Bi sounkouroun lou la donkégna ah ah
Bi kamberen lou la donkegna ah ah

Djely mousso ni kédjou to wara bo
M'ba mofila téma yan féou

I think this might be in a dialect from Mali. Great song.

If you do not kiss me now give

This is a solid happy ending
and our new start

your little summer trials

I'm your princess

love wins
You're just what I wanted

your little summer trials

I don't have the correct translation, anyhow I really think it's the Dogon Language ( they call it "awa danu" or "hidden language"), at least it sounds alike. And that's why nobody can translate it but a Dogon (actually they live in Mali,close to Burkina Faso...), 'cos nobody really knows their language. However, the real meaning is very difficult to get completely, even if you've got the written translation, as a single word can get a lot of meanings (such as in many other African Languages, for instance Twi, Djoula, Voun, Ewe, etc.)...Good luck...
