With traditional sounds of Somalian strings and drums "Hoobaale" begins with one of the best lines from K'naan to sum up the whole album as he says: "How come they fix the bridge only after somebody has fallen?"
(Repeat:)
Hobaalayow heedhe


How come they only fix the bridge after somebody has fallen..
Hobaalayow heedhe

How come they only fix the bridge after somebody has fallen..
Hobaalayow heedhe

How come you turned the deafest ear when it is your own brother calling..
Hobaalayow heedhe

How come you turned the deafest ear when it is your own brother calling..
Hobaalayow heedhe

How can you teach your kids to love when it is killing they are memorizing..
Hobaalayow heedhe

How can you teach your kids to love when it is killing they are memorizing..
Hobaalayow heedhe

How can they go to war with terror when it is war that is terrorizing..
Hobaalayow heedhe

How can they go to war with terror when it is war that is terrorizing..
Hobaalayow heedhe

Adduunyada hanweynidaa milmaa loo halgamayaaye..
Hobaalayow heedhe

Hawadana rag baa dagoo dayaxa hoos u soo dayaayee..
Hobaalayow heedhe

Dadka ninkii hurdee taa ogeyn halistii weyaanee..
Hobaalayow heedhe

Anagana haleelada dhashiyo hilibka mooyaanee..
Hobaalayow heedhe

Inaan dhiig dhulkeena u hurnaa wey haboontahaye..
Hobaalayow heedhe
