Inside #Somalia’s protest songs : ‘Maxaa luray naftaadii’ (1967) Lyrics.

Innagoo lamaane ah
Iyo laba naf qaybsi leh
talo geed ku laashee,
Adigaa is lumiyoo,
Isu loogay cadawgoo,
Libintaada siiyee,
Waadiganse liitee,
Leexadu ku sidatee,
Hadba laan cuskanayee,

Liibaanteed aduunyada
Ruuxna laasan maayee
Maxaa luray naftaadii?

Waa laac Aduunyadu,
Labadii Walaalo ah,
Midba maalin ladanyahoo,
Ruuxii u liil Galay,
Lama loolo dharagoo,
Lugooyaba mageystee,

Waa adigasan laabtiyo,
Lugaha isla waayee,
Meel sare lalmanayee,

Liibaanteeda, aduunyada
Ruuxna laasan maayee,
Maxaa lulay naftaadii?

Adiguba laf iyo jiidh
Waadigii idlaadee,
liqiwaayey oontee,
Adiga liscaanood
iyo Laas xareediyo,
Laydh iyo hadh diidee.

Waadiganse sidii liig
Laasimay ugaadhee,
Waaqlada u leexdee,

Liibaanteed aduunyada
Ruuxna laasan maayee
Maxaa lulay naftaadii.

Dhaaxaad ladnaan Rays,
Sidaad aar libaax tahay,
Talaabada ladhaysoo,
Anna lahashadaadiyo,
Ladiwaayey jiifoo,
Liidnimo i-raacdee,
Lalabaha habeenkiyo,
Ma libdhaan jacaylku,
Ruux uu laba dibleeyaa.

Liibaanteed aduunyada
Ruuxna laasan maayee
Maxaa lulay naftaadii?
