WE STROVE AND SURPASSED THEM

WE STROVE AND SURPASSED THEM

A ṢE’ṢE, A JÙ’WỌ́N LỌ NÁ A Yoruba Cultural Song

A’se’se, a ju’won lo na ooo,

A’se’se, a ju’won lo na;

A’se’se, a ju’won lo na ooo,

A’se’se, a ju’won lo na.

Igba irore ko to’kan soso aparo,

A’se’se, a ju’won lo na.

A’se’se, a ju’won lo na ooo,

A’se’se, a ju’won lo na;

A’se’se, a ju’won lo na ooo,

A’se’se a ju’won lo na.

Ebo ti ru; ebo ma ti gba ooo,

A’se’se, a ju’won lo na.

(ENGLISH TRANSLATION BY DELE AJAJA)

We strove and surpassed them,

We strove and surpassed them;

We strove and surpassed them,

We strove and surpassed them.

200 hummingbirds are not appreciable as a partridge,

We strove and surpassed them.

We strove and surpassed them,

We strove and surpassed them;

We strove and surpassed them,

We strove and surpassed them.

Sacrifices have materialized; offerings have been accepted,

We strove and surpassed them.
