What is this song?

Elliot has started preschool at an English-medium school where there seems to be a whole lot of Swahili going on. We’re not sure of the exact balance or how much he’ll pick up of what.

Since he started 2 or 3 weeks ago, we have been puzzling over the words to one of the songs he’s been singing. It sounds like it’s in English and yet some of it was unrecognisable to us. We worked it out eventually, at which point we realised he was singing it as he’s been taught – with a strong Tanzanian accent. Here’s the chorus. Can you work out what the words are?
