I gaa ihu, i gaa azu dika Akpurukpu Inyi Amaechi Ede Oko
Gini mere onye hu ugbua isi ebuo ya
Ahu amakwa ya jijiji dika nwata huru agu n’ohia nku?
Gini mere i ji gbaa dimkpa dika agidigba Alakuku

Ugbawka o bu gini kwadara gi n’ala
Dika udara dabara n’ikpo nsi n’ime ajo ohia?
Udo adikwaghi n’etiti umu gi

Ihunanya ka ha tubara n’ime oke osimiri
Dika mpekere ihe ahaputara n’eze onye ubiam
