LYRICS TO THE SONG ‘UBUTUMWA16’

N’uko  Gihanga  ahanga  u Rwanda, aruraga  inka  n’abana   
Abamushibutseho   bakomera ku  muheto. basangiraga  akabisi  n’agahiye 
ari  nako  baterana  ingabo  mu bitugu Bagatabarana  aho rukomeye.
      
ntibyatinze  ingoma  kazungu  izana  muzunga  iratuzubaza  bishyira kera  
ibijya  gucika  bica amarenga,  icyiswe  revorisiyo  y’itanu n’icyenda 
Kibasira  ubwoko tutsi.
         
 itandatu  kabiri,  ikiswe  ubwigenge  ku  banyarwanda , gihinduka 
ubwigunge ku batutsi ubwo  iringaniza  riba  riraje,  nanjye ngo  iringaniza,
nako  ikandamiza barirukanwa iyo  mu mashuri N’ufite  akazi  barakamuvutsa.

 igihe  cy’ibyitso  kiba  kiraje , ubwoko  tutsi bwitwa  inyenzi   barakubitwa 
baranafungwa  abahonotse Barameneshwa icyenda nakane ruvuga induru
impuzamugambi zirabatsemba, inkongoro zibona ihaho,zisagurira amafi y’inyanja.       
Ntampongano y’umwanzi,imihoro n’amafuni  inkota n’urumambo biducuza 
abacu babaroha mu mazi no mumanga  nubu ntiturabaca iryera.
   
inkirirahato zibahonotse zibura amajyo iyo mu matongo , zirajuragira  biritinda 
ubwo izamarere zirahagoboka ziza zambariye itabaro ,maze zirahosha, ubu 
turatujezirarutaha ,zirarutaka,zirarusiga ruranogerezwa ubu  ruratengamaye 
Nyamara  urwishe y’anka ruracyayirimo kuko abapfobya bo badahwema  
Ibi ariko ntibidukome munkokora , ahubwo twibuke kandi tuniyubaka. 

kwigirira icyizere bidutere kusa ikivi cy’abacu no guharanira kubaho kandi neza. 
Twibuke abatutsi bazize GENOCIDE duhangana n’ihungabana.
