Dree Anthem
Ngunu tanii ka dree janda dukan kiine talyi,
dukan kiine talyi, dukan kiine talyi ya janda dukan kiine talyi ya...
Supun miilan ka henii hii alyi-oho mi aya dopa
Tachan tiyo mi pima yapa ke ngunu dree miidu nii
Niichi-niiti, tiini-diibo pa, hari-bula, diinii hija pa
dukan kiine talyi, dukan kiine talyi ya janda dukan kiine talyi ya....
Ayin hehin la Tanii butii hii ayapa dree miisa
Ayin dayin sa ngunu tanii ka hatii ganda....
Gantii yaso dodun kheko dopa ngunu dree miidu ya..
dukan kiine talyi, dukan kiine talyi ya janda dukan kiine talyi ya...
Danyi-piilo chikan pa janda doding dolo jaker he....
Ganda ahin mi aha puhe pa janda si hengi talyi ya..
dukan kiine talyi, dukan kiine talyi ya janda dukan kiine talyi ya
