"Timbuktu Fasso"

THIS IS MY LAND

This is Timbuktu, my home land,
Where the children are mourning from gloom,

This is my land,
Timbuktu «the Maliba»,
The land of love,
The land of warmth,
The land of dignity,

Here is my Nation...

Why are we crying?
Why are the children crying?
Why are the young crying?

Cause of unfairness,
Cause of violence,
Fearing the future...

Here is my home
Stop crying

Cause no matter what, Timbuktu will remain
