Kudala ngibona ngiphila kanje
Kungenxa yothando lwakhe
Mehlo am avuliwe
Ndlebe zam zimamele
Mlomo yam uthetha naye thetha nayee
Nguye yedwa ×2
Awuvhuth umlilo namalangave
Awuvuth umlilo nangu lomlilo ×4
Nangu lomlilo lilo lilo lilo lilo
Lomlilo lilo lilo lilo lilo lilo lilo ×2
Dali mina ngsukumi shosha
Nentando yakho abangaboni sebeyobona
Mina ngeke ngwazi ukfakazela umunyu umuntu
Kodwa uthando lwakho mina ngzosthela abaningi
Nangu lomlilo lilo lilo lilo lilo lilo
Lomlilo lilo lilo lilo lilo lilo
