Waving Flag, la cancion oficial del mundial Sudafrica 2010

"Cuando sea grande me volvere mas fuerte y me llamaran libertar como una bandera ondeando"


Asi dice el estribillo de la cancion. Knaan, autor, es un somali nacido en la ciudad de Mogadiscio. A los 13 años de edad, él y su familia emigraron a Canada. Hoy es reconocido en todo el mundo por lo que transmiten las letras de sus canciones. Todas cargadas de orgullo por sus raices somalies y africanas.


Si quieren pueden buscar las grabaciones oficiales via Youtube, pero yo les dejo esta version acustica realizada en un estudio de radio. Tal vez no quedo tan "limpia", pero llega mucho mas.


Les dejo la letra:

When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a Waving Flag

When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a Waving Flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes back

Born to a throne, stronger than Rome
But Violent prone, poor people zone
But it’s my home, all I have known
Where I got grown, streets we would roam
But out of the darkness, I came the farthest
Among the hardest survival
Learn from these streets, it can be bleak
Except no defeat, surrender retreat

So we struggling, fighting to eat and
We wondering when we’ll be free
So we patiently wait, for that fateful day
It’s not far away, so for now we say

When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a Waving Flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes back

So many wars, settling scores
Bringing us promises, leaving us poor
I heard them say, love is the way
Love is the answer, that’s what they say,
But look how they treat us, make us believers
We fight their battles, then they deceive us
Try to control us, they couldn’t hold us
Cause we just move forward like Buffalo Soldiers

But we struggling, fighting to eat
And we wondering, when we’ll be free
So we patiently wait, for that faithful day
It’s not far away, but for now we say

When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a Waving Flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes back

When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a Waving Flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes back
