Verse 1:
Tarehe kama saba mwezi wa saba (A date like the seventh on the seventh month)
Miaka zimepita kumi na saba (Seventeen years have passed)
Humu duniani nishajipata (In this world where I have found myself)
Mimi, mimi, niko nilivyo (Iam, I am, the way I am)
Sina baba wala mi sina mama (I neither have a father nor a mother)
Siwezi enda mbali, mi najificha (I can’t go far, I hide myself)
Nachoka kujificha, najitokeza (I get tired of hiding, so I reveal myself)
Mimi, mimi, niko nilivyo  (Iam, I am, the way I am)
Nafunga virago vyangu, naenda mbali (I pack my belongings, I’m going far away)
Sijui nifanye nini, niende wapi (I don’t know what to do, where to go)
Nifuate nani mimi, nimwite nani (Whom do I follow? Who do I call?)
Mimi mimi niko nilivyo (Iam, I am, the way I am)
Sioni mbona nyinyi mwanikimbia (I don’t see why you run away from me)
Sioni mbona nyinyi mwanidharau (I don’t see why you despise me)
Sioni mbona nyinyi mwaniepuka (I don’t see why you turn away from me)
Mimi mimi niko nilivyo (I am the way I am)

Mbona? Mbona? Mbona? (Why? Why? Why?)
Mbona? Mbona? Mbona? (Why? Why? Why?)
Mbona? Ahh mbona? (repeat) Why? Ahh Why?

Verse 2: (Sung by Denno)
Wakati Mungu aliniumba (When God created me)
Alipanga mpango wake (He made his plans)
Kwamba mimi niwe jinsi nilivyo (That I should be the way I am)
Mbona, sasa hamnidhamini? (Why then don’t you value me?)
Mwaniona kama sifai (You look at me as if I am worthless)
Sikuchagua niwe jinsi nilivyo (I did not choose to be the way I am)
Nikitembea barabarani, macho mmenikazia (When I walk on the road, you stare at me)
Mbio mbio mwaniondokea, mimi ni kama nyinyi (You run away from me, while I’m just like you)

Verse 3:
Kwanini mwaniepuka, Na mimi ni kama tu wewe
Why do you run away from me, while I’m just like you
Na mimi ni kama tu wewe (While I’m just like you)
kwanini mwanidharau? kwanini mwanidharau?
Why do you despise me? Why do you despise me?
Na mimi ni kama tu wewe, Na mimi ni kama tu wewe
While I’m just like you, While I’m just like you
Kwanini wanikimbia? Kwanini wanikimbia?

Na mimi ni kama tu wewe, Na mimi ni kama tu wewe
While I’m just like you, while I’m just like you
Kwa nini? Kwa nini? (Why? Why?)
