Ooo, eee, oooo eee

Ngayuluna wangkangu kakana tjratjangkuta kuyani
(I am telling my big brother, “The grog is destroying you”)

Ngayuluna wangkangu kangkuruna ukirikunta kuyani
(I am telling my big sister,“the marijuana is destroying you.”)

Tjamu nuntupa kanila, kapali nuntupa kanila
(“Look after your Grandfather, look after your Grandmother”)

Nguranka kanila
(“Look after your country”)

Kunyi kunyi nguranka kanila kunyi
(“Poor old people need to be looked after at home.”)

Repeat song x 3
