Track Name: Woods of Solitude
Na tamboli na butu
Kasi na moni te
Na lamuki na tongo
Makambo ebongwami
Liloba ya Nzambe
Ngai na yoki te
Kasi bopengwami
Ngai na lingi te

Ba koloba ba kosala

Moto makasi pe eleki nga
Ata bo boyi, ngai na kotika te
Limbisa nga moninga, soki na lingi te
Kolanda nzela wana bo ponaki

Ba koloba ba kosala
Bango ba bengi yawe
Na bo kotita mokili yawe
Je vous en supplie
Botika ngai eh eh

Mokobo moyindo
Kasi bongo moyindo te
Ya nga motema eyebi nzela
Nayebi na nga makambo ya mokili te
Manso na kosala bo tia nga tembe te
Nayebi ata na pasi na kozala n’elikya
Lokumu ya mokili eza na suka te
Limbisa nga moninga, soki na lingi te
Kolanda nzela wana bo ponaki

Ba koloba ba kosala
Bango ba bengi yawe
Na bo kotita mokili yawe
Je vous en supplie
Botika ngai eh eh
Track Name: La La Love (feat. Kae Sun & Tanyaradzwa)
Gara neni mudiwa
Ndoda iwe chete

Tongo butu pokwa
Motema na nga eponi se yo
Tongo butu pokwa
Ba ndoto na nga eza se ya yo

Basala ba zuwa, bayina ko yina
Balingi na tika, na kotika te
Basala ba zuwa, bayina ko yina
Balingi na boya, na koboya te

Botika nga na vanda
Botika nga na linga
Nazwi ya nga motema
Nazwi ya nga moninga

I can tell you to go (x2)
But I want you to stay
I can tell you to go (x2)
But I want you to stay

There you go / La la love
The one I love / La la love
Can’t let you go / La la love
You that I want / La la love
La la la la / La la love

Someday I’ll swing by you
I’m not looking at your postcards, try to go the whole way with this
Try to go the long way
For love, love, la la
I’m not looking at your postcards, try to go the whole way with this
Try to go the long way

There you go / La la love
The one I love / La la love
Can’t let you go / La la love
You that I want

I can tell you to go (x2)
But I want you to stay
I can tell you to go (x2)
But I want you to stay

Na leli
Yoka ngai mawa
Na boyi
Otika ngai awa

There you go / La la love
The one I love / La la love
Can’t let you go / La la love
You that I want
Track Name: Sexus Plexus Nexus
Na koloba na yo, nako yebisa yo
Nako kabela yo, motema na ngai

Pesa nga bisou
Moke sur le cou
Un french un peu fou
Le monde est à nous

Fais-moi des bisous
C’est bien qu’on s’en fout
Des câlins partout
Le monde est à nous

Na koloba na yo, nako yebisa yo
Nako kabela yo, motema na ngai

Sexus Plexus Nexus, we can do it all night
Sexus Plexus Nexus, we’re gonna make it all right

Na koloba na yo, nako yebisa yo
Nako kabela yo, motema na ngai

Bisous, on s’en fout
Vas-y tire un coup
Là-bas tout en dessous
Le monde est à nous

Simba nga awa
Mokusa moke
Tia nga mwa tendresse
Lembisa nzoto
Na lala moke
Na maboko na yo

Sexus Plexus Nexus, we can do it all night
Sexus Plexus Nexus, we’re gonna make it all right

Simba nga awa
Mokusa moke
Tia nga mwa tendresse
Lembisa nzoto
Na lala moke
Na maboko na yo
Track Name: Tuba Tuba
Bako loba bako yemba
Sango na Kin
Kwenders aye lelo makasi
Bango bakimi

Soki likambo na ngai
Tika kotongoko ngai
Kuna esika bozali
Yeba y nga
Likambo na moto te te te

Likambo na moto te te te (x7)
Likambo na moto te

Tu parles trop
Tu dis mots qui trompent
Tu rêves trop
Tu vis la vie en rose
Rien de trop que tes propres mensonges
La vérité te semble parfois trop
Arrête (x3)
Arrête de mentir
Vas-y arrête, arrête, arrête
Arrête de mentir
Arrête

Soki likambo na ngai
Tika kotongoko ngai
Kuna esika bozali
Yeba y nga
Likambo na moto te te te (x8)

Likambo na moto te te te (x8)
Likambo na moto te

Songi songi eleka yo
Tuba tuba eleka yo
Tika biloba loba
Mama e

Likambo na moto te te te (x8)
Likambo na moto te
