Gurtha maynmak, gurtha yati
Bili ngayi nguli wanganha yatjuma
Wiri buntja ngayi maynmak mirithirri
Mari ga mumu ngandi ga bapa
Nguili bitjanbili nyina gurthamirringura
Walangu maybnmak mirithirri
Balanda mala nguli warwugyun
Wiribuyntja walala nguli


(Luritja chorus – Gumatji verse)

Is fire good? Is fire bad?
Because it destroys the home and the country?
But sometimes this may be good.
Grandfather, grandmother, mother and father
have always used and been dependent on fire.
For them it is very important.

White people are concerned about bushfires and
are quick to work together to put them out.
