Samo ku waar

Samo ku waar, samo ku waar, saamo ku waar
Sarreeye calanka sudhan bilay dhulkiisaa,
Samo ku waariyoo iyo bogaadin sugan
Hanbalyo suuban kugu salaannee saamo ku waar
Geesiyaashii naftooda u sadqeeyay qarannimada Somaliland
Xuskooda dhowrsan kugu salaannee samo ku waar
Guulside xanbaarsan soo noqoshadiisa
Kalsooniduu mutaystayee dastuurka
Dastuurka ku salaan kugu salaanay
Midnimo walaalnimo goobanimo islaanimo kugu salaanee samow samidiyo
Samo ku waar samo ku waar saamo ku waar

Unofficial English translation

Long Life with Peace

Long life with peace, long life with peace, long life with peace
To the high-flying flag that brings beauty to our land
Long life with peace and admiration
We greet you with joy, long life with peace
We greet you with the memory of the heroes who sacrificed their lives
For the nationhood of Somaliland
For the flag of victory: the symbol of rebirth
For the trusted Constitution
We greet you with unity, brotherhood, sovereignty and Muslimhood
Long life with peace, long life with peace, long life with peace
