Kwatinobva kure

Nyika ihombe kwazvo tinokwana tose,
Mombe madhongi nehwai ifararira,
Panhabvu tukomana injodzi munhandare,
Tusikana tuchitamba dhere nemamhuza,
Inongova njakenjake nharaunda yose,
Kana anokendenga kuti kunze kunei,
Hapana kurwirana mweya wokufema.

Kumakomo emhute masango anorura,
Kwatinoswerodzifudzira nekuvhima,
Pfumo kuruboshwe, tsvimbo kurudyi,
Demo papfudzi, imbwa mumashure,
Kuhwandirana nengwe totizira muninga,
Zvaitika zvaitika bhurugwa rebenzi,
Risingaziwe mberi kana shure.

Nzira yamabhazi anoenda kudhorobha,
Iri kure kwazvo hapana kana ruzha,
Tumichovha tunodzika kuno muhuruwa,
Tuchiperera kuchikoro uko kwaShinja,
Tete vauya pazororo kutosunga ngoro,
Kuyambuka Chitumanyere nemumvura,
Kunotambira chingwa nejemu dzvuku.

Apa pane hurudza yenjera nemichero,
Apo pagere muvhimi nemumori weuchi,
Nzuzu mubati wehove iri nechepapapo,
Uyo anotamba nembezo kuveza majoki,
Pamhiri mupfuri vemapadza nemapfumo,
Paseri anobika rezviyo kungoti mukombe,
Pabira wotoimba manhanga kutapira.

Kupfunya ndekwe avata nayo,
Isu maguta tinorara takatandavara,
Ndarama hatineyi nayo mudunhu rino,
Tinoicherera pasi kunze muruwanze,
Nekuti chedu kuchinjana navavakidzani,
Rungwanangwana patinomutsana,
Tichibvunzana mamiriro ehupenyu.

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 kave 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!
