Ee fii henda: tappa i buka

Ee fii henda: J oo söötto
No(t)o(t) w’aa fu de panta-panta möö
U di i de otofasi, ta libi oto fasi

Ee fii henda: tide hen ta takki

Ee fii henda: tappa-tappa döö

Ta luku kino kuma fa u kë

Ee fii henda duumi ku lostu
Fu otowan na makki fan a ju hedi

Ee fii henda: njan andi i kë
Na un tin di i kë
Ma dee ta sikifi a kolanti

Ee fii henda: me a fu sabi andi mbe

Di mi abi ta peeta mi akki
Fu mbe i seei ko fii tu oo.
