“Haba Haba” lyrics — Stella Mwangi

Eurovision 2011 — Norway


When I’s a little girl my grandma told me
That I could be just anything I wanted to
When I’s a little girl my grandma told me
That I could be just anything I wanted to
She said that
Everything I work for
Everything I wish for
Everything I look for it is right in front of me
Everything I work for
Everything I wish for
Everything I look for it is right in front of me
And she said ah…

Haba, haba, hujaza kibaba
Haba, haba, hujaza kibaba
Haba, haba, hujaza kibaba
Haba, haba, hujaza kibaba

Hey, hey…
Hey, hey..

When I’s a little girl my grandma told me
That it’s the little things in life that’s gone make me happy
When I’s a little girl my grandma told me
That it’s the little thing in life that’s gone make me happy
She said that

Little by little
Fills up the measure
Don’t ever give up
Keep on moving
Little by little
Fills up the measure
Don’t ever give up
Keep on moving

Haba haba, hujaza kibaba
Haba haba, hujaza kibaba
Haba haba, hujaza kibaba
Haba haba, hujaza kibaba

Come on…

Haba haba, hujaza kibaba (sing it…)
Haba haba, hujaza kibaba
Haba haba, hujaza kibaba
Haba haba, hujaza kibaba

Note: In Swahili, “haba haba” means “little by little”; “hujaza kibaba” means “fills the measure”
