(o) walo ile babawa o - walo ile omon africa
(o) walo ile babawa o - walo ile omon africa

Hush now child, ale le and don't you cry, ale le go
Your folks might understand you, ale le
By and by, ale le go

Move on up

Towards your destination

But you may find

From time to time

Complications

Tche tche koule
Tche tche kofissa
Kofissa langa
Langa ti langa
Tche tche koule
Tche tche kofissa
Kofissa langa
Langa ti langa

(o) walo ile babawa o - walo ile omon africa
(o) walo ile babawa o - walo ile omon africa

Bite your lip, ale le and take a trip, ale le go
Though there may bewet road ahead, ale le
And you cannot slip, ale le go

Move on up

And peace you will find
Into the steeple

Of beautiful people

Where there's only one kind

Tche tche koule
Tche tche kofissa
Kofissa langa
Langa ti langa
Tche tche koule
Tche tche kofissa
Kofissa langa
Langa ti langa

So hush now child, ale le and don't you cry, ale le go
Your folks might understand you, ale le
By and by, ale le go

Move on up

And keep on wishing

Remember your dreams

Are your only schemes

So keep on pushing

Tche tche koule
Tche tche kofissa
Kofissa langa
Langa ti langa
Tche tche koule
Tche tche kofissa
Kofissa langa
Langa ti langa

(o) walo ile babawa o - walo ile omon africa
(o) walo ile babawa o - walo ile omon africa

Take nothing less, ale le but the second best, ale le go
Do not obey -you must keep your say, ale le
You can past the test, ale le go

Just move on up!
To a greater day

But just a little faith
If you put your mind to it

You can surely do it

Tche tche koule
Tche tche kofissa
Kofissa langa
Langa ti langa
Tche tche koule
Tche tche kofissa
Kofissa langa
Langa ti langa

(o) walo ile babawa o - walo ile omon africa
(o) walo ile babawa o - walo ile omon africa

Just move on up, we move on up, just move on up,
Watch out, we just move on up, we move on up, move up
