Minishirii

 

Translation: Zelealem Aberra Tesfa

O, Minishiri, a flute, at fingers touch,
Like a hawk you snatch
O, Minishiri; diarrhoea you cause
Where is your father’s house?
So I could pay your remaining price.
On the Sun of Friday morning
You drank blood bowing
As if of thirst you were dying;
Then you leaned on me getting up
As if your back got a sudden snap.
The one who made Minishiri
Is he a short or a tall man?
The one who sold you away, in fact
Is he wise or an ignoramus arrant?
I shall never sell you away, for my part,
I shall carry you to all heroes’ domain and strife
Above all, I love you more than my life.

Minishiri ulullee,
Yaa buttuu akka culullee
Minishiri yaa abbaa xeensaa
Manni abbaa keetii eessaa?
Haftuu birrii keen geessaa.
Aduu, barii Jimaataa
Gadi jettee biluu dhugde
Akka waan dheebuun duute;
Ol jettee natti irkatte
Akka waan dugdaa cittee.
Namni minishirii tume
Dheeraamoo gabaabaa dhaa?
Namumti si gurgure
Beekaamoo wallaalaa dhaa?
Ani du’ulle sin gurguru
Gurmuu gootaan si baadha
Lubbuu koorran si jaaldha
