Umeshinda.

UMENISHINDA
Moyo unanipa tabu, husikii ‘ngakwambiya
Sijui utajitibu, matungu yangafikiya
Nawaza kukuadhibu, moyo ‘ningakufikiya
Yamekushinda ya damu, mengineyo wajitwika

Mshawishi wako mato, sifiti akutongeya
Likikupata fukuto, kamwe hatokaribiya
Yakikufika majuto, yeye atakimbiya
Yamekushinda ya damu, mengineyo wajitwika

Mato hayana paziya, yapepesa huku kule
Kwa haraka yakimbiya, uendako yapo mbele
Mabaya hukwegesheya, yateke ‘kipata ndwele
Yamekushinda ya damu, mengineyo wajitwika

Nakurai nisikiya, kwani huwezi tuliya
Pondo sitokutiliya, motoni ‘kitumbukiya
Yakikudirika haya, matozi utajiliya
Yamekushinda ya damu, mengineyo wajitwika

Mato haya hukumbonya, na weye ukapendezwa
Kisha ukajibambanya, hapo akili hubezwa
Wakanyi wangakukanya, nao hapo wangapuzwa
Yamekushinda ya damu, mengineyo wajitwika

Ulimi ukajongeya, matamu kukuteteya
Mahaba kukutakiya, chumvi utakutiliya
Tena utakusifiya, hisia kukutekeya
Yamekushinda ya damu, mengineyo wajitwika

Kiziwi hunisikii, sauti ‘ngakupaziya
Yani katu hunitii, upendako wajendeya
Tatizo hufikirii, litakalokutokeya
Yamekushinda ya damu, mengineyo wajitwika

Dunia itakufunda, nakwatiya ulimwengu
Mwanzoni nilikupenda, ‘kasaliti pendo langu
Moyo we’ umenishinda, nipunguziya matungu
Yamekushinda ya damu, mengineyo wajitwika.
