Katy King Day

Katy King took me out yesterday to 9 bookstores. To meet managers and find copies of my just-released book.

The lyrics of the official World Cup Football song rang through my head the whole time:

You’re a good soldier

Choosing your battles

Pick yourself up

And dust yourself off

And back in the saddle

You’re on the frontline

Everyone’s watching

You know it’s serious

We’re getting closer

This isn’t over

The pressure is on

You feel it

But you’ve got it all

Believe it

When you fall get up

Oh oh…
And if you fall get up
Oh oh…

Tsamina mina
zangalewa

Cuz this is Africa

Tsamina mina eh eh

Waka Waka eh eh

Tsamina mina zangalewa

Anawa aa

This time for Africa

Listen to your god


This is our motto

Your time to shine

Don’t wait in line

Y vamos por Todo

People are raising

Their expectations

Go on and feed them

This is your moment

No hesitations

Today’s your day

I feel it

You paved the way

Believe it
If you get down

Get up

Oh oh…
When you get down

Get up eh eh…

Tsamina mina zangalewa

Anawa aa

This time for Africa

Tsamina mina eh eh

Waka Waka eh eh

Tsamina mina zangalewa

Anawa aa

Tsamina mina eh eh

Waka Waka eh eh

Tsamina mina zangalewa

This time for Africa
