The Owl




From: FOREIGN SECTION

We are indebted for this Baluba rhyme to Dr. and Mrs. William H.
Sheppard, pioneer missionaries under the Southern Presbyterian Church.
The little production comes from Congo, Africa.


Sala wa m[)e]n t[)e]nge, Cimpungelu.
Sala wa m[)e]n t[)e]nge, Cimpungelu.
Meme taya wewe, Cimpungelu.
Sala wa m[)e]n t[)e]nge, Cimpungelu.

Translation

The dancing owl waves his spread tail feathers.
I'm the owl.
The dancing owl waves his spread tail feathers.
I'm the owl.
I now tell you by my dancing, I'm the owl.
The dancing owl waves his spread tail feathers.
I'm the owl.
