Yangairipano

Tirikungodzungaira.
Magitare anyarara.
Mhepo iya yapfura nepano,
yatonhodza nyika,
yashevedza mhere.

Nekwanga kwakanyarara,
zvanzi Nzou iripi?

Hapana angadaire,
Asi yangairipano,
tsoka dzayo dzizere,
nyika yose, dzizere,

Nzou yangairipano-
mashoko ayo
achiri kupoterera mumhepo,
achiri kusimudza makumbo,
achiri kunyaradza kuzhamba.

Yangairipano. Murikuiona. Murikuinzwa.
Iripano. Ichiripano. Mumweya.
Mimanzi. Magitare. Mhepo.
Iripano.
