Kusasa, na kusasa, na kusasa,
Zintsuku zonke hambake gantsani,
Galesoskati, skati zo pelile;
Mazolo kanyisile masituta
Lapa ndlela file. Cima, kandlela!
Tina fana mtunzi yena
Hamba; mbongo yena kala munye
Ntsuku, mbaimbai tulisa.

Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow; a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more.

From: BOLD, J.D. 1990. Fanagalo : phrase-book - grammar - dictionary. Pretoria : Van Schaik. 90p. : Fanagalo
