So let's see.. I know the lyrics to songs in English, Welsh, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Swedish.. Obviously the next logical step simply must be Swahili...

CHORUS
Baba yetu, Yesu uliye
Mbinguni yetu, Yesu, amina!
Baba yetu, Yesu, uliye
Jina lako litukuzwe.
(x2)

Utupe leo chakula chetu
Tunachohitaji utusamehe
Makosa yetu, hey!
Kama nasi tunavyowasamehe
Waliotukosea usitutie
Katika majaribu, lakini
Utuokoe, na yule, milelea milele!

CHORUS

Ufalme wako ufike utakalo
Lifanyike duniani kama mbinguni. (Amina)

CHORUS

Utupe leo chakula chetu
Tunachohitaji utusamehe
Makosa yetu, hey!
Kama nasi tunavyowasamehe
Waliotukosea usitutie
Katika majaribu, lakini
Utuokoe, na yule, simama mwehu

Baba yetu, Yesu, uliye
Jina lako litukuzwe.
(x2)

The truly geeky among you may note that this music forms the introduction to Civilisation 4, but don't hold that against it.. It's a Swahili version of the Lord's prayer, from what I've been told, or something along those lines.. Certainly the word "Yesu" is probably Jesus, due to the capitalisation (and the fact that in Welsh it's Iesu, which makes it easier to spot)..

Not sure how easy this one will be though - the language is totally unfamiliar to me.. Still, should be fun :o)
