"Are these Eastern Nigerian Igbo kids? The music sounds so familiar to me, I don't speak my language but I recognise the musical style, sounds very Igbo. I thank God for Youtube, so I can see all these beautiful videos. Such a blessing."

I transcribed these lyrics from the sub-titles that were given in that video. Additions and corrections are welcome.
*”Hey” is spelled “Hei” in the subtitle.

**"H-E-K-K" may just be an approximation of a sound that has no meaning.

***I think that the non-English words in the section beginning with "Kai Walayi" are in the Igbo language and the English words are their translations.

  1. For informational reasons and not as a criticism, I want to share that people who speak English as a first language wouldn't say
    "Lift your hands.
    Lift your legs.
    Lift your head."

    Instead of "Lift your hands", English as a first language people would probably say
    "Raise your hands".

    Instead of "lift your legs", English as a first language people would probably say "Stomp your feet".

    Instead of "lift your head", English as a first language people would probably say "lift our eyes (to __)".

    English as a first language people also say "lift our voices" and "raise our voices".
