Djapana Wolutju
Dhurulama ngunhharrtji djapana
Djapana Warwu Galanggarri
Rripa ngunhawarrtji djapana
Warwu Golungnha

Look at the sun
Falling from the sky
And the sunsetTakes my mind
Back to my homeland
Far away

It's a story
Planted in my mind
It's so clear
I remember
Oh my
Oh my sunset dreaming

Wo Djapana
Wo warwu
Wo rramani
Wo galanggarri

Hey you people
Out there
How come you ain't fair
To the people of the land?
Try my
Try my sunset dreaming

Wo Djapana
Wo warwu
Wo rramani
Wo galanggarri

Djapana warwu
Djekulu dhurulangala
Wolutju warwu
Rripa Ngunhawarrtji
Dhurulama
Djapana warwu
Golungnha
Wo Djapana
Wo warwu
Wo rramani
Wo galanggarri

Hey you children
Of the land
Don't be fooled
By the Balanda ways

It will cause
Sorrow and woe
For our people
And our land

Wo Djapana
Wo warwu
Wo rramani
Wo galanggarri

So live it up
Live it up
Live it up
Live it up
Live it up
With sunset dreaming
