Lyrics:

Serbian

Увек ми се тако јави
Ритам што ме дира
Једна зараза у глави
Али тада знам

Свима нама овај корак
Исти ритам свира
Плаво небо нам је правац
А планета стан

Да се споје разне боје
То је добар план

Хајде сада сви у глас
У ла-ла-ла-ла-ла
Заједно
У ла-ла-ла-ла-ла
Око целог света
У ла-ла-ла-ла-ла
Ми исти смо
Црни и жути, бели
Ко луд је да нас дели

Подигните у вис руке
Ко за љубав мари
Боље да нас има висе
То је добар знак

Онај који би да ћути
И да само квари
Не мозе нам ништа стварно
Није тако јак

Кад се споје разне боје
Отераће мрак

Хајде сада сви у глас
У ла-ла-ла-ла-ла
Заједно
У ла-ла-ла-ла-ла
Око целог света
У ла-ла-ла-ла-ла
Ми исти смо
Црни и жути, бели
Ко луд је да нас дели

English

U LA LA LA
(LET US SING TOGETHER)

A rhythm that appears
in my mind and in my ears
makes me feel I’m at home
and I know I’m not alone.

For the tapping of our feet
matches the cosmic beat.
The sky is our aim
and the Earth is our home.

Wouldn’t it be just swell
if we mix all colors well?

Let’s all sing together
U lalalalalalala
Together
U lalalala
Around the World
U lalalalala
Black and white are both the same
who makes a difference lost the game!
