Acholi Chants

Alokolum yee!
where we sit
knit table clothes!

These days, we chant dirges in English
Acholi (language) has become too difficult
We speak Acholi with a twang like we are speaking English.

The English do not chant dirges in Acholi
The English do not speak Acholi
But us, we speak English like we are eating sweet potatoes.

No one can defeat us
We defeat the English in their mother tongue.
