Dark, flawless complexion
The skin that attracts attention
Gorgeous! Beyond explanation
That's what makes a nation
All it takes to make a proud Kenyan

All green, hills and slopes of Kericho
The impressive sandy beaches
All round the lake Turkana
Turkana! Where beauties are made
That's what makes the nation
All it takes to be a proud kenyan

Behold! The beautiful untamed Mara
Where lions roam the wild
Where the Maasai jump so high
Higher than the great mountain, Kenya
That's what makes the nation
All it takes to make a proud Kenyan!

Picking shells as you watch the sun rise
At the Malindi white sand beach
The romantic orange sunset
At the vast lake Victoria
That's what makes the nation
All it takes to make a proud Kenyan.

The irresistible beauty of the Swahili
The delicious mursik of the Kalenjin
The rich culture of the Maasai
And the bubbly hearts of the Kenyan people
Is what makes the nation
All it takes to be a proud Kenyan!
