SaRaha will sing “Kizunguzungu” in the third deltävling of Melodifestivalen 2016 in Norrköping. The song is written by Anderz Wrethov and SaRaha herself together with Arash, who represented Azerbaijan in Eurovision Song Contest 2009.

The song is sung partly in English and partly in Swahili. The song is about a situation, where you are wanting someone who is playing hard to get: “You run away you run away, whenever I get close, you run away you run away, what are you running for”.

Sara “Saraha” Larsson is debuting at Melodifestivalen this year. Previously she has had success in East Africa and just recently has been discovered by the Swedish radiostations aswell.

“Kizunguzungu” lyrics – SaRaha

You run away you run away
whenever I get close

You run away you run away
what are you running for

Baby why do you go
when I know you wanna stay
we tulia we tulia

We unakimbia we unakimbia
ila kaka najua najua unanitaka
bonna unakimbia we unakimbia

Sema why do you go
why do you go away
now hear me say

You give me Kizunguzungu we
wewe basi simama
uh we uh we

You give me Kizunguzungu we
wewe basi simama
uh we uh we

You give me you give me
you give me kizunguzungu

You give me you give me
you give me kizunguzungu

You give me Kizunguzungu we
wewe basi simama uh we uh we

You run away you run away
you can do better

You run away you run away
keep coming back for more

Baby why do you go
listen to what I say
we tulia we tulia

We unakimbia we unakimbia
ila kaka najua najua unanitaka
bonna unakimbia we unakimbia

Sema why do you go
why do you go away
now hear me say

You give me Kizunguzungu we
wewe basi simama

You give me Kizunguzungu we

You give me you give me

You give me you give me

Mabata mamata madogo

Mabata mamata madogo
