RETURN THE BRIDE PRICE

Screenshot_2016-06-30-19-18-21-1
Fellow kinsmen
We have not come to quarrel
We are still keeping peace
Peace that our forefathers fought for
Peace that Ramogi proclaimed
Peace that prevailed on wedding day
But we have one word to say
And will be enough for today
Please return the bride price
Your daughter is not ready to stay

Men from the royal family
We respect you greatly
We have visited you today
Without giving you a word
Meaning something has gone a stray
We wont share local brew today
We wont listen to traditional music
We are on our way
Please return the bride price
Your daughter has rejected our ways

Respected in-laws
Under this tree we sat
On the day we brought dowry
Chatting and laughing happily
Eating and drinking heavily
Under the same tree we sit today
Demanding our dowry
Your daughter has neglected our family

Atuech Nyarkisumo
For her we paid dowry through the nose
Thirty cattle plus goats and horse
She has defied our rules
Atuech has fought mother in-law
We have been patient enough
Till enough is now enough
And here we have come
To take back our dowry
We can’t tame your daughter

Jokanyanam
We are still keeping peace
Peace that Oluanda Magere brought
Stiffen not your neck
Please take us to the lake
We take our cattle back
Before it is dark
We still wish her good luck
Return our bride price
And take your daughter back

*Jokanyanam means people from the lakeside
*Nyarkisumo means a lady from Kisumu
