Chipolopolo - Poem by Peter Daniel Phiri

Unfortunately we will not retire,
Across Afrika, we continue to inspire,
With this African trophy,
Our national achievement;
The African glory.

I heard celebrations in Angola,
Then I heard them again in Malawi.
They went nuts in Zimbabwe,
It was thrilling in Mzansi;
In praise to Chipolopolo.

We hold the African title,
We are the champions.
It took a lot of struggle and plight,
But it was worth the fight.

A new dawn has come,
From dust, a new King sprouts,
Now Chipolopolo they shout!
