Ne Bɛ A Tanu

Full Text

1 Ne bɛ a tanu, ne Kisibaa,
A ye ne dusu bɛɛ kuraya sa.
Ne kisilen bɛ nɛɛma de fɛ,
Ne b’a fɛ sisan k’a sago kɛ.

Refrain:
Ne bɛ a tanu ka beiti bɔ,
Ka a Kibaru Duman bɛɛ fɔ.
Ne bɛ a tanu ka beiti bɔ,
Ka a Kibaru Duman bɛɛ fɔ.

2 Ne bɛ a tanu, ne Kisibaa,
A ye ne dusu fa kanuya la.
A yɛrɛ kɛra saraka ye,
Kanuyaba don, oɲɔ’ɔn si tɛ. [Refrain]

3 Ne ye ne yɛrɛ ko bɛɛ dabila,
A ye ne dusu fa ɲagali la.
Sisan ne kɛra ciyɛntala ye,
Yesu ka nɛɛma n’a joli fɛ. [Refrain]
