I remember it all, what they say
That Nyonjo would always remain
Stuck in a heart's corner, so they say
And for long I tried and tried but all in vain
She was still that special, and I denied it Nyonjo
That she did not get stuck like the tune on a banjo

I remember it all, her smile, the lines of her lips
The trace of her bright eyes and the curvy of her hips
The glow of her cheeks and her falling back hair
And I wish she would still hold things dear
The lining of her collar bone, and her flashing teeth-white
The gait she holds herself with and the esteem she holds quite

After all this long, after all this song, I ask what went wrong
I still remember, that one day in December, her beauty in amber
And it's true what they say Nyonjo is nyonjo
And her place will remain here Nyonjo
