Only the last 4 bars have survived of a song about ‘bonyukunyana’, which is a pet name for a little girl. One word is repeated: 'ntoi', a playful word used in Lesotho culture to encourage a child to eat her porridge. The featured image shows the whole fragment. Moerane attributes the text to "Setsoto", a word he often used to describe lyrics that came from a traditional source.
