Dear me, how I love him, that Sambaa man, but he understands not, when I speak of love.
Woman what have you, you can’t hello in Kisambaa, and you lack mdumange skills, I had rather love Makibua.
I did not give up, and tried my luck in his dialect, my name is Mamtoi, I come from Korogwe.
You are unable to speak Kisambaa, neither can you farm nor cook, let me go to sleep, and shall not return to yours.
Dear me, how I love him, this man named Shekalaghe, if late Shauri was alive, he would help me charm him.
