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