Bring drums.
Bring drums,
And mark the passing,
With their song.
Let it resound,
Across the hills,
And through the land.
Bring drums.

Bring drums,
To mark the start,
Of life begun.
Mark time,
Choose meaning,
With each new strike.
Bring drums.

Bring drums,
And do not be ashamed,
Or look through tears.
As you mark,
And measure,
All your circle’s turning.
Bring drums.

Bring drums,
Not to be louder, better,
Than the rest.
Instead just add,
Your song to all the rest,
And turn it into heartbeat.
Bring drums.

Bring drums,
To mark your journey,
And your dance.
Mark birth,
Mark life,
And loudly beat it’s final note.
Bring drums.
