MALATI ISIEN
(Gabaga Williams  Paranda)

 

Madayagua harabana luagu tirau noufuri (2 times)

Mabarase ba gia hau, mabarase ba gia hau
Luagu halugun heiginibu
Laduga heigadi gurigia (2 times)

Chorus:
Malati isien ganeiwa ruguti
Michiga ba purisima dan le misien ba
Malati isien ganeiwa ruguti
Malati dan le misien ba (2 times)

Au gufuruma badina
Luni hahuluchunina mutu luagu niduru (2 times)

Amuru haruguti, amuru hebenene
Buma hafurendera iweru
Larigien tagarida bun (2 times)

Chorus:

Numada rau wau mamada ba ya ubowagu
Tueidugien buguchu luma buguchili
Hagia rugubana bumadagu ubowagu
Ididie bei mutu le lun bei lagumuchu bau

Chorus

 

English Translation:

They have ganged up on my aunt’s daughter

Don’t worry about them

How they tried to eat you alive

For their love of human flesh

Love that is bought is worthless

Don’t extend a greeting where you are not loved

Love that is bought is worthless

It is useless when you are not loved.

I would gladly agree to be hanged for a crime I have committed

You are thier grandfather you are their godfather

They have learned from you now it hurts you.
