Stand up!

Bravo! Bravo!
Stand up! Stand up!
Stand up for your rights
Stand up for your dignity
Stand up, fight the might
Of the bully.
Tumedhalilishwa ya kutosha
Tumeonewa ya kutosha
Sasa basi, sasa basi
Tunataka mapinduzi
Turejeshe heshima zetu
Turudishe Utu wetu

Stand up!

Bravo! Bravo!
Stand up! Stand up!
Stand up for your rights
Stand up for your dignity
Stand up, fight the might
Of the bully.
Enough humiliation
Enough oppression
Enough is enough
Now we want a revolution
To regain our respect
To reclaim our humanity
