What is Bono singing in SBS?

This is NOT a complaint, just a question:

I realised Bono is basically singing a new verse at the end of Bloody Sunday. Now I know he sometimes loves to make things up as they go along and sing stuff differently, but it seems that the new verse has been part of the shows since the tour began.

Has anyone figured out what he's singing? Or is it just random Bongolese?

Are you talking about the chanting part at the end?

It's the last verse of the song. He's singing something totally different there. Don't know if you could call it chanting. Sounds like very different lyrics to me. I like it, just wondering if someone has been able to make out what he's saying.

Sometimes my wit is a quick flash compilation of stuff from recent memory...this one was, in order

Jonathon Ross show skit + old Simpsons Popmart era episode + recently listening to Always in the car with my son who almost lost his Gatorade all over the dash when the song came to the last verses..
