E Ia Sama Barra Ci

Djamana Te Diala Sene
Quela Coo Molu
Nin Sama Nata Malukura
Sorro Lá, Nin Sama Sirrá
Tiga Quero Be Sorrola
Nin Sama Nata Nho Kurra
Be Sorro
Nin Sama Barra Si
Mossu Nhema Be
Sorro La
Nin Sama Sira
Mali Kurra Be Sorro Lá
Nin Sama Sirra Tiga
Querelu Be Sorrola
Nin Sama Sirra Ani
Nhokurra Lu Be Sorro Lá
Alinhe Barra Barra Lé Nhonté
Nin Sama Sirra Ani Musso
Nhema Be Sorro Há Há


Quando chegam as chuvas
Os agricultores devem levantar-se para trabalhar
O país não avança sem agricultores
Quando chega a chuva trabalhemos para ter arroz
Ao trabalhar podemos ter amendoim
A terra também nos dá milho, trabalhemos para isso
A alimentação traz beleza nas mulheres
Quando chega o tempo certo, até com o milho novo
Podemos ter um bom alimento
Vamos trabalhar! Não há como o trabalho
O governo deve apoiar os agricultores


When the rains come
Farmers must get up for work
The country does not advance without farmers
When the rain comes we should work to have rice
Working we can have peanuts
The land also gives us corn, let us work for it
Food brings beauty in women
When the right time comes, even with the new corn
We can have a good food
Let's work! There is nothing like work
The government should support farmers
