Ga giggle the gulmohars

Ma murmur the marigolds

Pa pop the pretty poppies

Da dance the dahlias

Ni nod the neem flowers

Sa re ga ma pa da ni sa

IDE WERE WERE NITA OCHUN: LYRICS AND MEANING

Ide were were nita ochun

Ide were were

Ide were were nita ochun

Ide were were nita ya

Ocha kiniba nita ochun

Cheke cheke cheke

Nita ya

Ide were were.”

Ide Were Were is a song to the goddess Ochun, the goddess of intimacy, love, beauty, wealth and the Mother of the African sweet or fresh waters.

In her form as the mother of salt waters, the goddess is known as Yemaya. Moreover, according to the Yoruba elders, Goddess Oshun is the “unseen mother present at every gathering”, because She is the Yoruba understanding of the cosmological forces of attraction, moisture, and water.
