Ij iọkwe ḷọk aelōñ eo aō. -
I remember with nostalgia my island. [Song] [SM8]
|Ij iọkwe ḷọk aelōñ eo aō, ijo iar ḷotak ie, |
Meḷan ko ie, im iiaḷ ko ie, im iaieo ko ie,
Ij jāmin ilọk jāne, bwe ijo jikū eṃool,
Im aō ḷāṃorōn in deo, eṃṃan ḷọk ñe inaaj mej ie.
|I remember with nostalgia my island, the place where I was born, |
The surroundings there, the paths there, and the comings and goings there,
I will never leave it, because it is my rightful place,
And my heritage forever, it is best that I die there.
