(Sung in Swahili)

Oh, Jimmy Gait make it or make it
Kwa beat ya Jacky B (By Jacky B beats)
208 tulikosana, tukapigana, tukauana
(in 2008 we disagreed, we clashed, we killed each other)
Juu ya politicians Eh (Because of politicians)
Huu mwaka tumeamua, (This Year we have resolved)
Tumetia zi kupigana(x3) (To stop fighting each other x3)

Chorus:
Tunasema (We say)
No more fighting(x3)
No, no, no more fighting
No more fighting, no…
Hakuna marungu, marungu (x2) (No clubs, clubs)
Hakuna, hakuna (No, no)
Hakuna mapanga, mapanga (x2) (No machetes, machetes)
Hakuna, hakuna. Hiye (No,no)
[…] Chini […unclear..] down

Sisi wote mavijana tumeamua (As the youth we have resolved)
Toka leo hatutakubali kutumika (From now on we refuse to be used)
na politicians No way (By the politicians, no way)

(Chorus)

Mungu Baba tunaomba leo (Father God we pray today)
Tusaidie, tuishi kwa amani (Help us to live in peace)
Mungu baba tusaidie (Father God help us)
Ili sote tuungane kwa umoja (So that we join together)
Sisi ni wamoja (As we are one)

(Chorus)

Appointment Lyrics by Jimmy Gait ft Cece

(Sung in Swahili)

Siku moja nilikuwa na shida fulani (One day I had a problem)
Nikaona niombe usaidizi (I decided to ask for help)
Kwa bosi fulani rafiki yangu (To a certain man, who is my friend)
Tumejuana naye kwa muda mrefu (We’ve known each other for a long time)
Simu yake ilikuwa iko mteja (His phone was off)
Kwa hivyo nikaenda kwa ofisi yake (So I went to his office)
Nikaambiwa nitoe kitambulisho (I was asked to show my I.D.)
Na nikaangaliwa kama niko na bomu (And was searched for weapons)
Wakaniuliza kama nina appointment (Then they asked me if I had an appointment)
Nikasema sina huyo ni rafiki yangu (I said I don’t, He’s my friend)
So wakasema “No, huwezi ona bosi” (So they said, “No, you can’t see the boss,”)
“Ni lazima, ni lazima uwe na appointment” (“You must have an appointment”)

Chorus:
Asante Baba, (Thank you Father) I like your office
Hakuna appointment nahitaji (I don’t need an appointment)(repeat)
So any day, anytime, anywhere I go
I just knock, knock, knock. Naingia (And enter.)

Kwa ofisi yako, hakuna masoja (There are no guards in your office)
Hata sekretari pia hakunanga (There is also no secretary)
Hakunanga diary ati lazima tupange (There is no diary to arrange)
Any day, any time is a meeting time
Kwa hivyo, nikiwa na shida (So if I have an issue)
Siwezi ngoja nipate appointment (I don’t have to wait for an appointment)(repeat)

(Chorus)

So any day, anytime, anywhere I go
I just knock, knock, knock. Naingia (And enter.)

Furi furi dance, Furi furi dance ooh
Furi furi dance, Furi furi dance ooh
My life I give it to you, furi furi furi furi furi furi
My life I give it to you, furi furi furi furi furi furi
Furi Furi furi furi oh oh oh, Furi Furi furi furi oh oh oh

Kwa masoja napiga saluti, shika mike achilia ka binduki
Songa naye ndio maana hatuchoki, fanya vile utafanya kwake hatutoki
Waulize mi naye ni marafiki, sio Sunday tu kila siku ya wiki
NIko macho akirudi nisibaki, yaani right there ka card kwa Kibaki
Born again nacome na maswagger, Game tight nabaki nawachanganya
Just love kama track inakubamba, the devil every down nakushow ndio maana

My life I give it to you, furi furi furi furi furi furi
My life I give it to you, furi furi furi furi furi furi
Furi Furi furi furi oh oh oh,Furi Furi furi furi oh oh oh

Najiachilia kama mawe naanguka, Mungu tafadhali ona roho yasumbuka
Wananitesa wakisema sitafika, mpaka vizuizi wanaweka kwa njia wananicheka
Nasonga hata ka natetemeka, Mi huona wasee I told them si huleta
Sio siri Mungu wangu nakupenda, ukisema nitaenda we ongea sitalenga
Nangoja na sitazami kalenda, wananigonga lakini mi nawapenda
Niko na lengo yaani niko na agenda, Oh Mola wangu mbona mi wanilenga

Furi furi dance, Furi furi dance ooh
Furi furi dance, Furi furi dance ooh
My life I give it to you, furi furi furi furi furi furi
My life I give it to you, furi furi furi furi furi furi
Furi Furi furi furi oh oh oh, Furi Furi furi furi oh oh oh

The way you do the thing you do for me, nobody e go do that for me
When I fall you down you pick me up, nobody e go do that for me
See you love me when nobody does, nobody e go do that for me
You a go make my heart to go boom boom, You a go make my heart to go boom boom,
You a go make my heart to go boom boom, You a go make my heart to go boom boom,
You love me, you love me
Siko juu utanipata kwa magoti, Sifa tu utanipata kwa makofi
Sunday jumalipi mi sitoki, nikute tu na wenzangu kanisani mi sikosi

My life I give it to you, furi furi furi furi
My life I give it to you, furi furi furi furi
Furi Furi furi furi oh oh oh, Furi Furi furi furi oh oh oh
Furi Furi furi furi oh oh oh
Furi Furi furi furi oh oh oh
Furi Furi furi furi oh oh oh
Furi Furi furi furi oh oh oh
