kora nyinjanning, geeta nyinjanning, again they are kissing, now they are kissing,
kaaro nyinjanning, again they are kissing,

kowan burrongin, laughing I carry them,
bookala nyundeering, from the backs (of the ranges) lying,
kowan burrongin, laughing we carry them,
balgu-ka ngundeering, black boy tops lying,
kowan burrongin, floating we carry them,
milgural ngundeering, in the 'cups ' of leaves lying,
kowan burrongin, floating we carry them,

yowlera kwajjanbi bom bom daneetch, yowlera kwajjanbi gnaanungeetch, loud sounding waves waiting for returning ones,
weerilya kwajjanbi gnaanungeetch, the sea breeze coming inshore (waves) wait for returning ones,
yowlera kwajjanbi bom bom daneetch, loud sounding, coming inshore hitting wer striking each other.

yoggalamillinyunga yoggala nyeerimbala,
yoggala goorbilyunga yoggala alleejerum,
yanda yanda gujja boma durding,
boma burding domd burding.
my little spears I'll throw at the eastern 'long noses',
my little spears at the eastern 'long noses' I'll throw,
my little spears wer my boomerangs will strike wer cut,
my boomerangs strike, wer cut them.
meelinyup women nyeerimba women,
goorbilup women wer northern women,
we will yennar pick yira wanna wer strike hard in the battle,
and strike hard,
strike home in the fight.

Each woman would shout insults at the others wer the fight would stop only when keny of the women fell unconscious from a blow of the wanna.[4]
