A song that has become a kind of co-official anthem for the World Cup 2010. Here in the English-Arabic version, with gorgeous Lebanese singer Nancy Ajram :)

"Wavin' Flag" is a song by Somali-Canadian artist K'naan from his album Troubadour, reaching #2 on the Canadian Hot 100. A remake by a supergroup of Canadian artists, credited as Young Artists for Haiti, became a charity single, with this new version going straight to #1 on the Canadian charts. A version of the song featuring will.i.am  and David Guetta is targeted for international release. The song also appears on the soundtrack for the video games NBA 2K10  and 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa.

The song was chosen as Coca-Cola's promotional anthem for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, to be held in South Africa. The English version was released as "Wavin' Flag (The Celebration Mix)" by K'naan and many other bilingual and country-specific versions have been released. After the release of the Celebration Mix prior to the World Cup, "Wavin' Flag" reached number one in Germany, Switzerland, and Austria as well as number two in the United Kingdom, Canada, Italy and Ireland.

Ooooooh Wooooooh, Ooooooh Wooooooh
Give me freedom, give me fire, give me reason, take me higher
See the champions, take the field now, you define us, make us feel proud

Oul'lela alam oul we sam'ma
Di ahla forsa'shan netgama
We wettna fi lam'metna
Binheba ba'ad awi we benshagga

Tashgae'na egabii'aba
Tashgaa malyan bel'hob
Haseen en nena ahrar
Sawa hanshagga mel'alb


habibi,
Ta'rafla almak Hatla'eii helmak
Oum meddi edak
Shagga ba'alamak dah
Ba'alamak dah... ba'alamak dah...
Ba'alamak dah... ba'alamak


When I get older I will be stronger
They'll call me freedom
Just like the wavin' flag... so wave your flag
Now wave your flag! now wave your flag!
Woooh
Ooooooh Wooooooh, Ooooooh Wooooooh

Ahla farha ei'sana di
Kollo yhallil...Kollo ye'nadii
Kollo yeftan...Albo yehlam
Da mafeesh agmal mel lahazati


In the streets our heads are lifting, as we lose our inhibition
Celebration, it's around us, every nation, all around us

Singing forever young, singing songs underneath the sun
Let's rejoice in the beautiful game
And together at the end of the day
We all say....
Ta'rafla almak Hatla'eii helmak
Oum meddi edak
Shagga ba'alamak dah
Ba'alamak dah... ba'alamak dah...
Ba'alamak dah... ba'alamak


When I get older I will be stronger
They'll call me freedom
Just like the wavin' flag... now wave your flag
Now wave your flag ! now wave your flag !
Woooh
Ooooooh Wooooooh, Ooooooh Wooooooh

Habibi,
Ta'rafla almak Hatla'eii helmak
Oum meddi edak
Shagga ba'alamak dah


When I get older I will be stronger
They'll call me freedom
Just like the wavin' flag... so wave your flag
Now wave your flag! now wave your flag!
Now wave your flag!

Ba'alamak da... ba'alamak da...
Ba'alamak da... ba'alamak


Woooh
Ooooooh Wooooooh
And everybody will be singing it
Ooooooh Wooooooh
And we all will be singing it

Cut!
