Asuo atware kwan, Okwan atware asuo yi;
Opanyin ne hwane?
Ye bo kwan ko to asuo yi?
Asuo yi firi tete,
Asuo yi firi Odomankoma.
Oboo dee. Kronkron Tano,
Wo ko baabi a, bra,
Na ye hwe wo kwan.
The stream crosses the path, The path crosses the stream.
Which of them is the elder?
Did we not cut a path to go and meet this stream?
The stream had its origin long, long ago,
The stream had its origin in the Creator.
He created things, Pure, Pure Tano.
If you have gone elsewhere, come,
And we shall seek a path for you.
