about

A caring husband heeds the message to return to his wife in a village ravaged by drought and hunger:
“I’ve heard your call; I am on my way.”

lyrics

Weche koro awinjo, wach koro awinjo oa pacho
Chieng mane warito chieng rieny twoyo chiemo
Koth mane warito koth ochung polo neno, nyoremo

Betty koro aduogo, Betty koro aayo kapango kanawinjo, pong
olingedala, mineringo chiro, nyithindo kwecho.

Betty gonasime, Betty koro wuoyo kawacho, piny otwo timo buru, mine chiro olal e gweng, chieng rieny aora otwo, tong ni dibed naonge to ditimango jabber yawa

Betty kech odonje dala ji yuak malit yawa

Kinde mane wapuro wayoro tho gokinyi, nyoremo
Ndalo mane wapuro wapuro a lot kawangweto, nyoremo
Kinde mane walao onger cham ochiek chiemo ne ngeny nyoremo.

Rao olal aora, gwen ringe edala
Jokwoge mayo ji endara
Betty kech obiro, nyithindwa neno

Mama na mama eh aweri
Baba na baba eh aweri
Sango dala, sango dala, sango e a weri
