Lyrics - Mandinka

(Folk song from The Gambia)

Dawda Sanneh koloo bwtei
Koloo bwtei n’ta ben doonaa
Ninkynankoo binoo ba la
Binoo ba la n’te mo so la
Aii! eee aii eeoooww!

English Translation - Dawda Sanneh

Dawda Sanneh beat the drum.
When you beat the drum I will dance.
A dragon with horns,
But the horns will not touch you.
Aii! eee aii eeoooww!

Recorder Notes D, G, A, B, C, D’
