Tem don rich for go; nartin nor dae for ever

Tem don rich for ask yu sef, watin yu don do for wi

Tem don rich for knack off,

En wi nor geh for ask watin yu don do

Yu woke go fallah yu, nor to wi go judge yu;

Ask yu sef, how yu don woke

Yu pillar go tell yu, if yu get considration;

Wi go only say ehkaboh, ehkuseh!

Ohdaworeh! Abayomi! Ohdaworeh! Foulahtong boy!

Ehkuseh for woke!

Nar tin pas rikishi en alakie!!

Wen nar yu broke di law fuss, en bring disorder Nex!

Wi nor get nartin for say pass:

Kusheh for woke, en ohdaworeh! God go wit yu!

If yu don do good, good go fallah yu,

But if yu don do bad nar bad go fallah yu!!

Di seed wae yu plant, nar im yu go reap;

Yu Na man wae don woke na orl den intanasional offis,

But insie yu na shark!
