Lyrics

Plants and trees, roots and leaves need sweet water.
Birds and bees, chimpanzees need sweet water.

Sweet water. Sweet water. Sweet water. Sweet water.

Grab a cup and drink it up, oh, sweet water.
Jump in the tub, scrub a dub, oh, sweet water.

Sweet water. Sweet water. Sweet water. Sweet water.

Love the water like a mother. Love the water like a father.

Rain coming down giving the ground, oh, sweet water.
Jumping in puddles, blowing bubbles, oh, sweet water.

Sweet water. Sweet water. Sweet water. Sweet water.
Maza, maza ni luzingu. Maza, maza ni luzingu.

Plants and trees, roots and leaves need sweet water.
Birds and bees, chimpanzees need sweet water.

Sweet water. Sweet water. Sweet water. Sweet water.
Maza, maza ni luzingu. Maza, maza ni luzingu.
Love the water like a mother. Love the water like a father.
