Algonquin Water Song Phonetic Lyrics

Written by: Irene Wawatie Jerome, an Anshinabe/Cree 

In honor of Grandfather William Commanda, Algonquin.

Grandmother Louise Wawatie taught the 

Water Song to Grandmother Nancy Andry 

SING FOUR TIMES, 

EACH TIME FACING ONE OF THE FOUR DIRECTIONS IN THIS ORDER:

EAST, SOUTH, WEST, NORTH

Nee bee wah bow

En die en

Aah key mis kquee

Nee bee wah bow

Hey ya hey ya hey ya hey

Hey ya hey ya hey ya ho

“We sing this song like a lullaby. The song means  the water is the life’s blood of our mother the earth. Water is the life’s blood of our own bodies”

— Grandma Nancy
