A Little Bit of Love Lyrics:

VERSE

I got a little something,

That I’d like to share with you yeah

It’s a little bit dark

A little bit cold and it’s hard to bear

Togwa mumatigga (Do not fall into temptation)

Otuke okwejjusa nga bwayita (And get to regret, when it’s too late)

Tokemebwa wama (Do not be tempted)

Fuba nyo okwewala (Try hard to avoid)

Pre Xrs:

If we could see

Past the pleasures of life

Then maybe we’d know

The real meaning of life

CHORUS x 2

A little bit of love

And a little bit of hope

A little bit of caution is all we need

A little bit wiser

A little bit smarter

Your heart’s been calling X 2

VERSE 2

When the heat is on

And your groove is on

When the light is green

Put your brakes on

Always be faithful

Use your protection

It will save a rainy day yeah yeah

Bwekuba  kulinda (if it means waiting)

Naddala abaato mumyaka temupapa (especially for you the young, don’t rush)

Ate mwe abafumbo mukuume obwesigwa (and you the married, stay faithful)

Pre Xrs

If we could see

Past the borders of life

Obulamu bubwo (Life is yours)

Fuba obukuume bulungi (Try to protect it well)

Bukuume (Protect it)

(REPEAT CHORUS x 2)

VERSE 3

Wulira omutima gwo (Listen to your heart)

Kyegugamba wama (And what it tells you)

Osobole okukyusa embeera yo (So that you can change your behavior)

This may seem harder each day we try

But as long as we fight it we can win

(REPEAT CHORUS x 2)

Bridge 2

Obulamu bwo bukuume (Keep your life safe)

Buno obulwadde buuta sibwa muzannyo (This disease is a killer, it’s not a joke)

Tomala gagenda, wekuume (Do not just go, keep yourself safe)

Bulamu bwo bukuume (Keep your life safe)

Buno obulwadde buuta sibwa muzannyo (This disease is a killer, it’s not a joke)

Tomala gagenda, wekuume (Do not just go, keep yourself safe)

Tomala gagenda (Do not just go)

RAP 1

Yo! AIDS is real,

Something that we all can feel

United as one against the disease

Is the way we all can win

So join forces

Be a part of the world wide AIDS Vaccine Research team

You heard me

RAP 2

One time Walter Reed came to the scene

Came to fight this killing disease

Use your brain do not take on the risk

Clear your life from the rest

If you are careless with it, you know

RAP 3

Twandibadde tukola namanyi (We would be working tirelessly)

Nga tetwebaka buli lunaku (Spending sleepless nights every day)

Nga twetala (Moving here and there)

Bulamu bwa kakyo kano (Life these days)

Bufusse bwansozi (Has become like an uphill task)

Obulamu busana magezi (Life needs wisdom)

We need to pray

RAP 4

If you’re lonely

You get some love

You never know this world

Could get out of control

Keep on searching

And find some love

Find some love

Just a little bit

A little bit of love

Bangi bagenze

Just a little bit

Little bit of Hope…
