Mandinga, everyday
Mandinga, zaleilah lei

I feel the rhythm of your body touching me
The wind’s perfume kissing me
Feels so good when I’m with you
You touching me and kissing me makes me want to dance
I’m so happy, I can shout out loud

Zaleilah-leila-lei, everyday, everybody
When you love you say, everyday, everybody
Zaleilah-leila-lei, everyday, everybody
Zaleilah-leila-lei, zaleilah-leila-lei

Let me love you, let me love you forever
Never doubt that I’m here just for you
Come here, my sweet chocolate boy
Only you can make me feel the real love

Zaleilah-leila-lei, everyday, everybody
When you love you say, everyday, everybody
Zaleilah-leila-lei, everyday, everybody
Zaleilah-leila-lei, zaleilah-leila-lei

When you make me feel so special

Up! Up! Let’s go!

That’s right, that’s right!
Let’s go, let’s go!

When you love you say, everyday, everybody
Zaleilah-leila-lei, everyday, everybody
Zaleilah-leila-lei, zaleilah-leila-lei
