TEXT

Fulani/Peul

TRANSLATION

English

Kamu balni balnugol buguedyi,

The sky deepens to the indigo of Guinea cloth,

Misso missi mitsugol biradam,

The mist bedews with a veil of fresh milk,

Fowru ulli, diko ladde dyaboke;

The hyena calls; the lion, king of the brush, responds;

Nden e danedyo weli gundidade.

It is the time to be murmuring with a lover.
