Swahili to english translation, please ?

November 28, 2008 by  

This is a song my little daughter learned from a movie, about three years ago, and she still sings it at bedtime sometimes, she uses it as a lullaby for her dolls, She’s only five yr old, but has a very good memory, and retention skills.

The sound of it is very calming and relaxing for her, that she insists that I sing fo her sometimes, But what bothers me is the fact that I don’t know what we are singing. I’m clueless about the meaning of this words:

” Imba wimbo wa upepo
wakati unajiwa na
Imba wimbo wa upepo
wakati ndoto tamu

Lala mpaka usiku uisheni
upepu wa usiku wimbo wakona
Wimbu Wangu Unendelea
Imba wimbo wa upepo
wakati unajiwa na
Imba wimbo wa upepo
wakati ndoto tamu

Lala mpaka usiku uisheni
upepu wa usiku wimbo wakona

Upepu wa usiku wimbo wakona

Unaendelea milele”

Can anybody help?

Thanks, I’ ts from the movie Mighty Joe Young, indeed.
For those who wonder, here’ s the song:

And here’ s Charlize Theron (the movie star) singing it.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QGZG4k5dFeI&feature=related
Still my personal favorite is the one with the African Choir.
It’s called Windsong :)

Sing a song
And for a moment
You will be visited by the wind

Sing a song
And for a moment
Dream sweetly of the wind

Sleep now until the night is dawn
The wind and the night song, they are there
However the song, my child, will go on forever.

Bye :)
