Lyrics

Lionesses:
Fatshe leso lea halalela (The land of our ancestors is holy)
Fatshe leso lea halalela

Nala:
Shadowland
The leaves have fallen
This shadowed land
This was our home
The river's dry
The ground has broken
So I must go
Now I must go
And where the journey may lead me
Let your prayers be my guide
I cannot stay here, my family
But I'll remember my pride

Lionesses / Nala:
Prideland / I have no choice
My land / I will find my way
Tear-stained / Lea halalela
Dry land
Take this / Take this prayer
With you / What lies out there
Fatshe leso / Lea halalela

Lionesses:
And where the journey may lead you
Let this prayer be your guide
Though it may take you so far away
Always remember your pride
Fatshe leso lea halalela
Fatshe leso lea halalela

Lionesses / Nala:
And where the journey may lead you / And where the journey may lead me
Let this prayer be your guide / Oh, the prayer will be my guide
Though it may take you so far away / Though it may take me so far away
Always remember your pride / I'll remember my pride
And where the journey may lead you / Ngiza buyabo, ngiza buyabo (I will return)
Let this prayer be your guide / I will return, I will return
Beso bo (I will return)
Though it may take you so far away / Ngiza buyabo, I will return
Always remember your pride / Ngiza buyabo, oh Ngiza buyabo

Nala:
Beso bo, my people, beso bo
