Go Kenya Go!

Kenyans rocked the streets with over 400 dancers to show their support for Team Kenya at the London 2012 Olympics.

Not really a flashmob, but still...

 GO KENYA GO! And come home with all the gold!



The Song "Coming Home" by Nameless is becoming Kenya's unofficial national anthem. Here are the lyrics.

Intro
Narudi nyumbani, been around the world seen alot of things,
alot of things, au sio

Kenya at the Opening Ceremony of London 2012
Verse 1
I'm writing this letter
to my daughter
I wanted to tell her (I'm coming, coming home)

I'm writing this letter
to my daughter
I wanted to tell her (I'm coming, coming home)

but now I'm on a mission
to represent my nation
but now I'm on a mission
to get that victory
so switch on the TV
and hope that you see me
getting that victory
that will make you proud of me
I went out on the station
to represent my nation
I went out on the station
to get that victory
so switch on the TV
and hope that you see me
getting that victory
that will make you proud of me

Chorus
I'm coming home
home where I belong (whoo o o)
I'm coming home
home where I belong (whoo o o)

Narudi nyumbani, nyumbani
nyumbani, nyumbani
Narudi nyumbani, nyumbani
nyumbani, nyumbani

Verse 2
I have seen many things,
been many places
been round the world I have seen many faces
I've fought many fights
through the days, through the nights
through the journey
I realise
there's nothing better than la familia
there's nothing sweeter or more superior
than to know where you are from
and represent your home
so when you hear this song
I'm coming home

Chorus
I'm coming home
home where I belong (whoo o o)
I'm coming home
home where I belong (whoo o o)

Narudi nyumbani, nyumbani
nyumbani, nyumbani
Narudi nyumbani, nyumbani
nyumbani, nyumbani

Verse 3
check me out
up in the horizon
coming home, I am coming home
check me out
up in the horizon
coming home, I am coming home

narudi nyumbani, nyumbani
nyumbani, nyumbani
narudi nyumbani, nyumbani
nyumbani, nyumbani...

narudi nyumbani, nyumbani
nyumbani, nyumbani
narudi nyumbani, nyumbani
nyumbani, nyumbani...
(oh o o o ohh, mmh mmh hh)
