Walanēri Warūnga Banggliga
Walanja Walanja Walanja
Djedjembēn Walanēri Warūnga

Gūgarra Djedjembēn Nadaji

Yallumba Būrajāh Banggliga
 
Children swimming in the Shoalhaven River
Swim swim swim
Children laughing, playing
Swim swim swim
Come Kookaburra laughing
Quick quick quick
Come back to Shoalhaven River tomorrow
