My Country

My country is for love
So says its valleys
Where different colors and cultures
Combine to form Rainbow nation
Under the proud eye of birds
Adorning the sky

My country is for beauty
See the ancient rivers and dams
Flowing through beautiful peaks and mountains
Between the colorful landscapes and wetlands
Still shinning from sunrise to sunset
Like roses smiling for sun-rays

My country is for unity
Feel the millions, see their passion
Joining their hands on one song
Football, with their loud Vuvuzelas
Playing like symphony on our ears
With their joy hoping for only one thing
Nothing but soccer

My country is for joy
Feel it, the spirit of soccer
Rising like the morning mist
From the African soil
Where nations from all over the world
Will raise their hands and heads
To this prestigious event

My country, let's show the world
What is meant by ‘Proudly South Africans'
Let the world feel the spirit of Mzantsi
Welcome them to feel the African soil
Make them part of South African history
With their smiles flying high
Like our colorful Mzantsi flag

My country, this is our time
Our time to shine, our time to fly
We feel it, the spirit of love
The spirit of joy, the spirit of Ubuntu
What about the spirit of soccer
That unites the heats of millions
Say it! Unite Mzantsi Unite!
Feel It! It is here! !

    Something wrong. Extreme joy and extreme grief. Excess of everything is bad. Thanks
