Mwalimu wetu hapendi keleleee,
anapenda nyimbo na vigelegele,
akivaa khanga inamsumbua
akivaa tenge mawingu ya mvua!
Our teacher hates noises
She loves songs and happy noises
Khangas* disturb her; yet when she puts on
Wrappers** the sky gets cloudy.
*Khangas are pieces of fabric of varying lengths, that can be worn as clothing in different ways, like a shawl, skirt or headcloth, or used as a sling for babies.
**Wrappers are dresses or skirts made by wrapping a piece of fabric around the body in a special way.
