lyrics

Alinha mbubo Dinhogonma
Kafata Soncoluma
Nhogon Sabá Sabá
Mansaiakurro Omanhe
Alié Massaia Di Mimá
Kumana Fonhalon
Imaje Ite Malula De
Imaje Ite Salilamome
Imaje Ite Hinala De
Imaje Ite Silannha Monha


Vamos dar as mãos um ao outro
Deixar o desentendimento
O desentendimento por causa do poder
Não podemos continuar assim!
Deixai o poder para quem o povo destinou
Tem de haver diálogo para cessar os conflitos
As pessoas que fazem os conflitos deviam ter vergonha
Sequer rezam para o bem estar de um país
Sequer têm pena do povo
Sequer têm consciência por provocar tanto sofrimento


Let us join hands to each other
Leave the disagreement
The disagreement because of power
We cannot go on like this!
Let the power to whom the people assigned
There must be dialogue to end conflict
People who make the conflicts should be ashamed
Even pray for the well being of a country
Even feel sorry for the people
Even aware for causing so much suffering
