Where are the stairs
That goes to the house on the cliff?
The constituents of slope till you
How many hills will you name?
Oke Bere, Oko Foko, Oke Itunu,
Oke Aare, Oke Ado, Oke Mokola,
The blessings of the hill,
The Mohammedan-hill parlance,
When houses rise and fall,
Seeing houses high and low,
Now the centre of the town by the forest,
