Lyrics - Swahili
(Folk song from Kenya & Tanzania)
Wa mnazi, wa mnazi (repeat 3 times)
Watete.. watete.. watetemeka.
English Translation - Coconut tree branch
Branch (or straw), branch,
Of coconut, of coconut (repeat 3 times)
When the wind blows
It rattles.. and rattles.. and rattles.
Formation: Students stand in a circle holding hands.
Students circle around while singing. On “Ukipata upepo,” students go faster until the end, when they drop to the ground. (source)
