Swahili question: hi,
There's a song in Swahili that I'm trying to figure out a phrase of. (it's the theme song of the Civ IV computer game; a variation of the Lord's Prayer.) At one point near the end, it sounds like the singer says, "see moh moo lay hey" (spelled phonetically, for English). There might be an extra syllable after "lay", or he might just be holding that note out or saying "hey" twice. Could anyone tell me what this might mean? Sorry I don't know how to spell it in Swahili.

yeah, I saw those lyrics, but they say that phrase I mentioned is "simama mwehu", which translates as "stand up, crazy man". This is most likely an error, since it's in the middle of a prayer. I was wondering if there were any other possibilities as to what the singer is actually saying, since I haven't found any alternative lyrics.
