Several commenters on the discussion thread for the video given as Example #2 below indicated that the lyrics: "Tout le monde majunda majuda majunda/Ayi majund tobina ya Yesu we" (The first three words) are in French and the remaining words are in Lingala, a Congolese language. The English translations for those lyrics is given in parenthesis.
