  1. Boul ma sene, boul ma guiss madi re nga fokni mane
    Khamouma li neka thi sama souf ak thi guinaw
    Beugouma kouma khol oaldine yaw li neka si yaw
    mo ne si man, li ne si mane moye dilene diapale

    °Neneh Cherry singing in English:

    Roughneck and rudeness,
    We should be using, on the ones who practiced wicked charms
    For the sword and the stone
    Bad to the bone
    Battle's not over
    Even when it's won
    And when a child is born into this world
    It has no concept
    Of the tone it's skin living in
    It's not a second
    7 seconds away
    Just as long as I stay
    I'll be waiting
    It's not a second
    7 seconds away
    Just as long as I stay
    I'll be waiting (x3)

    °Youssou N'Dour singing in French (Translated into English by "The SenSeï"):

    -j'assume les raisons qui nous poussent de changer tout,
    I assume the reasons that lead us to change everything,

    -J'aimerais qu'on oublie leur couleur pour qu'ils esperent
    I wish we could forget their color so they can hope

    -Beaucoup de sentiments de races qui font qu'ils desesperent
    lots of feelings for races which make them lose hope (despair)

    -Je veux les deux mains ouvertes,
    I want the two hands opened,

    -Des amis pour parler de leur peine, de leur joie
    (and) friends to talk about their sorrow, about their joy


    -Pour qu'ils leur filent des infos qui ne divisent pas
    so they can give'em infos that do not divide (scatter)

    -Changer
    change

    °Neneh Cherry as lead vocals henceforth;

    7 seconds away
    Just as long as I stay
    I'll be waiting
    It's not a second
    7 seconds away
    Just as long as I stay
    I'll be waiting (x3)
    And when a child is born into this world
    It has no concept
    Of the tone the skin it's living in
    And there's a million voices (x2)
    To tell you what you should be thinking
    So you better sober up for just a second
    We're 7 seconds away
    Just as long as I stay
    I'll be waiting
    It's not a second
    We're 7 seconds away
    For just as long as I stay
    I'll be waiting
    It's not a second
    7 seconds away
    Just as long as I stay
    I'll be waiting
