Stand Up

(This song is from a tape called “Adisokan” by a band called “Wigwam”, Summer Beaver (Neebinamik)

Waa-baa-gayn  ka-shee-way-bug,(Look upon the things that happen)
Kayn-daan-in-dash Nish-i-naa-bek, (Know for certain – Native people)
Tchee-nee-bow-ee-yek mee-na-a-waa, (Stand and rise - again)
Waa-ban-daa-mek ma-shi-say-win. (to meet the hardships/trials)

(Chorus) Nee-ba-win!  Nee-ba-win!  (Stand up!  Stand up!)
Nee-ba-win!  Mee-na waa! (Rise again!)
(Repeat Chorus)

Aah yaa yaa mush-kow-zee-win, (There is inner strength)
Kayn-daan-in-dash Nish-i-naa-bay (Know this for sure – Native people)
Tchee-nee-bow-ee-yaan mee-na-a-waa (when you rise again)
Waa-baan-daa-maan pee-maa-dis-ee-win. (to meet life’s forces)
