Yothu Yindi – Matjala (Driftwood) lyrics

Gumatj, rirratjingu, nhina mala wanggany
Miyaman manikay, ngaraka maypurrumburr
Ngäthi miyaman, gunda rirraliny
Dhiyala nhina, mala wanggany, ma, ma, ma mätjala
Yumalil quywuyun, mittji rrakpala
Ngawayun ngäthi, liyawayma galupa
Mänha nhama, mawula-wulkthunara
Yarryarryunara, guniyirryirryunara, ma, ma, ma, mätjala
Gurrunhan bäpang, dhirrirri guymaliny
Nirrpunydja lunydju, waku mätjala
Gurrtjkurrtjunara, djopinggunhara gapala galupa, djeki ngarrariyal, ma, ma, ma mätjala
Walunydja yapinany, nguhanydja djarrawalu
Djäpana warwu
Lithara warjjapa
Niny'tjinydja garrumara
Bangayarri marpulul
Nhina ngilimurru
Mala wanggany ganyawu, ma, ma, ma mätjala
