ARAIYE

Idamu oni pade e o

A imo asiko ni damu

E da

Kabiyesi olori akiyesi

Ton fera,

Ko ronti ola

Ori ki e je shon’fela

Iya’n bu omo re

Eyin ti oo gara te le

Ojo waju dey ba i ba i,

Omo no o rono ti e,

A imo asiko ni damu

Araiye, ore mi

Opolo itumo, ti’ awon mi

O kuuno

Dupe fun’Olorun araye e da.

Ti agogo orin ba le shee

Igbele fuun Oluwa

A dara ko tuun ro, ko ro

Sisi Egberaga

Baba Agbalagba

Mk Ojojo

Orita meta ni pada ti

Aje

Shekere ni iba di omoge

Igbale oko ofurufu omode

Bi e mi shen ro

Obirin lolorun Oba.
