nilh p’e’ nu s’iiye’
She’s indeed my lover

thunu s’iiye’, nilh p’e’ nu s’iiye’.
thunu s’iiye’, ’uw’ hay ’ul’ p’e’ nu s’iiye’.
thunu s’iiye’, yath ’uw’ ’al’mutstham’shus.
nilh p’e’ yath ’uw’ ni’ ’u tthunu shqweluwun.
nilh p’e’ nu s’iiye’.

My lover, she’s my lover.
My lover, she my only lover.
My lover, she’s always waiting for me.
She’s always in my thoughts.
She’s indeed my lover!
