Time at School (adapted by Dolores Sand)

pēyak tipahkan nitatoskān, nitatoskān, nitatoskān
pēyak tipahikan nitatoskān pōn-āpihtā-kīsikāw
At one o’clock I work, I work, I work
At one o’clock I work, in the afternoon

nīso tipahikan nimētawān, nimētawān, nimētawān
nīso tipahikan nimētawān pōn-āpihtā-kīsikāw
At two o’clock I play, I play, I play
At two o’clock I play, in the afternoon

nisto tipahikan niwawēyīn, niwawēyīn niwawēyīn
nisto tipahikan niwawēyīn, pōn-āpihtā-kīsikāw
At three o’clock I get ready, I get ready, I get ready
At three o’clock I get ready, in the afternoon

nēwo tipahikan nikīwān, nikīwān, nikīwān
nēwo tipahikan nikīwān, pōn-āpihtā-kīsikāw
At four o’clock I go home, I go home, I go home
At four o’clock I go home, in the afternoon
