The Speech of Our Language

Utterance without weight
Spoken with no emphasis
And all frivolous speech
Is the death of our language
Our speech is our heritage
The most intricate poetry
A song to make us dance
And a song to help us work
It's Heello and Buraanbur,
It's chorus and refrain
Syllables and music
Conversation and veneration
Threats and boasts
Riddles and tales
Stories and facts
Our speech is our heritage
Spoken by our ancestors
It's the wealth of our people
Our children's treasure-house
It's the lodestone of our culture
Utterly indispensible
The means of seeking assistance
