Orlando sent me this song, with the note: "This song we sing when something is hot (news, politics, etc.), but we also let you know how to act. So when something is up, yes it's hot news, but you just have to let it pass, and let the proper authorities take care of it!"
Fire (Burning), Fire (Burning)
Ta na unda
Ta na punda
Bashele ku awa, bashele ku awa
Fire (burning), Fire (burning)!
Where is it?
It's in town!
Fire hose* come, fire hose* come.
Throw water** on it, throw water on it.
Thanks and Acknowledgements
