Waka Waka (this time for Shakira)

Am I the only one who has no idea what the first line of the official World Cup song is?

Anyone who has ever learned a foreign language knows it is easier to fake good pronunciation while singing than while speaking.   And Shakira does ok singing in English, but…

“You’re a good soldier.”   I looked it up because after listening to it 10 times, I had no idea what she was saying.  Closer to “Hearing a junka.”  Even after reading the lyrics, I am not 100% sure they are right listening to her sing it.

Maybe it is not really worth remarking on, it just struck me as odd that no one told her, “Che, Shakira, you might want to re-record that first line.”
