Friends will not help you)
Mukuyu (?) hawezi kukusaidia (Practices(?) will not help you)
Mpenzi hawezi kukusaidia (Your lover will not help You)
Usheshindwa, yo hilo (You have been defeated by things)
Kwa mwanadamu hilo hilo (That is of the flesh)
Ulilete hilo, hilo (Bring them all)
Kwa Bwana Yesu, hilo hilo (To the Lord Jesus)
Amesema anatenda, umwamini (He said He will do it, believe Him)
Hajawai acha neno lipotee (He has never let His Word go in vain)
Alisema atatenda, nimeona (He said He will do it, and I’ve witnessed it)
Hajawahi shindwa kitu mfalme (The King has never been defeated)

Pre-Chorus:
Ndio yake moja, inabadilisha maisha (One yes from Him, changes lives)
Ndio yake moja, huleta amani (His one yes, brings peace)
Akisema sawa, utaheshimishwa (If He says yes, You will be respected)
Mwite tu, mwite tu, mwite tu (Just call Him, Just call Him, Just call Him)

Refrain:
Yupo mwenye majibu (The One with the answers is present)
Yeye asiye lala (The One who does not sleep)
Ndio, kwake ni ndio (Yes, in Him is Yes)
Hakuna, hakuna (Nothing, Nothing) (Repeat)

Kiti cha enzi, Kiti cha sifa (The Throne of authority, the Throne of praise)
Nyenyekea, utapata majibu (Humble yourself, You will receive your answers)
Kiti cha karne, zamani zote (The Throne of centuries, throne of ages)
Amini, amini, kuna jibu (Believe, believe, there is an answer)

Ameketi kwenye enzi (He is seated in authority)
Hakuna jambo gumu tena (There is nothing impossible again)
Kama afya, na uzima (Be it health, be it life)
Lolote, amini, amini (In everything, believe, believe)

Anajua maumivu (He knows the pain)
Anaona na machozi (He sees the tears)
Yeye ni Baba, yeye mlezi (He is the Father, He is the Caregiver)
Daima, daima, daima (Forever, forever forever)

(Pre-Chorus + Refrain)

Tunapoandamia, tegemea, egemea – Bwana (As we toil, as we trust, as we lean on)
Mbawani mwako ni salama, tena (We find shelter under Your wings, also)
Jemedari wa majeshi ya ushindi, ushinde lote (The General of the Army of Victory, conquer all)
Tutashinda kwa heshima tena (We shall be victorious in respect once again)

(Refrain)
