Ngai ndakareka ukome mbirira-ini, utacaite uria wanacaithia ari angi;
Ngai ndakareka ukome mbirira-ini, uta ugite bu uria wanaugithia aria angi;
Undu uria utangienda gwikwo menya, ndukaneke mundu Ngai niarihanagiria.

    It may be my mother tongue but I cannot read it. Blame it on my upbringing in town. Please translate.

    Ngai, eti you don’t jua ur mother-tongue? šŸ™‚
    Title simply says “I luv this song.” First line loosely translated means “God won’t let u sleep in your grave till u groan d way u’ve made others groan.” Second line loosely means same thing, but this time round in the context of wailing. The last line invites the listener to live out the Judeo-Christian ethic of love (do unto others as you would like them to do unto you). Now, you must pay for those KYUK 101 refresher lessons! šŸ™‚ Thumunis please šŸ™‚

    It is always a pleasure to come across that language, which would be my children’s mothertongue in blogosphere.
