A beautiful song I learned. . .

I learned an African song that I thought was sung in Swahili but it looks like it was not. It may have been written in another African language but I was wondering if anyone have heard of it and may know which language it was or what it means. All I know is that it has Baha'u'llah in it.

-Wei wei fumu
-Fwama ni wamba fumu
-Baha'u'llah a di fumu
-Mufu mumoon zulu
~A di wei wei oh!


I just hope that it is a good song and doesn't mean anything bad towards His Glory.

I know that there are many very beautiful African Baha'i songs with uplifting of the spirit.

Tried to run through Google translator, found nothing.

Maybe an African friend would know.

Here is another lovely song :-) I haven't as yet learnt it note from note though

Here is a little song I wrote
You might want to sing it note for note
Don't worry be happy
In every life we have some trouble
When you worry you make it double
Don't worry, be happy......

Ain't got no place to lay your head
Somebody came and took your bed
Don't worry, be happy
The land lord say your rent is late
He may have to litigate
Don't worry, be happy
Lood at me I am happy
Don't worry, be happy
Here I give you my phone number
When you worry call me
I make you happy
Don't worry, be happy
Ain't got no cash, ain't got no style
Ain't got not girl to make you smile
But don't worry be happy
Cause when you worry
Your face will frown
And that will bring everybody down
So don't worry, be happy (now).....

There is this little song I wrote
I hope you learn it note for note
Like good little children
Don't worry, be happy
Listen to what I say
In your life expect some trouble
But when you worry
You make it double
Don't worry, be happy......
Don't worry don't do it, be happy
Put a smile on your face
Don't bring everybody down like this
Don't worry, it will soon past
Whatever it is
Don't worry, be happy

It's got to be a Bantu language, not that it narrows it down much. I thought at first it might be Kikongo or Kituba, but there's so many tribe-based languages that look and sound very similar but are spoken by only a few thousand that it's almost impossible to guess. I looked at some Kikongo writings and compared them, as well as a few online dictionaries.

I think the spelling is incorrect, which may be throwing it all off. Wei wei should be "wewe," afaik, which means "you." "Fumu" might be "mfumu" which means chief or Lord. "Zulu," I think is "heaven."

Whatever it is word-for-word, I'm sure it's praising.
