Miriam Makeba lyrics translation

Try as I might, I simply cannot find any translation for Miriam Makeba's song "Pata Pata." Hopefully there are some Xhosa speakers in here who can help me out!

Here are the two Xhosa lines that she repeats. There are many versions out there in the Intertubes, so I just picked this one randomly:

Saguquga sathi bega nantsi Pata Pata

Hiyo mama hiyo ma nantsi Pata Pata



Thanks in advance!
