The drop of life
What is it that only Mother Earth has?
Rocks are everywhere else
Fire is everywhere else
Air is everywhere else
But where else can you find water?
Only on INI Mother Earth oh!

N is for the Fish that came forth from water
I and I is for the two twins that breathe the air
I-man, I-woman is of all creation

This Earth is I-territory oh water
Only I-water can cool this sorching fire and heat comes
Only I-water can quench this dry thirst coming
Water I stand alone
Water I stand for all
Jah! Your voice is like the voice of many waters
The voice of the peoples are like the voice of Jah

Everyone uses I oh water
But I shall remain weak for I loose to gain
Everyone takes I for granted oh water
But I shall yet prove them all wrong like always
All wanna own I oh water
The drop of life
How can you own me?
INI shall keep making INI-Mother Earth fertile

Atonsuo Nyamaa, you are feared oh mystical water
Ofin and her husband Abankure called Ofin ni Abankure
You are beloved oh life giving water
Great Nile you give fertility to the barren dry desert oh water mother of civilization
Powerful Niger you provide for all of ya children Oh water

Peace N Love
