Adunni,let me be lost in your heart
For i listen not to the Hunter’s trumpet
Adunni,let me go astray in your thoughts
For i give unto you all that i bear.
Let us make a journey for the gods
And see them speaks into us
Let us grace the showcasing of our heritage
And let the dances feed our sight mightily.
Let us take a step into the rocky Ado-ekiti
And listen to ewi’s ewi at udiroko
Let’s take a walk at the feet of olosunta
And listen to the earthen therein.
Let’s mount our camel into ijebu land
And see how ojude oba goes
Let’s make a turn back to osun
And feel the valour of osun-osogbo festival.
let us branch at the Alaafin’s palace
And say hello to iku baba yeye
Ooni will be extremely gracious
To have us see the beautifulness of the Oduduwa staff.
Adunni let’s climb into fame and splendour
At the Mare festival at idanre
Let us chant the stanzas of olumo anthem
And view the world as it rotates.
