MKE BADO

Sitaoa mimi, sababu zangu ni za kibinafsi,
Ndoa itanifunga, nitakuwa kwenye jela,
Mke akiwa polisi, anilinde nyumbani,
Bado nangoja naogopa kuoa.

Akiniona na yule, mke wa jirani mara mbili tatu,
Faraghani tukizungumza, mambo ya kawaida tu,
Atanishuku aniulize, katu langu jibu hatakubali anisomee,
Bado nangoja naogopa kuoa

Nikimchosha weye, hatasita asilani,
Mahakamani kunipeleka, kunishtaki kutofanya wangu wajibu,
Hakimu akimsikiliza, kifungu nitapewa nakwambia,
Bado nangoja naogopa kuoa.

Hukumbuki yule rafiki, alizirai siku kuu,
Bibi harusi katoroka, na bwana mwengine tofauti,
Maajabu hayo jameni, aibu za mke naogopa mie,
Bado nangoja naogopa kuoa.

Kelele zake ja kasuku, jikoni nikikosa kumsaidia,
Eti sote sawa atasema, hata nguo zetu nifue nianike,
Nikikataa eti mi si mume, ampigia yule wa kando,
Bado nangoja naogopa kuoa.

Kisha talaka nimpe, mali yetu adai tugawe bila shaka,
Anishushe hadhi jamiini, wazazi wakose imani nami,
Baraza la wazee pia wao, kesi kutofuata mila desturi,
Bado nangoja naogopa kuoa.
