Chagua Umpendaye

 

Ni mwaka wa uchaguzi, chagua umpendae,
Uchague kwa ujuzi, na fujo uikatae,
Na ni wengi wagombezi, hongo pia ikatae,
Chagua umpendae.

Kampeni tangu majuzi, zinafanyika mchana,
Kuzunguka kuwa kazi, na ngoma kupigwa sana,
Wafuasi na wagombezi, mikono washashikana,
Chagua umpendae.

Tena kumbe siku hizi, vijana ni wengi sana,
Wanapokula mandizi, wanarukaruka sana,
Kutwa nzima kwao kazi, imepamba moto sana,
Chagua umpendae.

Vileo vyawekwa wazi, unaviona mchana,
Kuku na nyama za mbuzi, kwingi zimeliwa sana,
Pesa zatolewa wazi, vikundi vinagawana,
Chagua umpendae.

Pewa pesa kula mbuzi, imba na kuruka sana,
Halafu ukibalizi, fikiria tena sana,
Kura yako sio ndizi, ujue ina maana,
Chagua umpendae.

Mimi na wewe ni wazi, tuchague vyema sana,
Tuchague viongozi, walio na sifa sana,
Sifa nzuri na za wazi, walio na utu sana,
Chagua umpendae.
