Yothu Yindi Djapana (Sunset Dreaming) Lyrics

Last updated: 07/27/2012 10:56:53 AM

Djäpana wlutju
Dhurulama ngunhawarrtji djäpana
Warwu galanggarri
Rripa ngunhawarrtji djäpana
Warwu golungnha

Look at the sun
Falling from the sky
And the sunset
Takes 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-o-o djäpana
Wo-o-o warwu
Wo-o-o rramani
Wo-o-o 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-o-o djäpana
Wo-o-o warwu
Wo-o-o rramani
Wo-o-o galanggarri

Djäppana warwu
Djekulu dhurulangala
Wlutju warwu
Rripa ngunhawarrtji
Dhurulama – dhurulama
Djäpana warwu golungnha

Wo-o-o djäpana
Wo-o-o warwu
Wo-o-o rramani
Wo-o-o 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 djäpana
Wo warwu
Wo rramani
Wo galanggarri

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