pēyak nīso nisto tipahikan
nikotwāsik, tēpakohp, ayinānēw tipahikan
mitātaht, pēyakosāp, nīsosāp tipahikan
kapētipisk ka-nah-nīmihitonaw

hāw wawēyi pē-wīcēwin
ka-mōcikihtānaw pēyak tipahikan
kapētipisk ka-nah-nīmihitonaw
ka-nīmihitonaw isko wāpahki
kapētipisk ka-tah-tihtipīnānaw

nīso. nisto, nēwo ispayici
pōn-kitōcikēci ka-tēpwānaw
kapētipisk ka-nah-nīmihitonaw
ka-nīmihitonaw isko wāpahki
kapētipisk ka-tah-tihtipīnānaw

ispī niyānan tipahikan
ēkota sōskwāc ka-mōcikan
kapētipisk ka-nah-nīmihitonaw
ka-nīmihitonaw isko wāpahki

kapētipisk ka-tah-tihtipīnānaw

āpihtā-tipiskāki
āsay mīna ka-mācisimonaw
kapētipisk ka-nah-nīmihitonaw
ka-nīmihitonaw isko wāpahki
kapētipisk ka-tah-tihtipīnānaw
