Se karik

Se-karik hau  mak maromak
Hau sei tama ba Bush, Saddam, Powell nian laran.
Truka sira nian fuan ho labarik sira nian fuan…

Se-karik Mahatma Gandhi sei moris
Hau sei truka Bush, Saddam, Powell nian kakutak
Ho Mahatma Gandhi nian kakutak…

Se-karik hau bele hamosu mina-rai
Hau sei hamosu mina-rai
Iha White House nian sorin…

Se-karik hau bele hamaran mina-rai
Hau sei hamaran mina-rai iha Iraq
Ba fulan ida  nian laran….
Fo tempu ba Bush, Powell hodi hanoin  tan…

Se-karik hau mateklamar
Hau sei babeur Bush, Saddam, Powell
Sai tauk hare sira nian kilat rasik…

Se-karik hau bele halo milagre
Hau sei halo kilat nuklir…
Sai boneka ba labarik sira bele halimar…

Se-karik hau anzu
Hau sei fo  liras ba labarik sira houtu
Hodi semo
Wainhira  bomba tun iha Iraq…

If Only…
If I were God…
Bush, Saddam, Powell, I’d enter their bodies
And replace their hearts with a child’s…

If Mahatma Gandhi were alive
Bush, Saddam, Powell, I’d replace their spirits
With Mahatma Gandhi’s…

If I could create oil
I’d create it next to the soil
Where the White House toils…

If I could remove oil
I’d remove it from Iraq’s soil
For one month
To give Bush and Powel, more time to ponder…

If I were a ghost
Bush, Saddam, Powel, I’d frighten them
With the sight of their own weapons…

If I could perform a miracle
I’d turn nuclear bombs…
Into dolls for children to play…

If I were an angel
I’d give wings to every child
To fly…
When bombs fall in Iraq…
