Jailanguru Pakarnu (Out from Jail) (1983)

  1. Hi,

    A more accurate rendition would be:

    "This clip includes the opening four lines of the song. The lyrics in Luritja are:

    Ngayulu kuwarri jailanguru pakarnu
    Ngayulu kuwarri jailanguru pakarnu
    Warumpilakutu ngayulu ananyi
    Ngayulu kikiri ananyi kungka ngayuku partarni

    The English translation is:

    I just got out of jail
    I just got out of jail
    Now I’m going to Papunya
    I’m in a hurry for my girl is waiting"
