Goosey, goosey, gander,
Whither shall ke
molatlhegi?
Upstairs, le downstairs,
Le
mo go my lady's kamore.
There ke kgatlhano onala monna
Who wouldn't raya his prayers!
Ke took him by the left
lekoto
Le threw him down the stairs.

Molemo bosigo, sleep tight,
Tosga phatsima
In the moso lesedi
Dira what's right
With gotlhe your might.

Molemo bosigo, sleep tight,
Ga tetlelelo e e kwadilweng the bedbugs loma.
Le if they dira
Then take your shoe
Le kgwanya ‘em ‘til
They’re ntsho le bududu!

Nngwe, pedi, tharo, nne, thlano –
Once I caught a tlhapi tshela.
Thataro, supa, robedi, robongwe, lesome –
Then  ke tetlelelo e e kwadilweng it tsamaya again.
Why ke tetlelelo e e kwadilweng it tsamaya?
Because it sekumutwana my monwana so.
Which monwana did it loma?
The little monwana on the right.

I'll sila his bones apaya my borotho.

Eeny, meeny, miny, moe
Kappa a tiger by the toe
Fa he hollers let him tsamaya,
Eeny, meeny, miny, moe
My mme told me
Peke the very best nngwe
Le you are [not] it.
Alternate 2nd Verse:
Out tsamaya nngwe
Out tsamaya pedi
Out tsamaya another nngwe
Le that is you.
