Gogogoi

Svikai svikai kani,
Titambire mwauya kwedu,
Hekani matenga hekani,
Tatsikwa ndihombarume,
Tisingafungire chokwadi,
Tibate, mwauya-a!

Bereka gumbo chikomana,
Paseri pechikomo kurumidza,
Baba pavarikuturika mikoko,
Vauye zvino mutungamidzane,
Uti sekuru vauya kubva kanyi,
Nehomwe izere gogoya.

Chimhandara isa huni pamoto,
Shambakodzi uzadze kuti tundu,
Ukuchidzire ikurumidze kuvira,
Ichidziya ubate jongwe riya guru,
Wotora katende kehupfu hwerukweza,
Ukasike sekuru ndofunga yoruma.

Kubva wagara mutonono vakomana,
Chibuda panze utambe nevamwe,
Sekuru vagare pachigaramakomucha,
Vachinyatsoti tende vature befu,
Uvape komichi vatonhodze moyo,
Kwavabva chinhambwe handipano.

Zviri kumbofamba sei chisikana,
Mumba macho zvairi mhute yegayega,
Huni inyoro here maita hutsi kudai,
Zvauri kuti bari bari furidza nesimba,
Rega kuti fendekete gara zvine mwero,
Ndati nditaure kuziva mbuya huudzwa.

Garai sekuru garai zvenyu,
Bvisai bhachi rinoti nejiho piriwiri,
Mabasa kuvanda, kana nguva yekutsvaira,
Imi hamutsvi here nezuva rino,
Kuda kuchena here nebote pahuro,
He-he-he, seka hako muera shiri.

Gu gu gu gu gu gu,
Tichinyatsoombera zvakanaka,
Paane nguva, makadii sekuru,
Mavasiya vakadii kwamabva,
Mafamba henyu zvakanaka,
Haiwa totenda nyatenga.

Chinyakare muchidimbu

Muka iwe watotesa pekurara,
Geza kumeso ubvise mabori,
Marirangwe mhou dzobova,
Unowana dzamira nemhuru.

Usunge madhonza ose ari mana,
Pasi raoma yanaya kwawe kare,
Dzimwe dzose usairire kumakura,
Tozotevera rufuramhembwe.

Rwawe rudziyakamwe rakwira,
Chidzisunungura zvino dzaneta,
Nekupisa kworoita putugadzike,
Nemutandabota machikichori.

Imbwa nematemo zvarongeka,
Nemunyu muchanza kunovhima,
Topfuura nekumariva murutsva,
Havi yenyama hakuna mazuva’no.

Kuona mhandara kubvuma rwendo,
Nguva zhinji rwavo rwuri mberi,
Kutsime, kuhowa nekunoteza huni,
Kwavanosangana naavo majaya.

Zviredzo zvagara zviri kurwizi,
Munyurwi imo munyasi memvura,
Madere nemakwaya hazvina nguva,
Asi huru dzinodyira kwodoka.

Kana yoruma kwira mumushuma,
Ugare divi rimwe iro rine mhangara,
Perera kutsamvu muonde une mago,
Mazhanje hudyidzana nadzo harurwa.

Tadya chakata zvinogadza moyo,
Zvino tonotiva chamunyurududu,
Rakadzikama iro dziva rine ngwena,
Kugarisana nekuremekedzana.

Tozorora manhede pasi pemubvee,
Tichiyeva mikonikoni nemagayaguru,
Kanyururahove kachitamba yako nepadivi,
Kusekedzana tichitandadzana.

Zuva ronanaira kuna amai varo,
Handeyi tinokokorodza mombe,
Rave gumbi kugokoro kwadzinonwira,
Kwadoka matatya zvootangoimba.

Zvipfuyo mudanga tavharira,
Vasikana dzavo huku muchirugu,
Tonanga kudare kunogocha mbeva,
Vakuru pavanorondedzera ngano.

Jenaguru mburetete totamba chisveru,
Nemuchongoyo tobambangura ngoma,
Kwatosara nguva diki yekuzorora,
Sekuti mangwana ndipo zviri.

Mwaita Sigauke,
Chihwa chebonga,
Mutupo watakagurirana,
Mwati kaha ngekuone tsimba,
Kuona mumhu todedera,
Mwaita Ngonyama,
Chiramba kudya uswa,
Kuona zuva musi wainodya,
Kuvhima pamwe sedanga,
Mhumhi chidyandimire,
Vanodya ichafamba,
Chawa pasi chaora,
Mwaita vaera imbwa,
Vavhimi venjere,
Vanoridza ngoma,
Ngemidzonga yenyama,
Zvaitwa vaGarwe
Kupepeta vatorwa,
Nerurimi chibhende,
Veukama vanonzwa,
Chichengeta varanda,
Haiwa chihwa,
Vanodya zveziya,
Vemawara machena,
Anonga dehwe rehosi,
Rinofukwa musi webira,
Zvaitwa Chihwa!
