Chorus translation
Today is today
Today is a joyful day

Mwasuze mutya abeyo mwe mwasuzemutya
Abalangira mwasuze mutya bambeja mwasuzemutya
Abolugave mwasuze mutya abengabi mwasuze mutya
abanyoro mwasuze mutya ndese kasuze katya

Bridge translation
How was your night my beloved over there how was your night
How did the princess sleep last night how did the princesses sleep last night
The Lugave clan how was your night
Ngabi clan how was your night
The Banyoro people how was your night
I came this morning with gifts and glad tidings

Oh I have been wandering, trying to find some peace of mind
Carrying the weight of dreams, yesterday’s behind
And I can ride a cloud, yes until I reach the light
Feel the sun hot on my face, my heart beating inside


Leo ni leo
Leo ni siku ya furaha
Leo ni leo
Leo ni siku ya furaha

Ondaba ntevunya face emwenya temuli vunya
Ebizibu byempisemu lufukunya natukako nokuyita obukunya
Yenga kiki ekintawanya kumbe sanyu lye nonya
Nawuga mpita mu gonya akasana ne kaka enkuba ne tonya
Ha kati empanga zetumanya ku kyalo ndi musajja walinya
Nawasa ne nalinya nava mulugabire nengula akalinya
Sikakalabanda mpulira esanyu lili elyomunda
Kamu kamu gwemuganda kamusogola ne kagusunda
Katulye kwezo semanda zeyasonda twejukanyemu
Bwetwayita awafunda nga tonanya ku lwendo tambula nga omuganda
Tambula nga omuganda akaliba akendo okalabira kumukonda

Verse translation
You watch me moving with the flow, face with a smile no wrinkles
I have been through a myriad of struggles, some left me feeling alone and naked
Looking back at all my suffering it was joy I was on the quest to find
I swam through a pit of crocodiles, the sun raged on me and the rain beat on me
But look at me now at a feast of many cocks, I am a man with a name and reputation
I married the finest of women, I have bought shoes for my weary bare feet
Soft sole not the wooden type
I feel the love and joy from within, it took growth and patience
As the saying goes, one plus one makes a bundle
Call the brewer and the server, let’s drink to life and good health
From the wealth Ssemanda saved
Let’s remind our selves of how we survived the thick and narrow
But before we take a sip off the gourd ladle
Lets pay respect to the ancestors like an authentic Muganda
Like an authentic Muganda you can tell what is going to be great by the good way it starts

Leo ni leo
Leo ni siku ya furaha
Leo ni leo
Leo ni siku ya furaha

Mwasuze mutya abeyo mwe mwasuzemutya
Abalangira mwasuze mutya bambeja mwasuzemutya
Abomusu mwasuze mutya abemamba mwasuze mutya
Abengo mwasuze mutya ndese kasuze katya
Abe mbogo mwasuze mutya ngonge mwe kilikitya
Abendiga mwasuzemutya akasimba mwedira ki?

When there’s nothing left to lose
And only joy to find
When invincible is how I feel
And I’ve opened up my mind
Hey!

Leo ni leo
Leo ni siku ya furaha
Leo ni leo
Leo ni siku ya furaha
