Nhananggu Yagu
My mother
Belong to me
Always told me
Walk tall and strong
Little Nyarlu me

Nhananggu Yagu
My mother
Belong to me
Always told me
Don’t be afraid
In any space
This land is old
Your ancestor’s spirits
Will protect you for
They remember all those
Who belong and
Come from it

Nhananggu Yagu
My mother
Belong to me
Now in that land
Her spirit watches
Over me
As I move around
On this our land


Note: nhanaggu yagu is a Wajarri word for ‘my mother’ and yagu is a Wajarri word for ‘mother’.
