Anangu kutju tjiluru
Ngultju palumpa wiyarringanyi

Pelura yurra kulini
Nyaaltjimpa na ankuku

Palura kutjupatu yultjanyi
Mani wiyarringkula

Nyaaltjimpana kulini
Nyaaltjimpana kulini

Ngayulu kutju watjil watjilpa
Parra ngaranyi

Manta ngaatja ngayuku tjamuku
nyaakutjunu ngayunya payini

Nyaakumpatjunu tjulanyi
Manta ngaatja tjamuku tjanampa

Nyaaltjimpana kulini
Nyaaltjimpana kulini

One aboriginal man is sad and lonely
His family are all finishing up

He is thinking ahead
"Where will I go?"

He is walking by himself
His money has run out

"What am I thinking?
What am I thinking?

I am sad and lonely,
Standing around by myself.

This land is my grandfather's,
Why are they hunting me away?

How come they grab and spoil?
This land is their grandfather's.

What am I thinking?
What am I thinking?"
