Ndimanga nalo

I can run with it.

Kuti nabutuka nao


Ndingajumphe nalo

I can jump with it.

Kuti natoloka nao


Ndingavine nalo

I can dance with it.

Kuti nasha nao


Ndinganyaye nalo

I can swim with it.

Kuti na owa nao


Ndingasewere nalo

I can skip with it.

Kuti naciluka nao


Ndingamenye m’pira nalo

I can kick with it.

Kuti napanta nao


Ndingathawe nalo

I can escape with it.

Kuti naluba nao


Koma siningauluke nalo

But I can never fly with it.

Teti impupuke nao
