Hip Hip Hip! Hurray!!
Hip Hip Hip! Hurray!!!
All glory and honour be to God for KWARA –
STATE OF HARMONY IS FIFTY!!!
*K*wara! Kwara! Kwara! Kwara, the State of Harmony is fifty!
*W*ow! wow! wow! Kwara, the land that flows with milk and honey is fifty!
*A*mongst the states of Nigeria, you stand tall and gigantic as a giant, at the centre, overwhelming and the lines of your poems shall keep overflowing!
*R*ising, raised and risen from your horizon, your banner towering above all,
*A*nd holding our country Nigeria together at the centre, from the central, in peace you serve as heart, hub and core, an epitome of unity and progress for all!

*S*tate of Harmony, land for all, I respect you, and I salute you, as you keep
*T*he true flag flying, I wish you more lofty years, more lofty years ahead!
*A*ll your sons and daughters, here at home, with folks fairly afar and those quite far abroad, today,
*T*ogether celebrate you on your accord, in one accord, from far and near,
*E*lites you made and generate, all over the state, the nation and the globe, today and forever sing your song and tell in glory your story of oneness and accord today as will ever be!

*O*f all the states in Nigeria, free fair for all, is your freedom, liberation, and liberty
*F*or by providence of influence, affluence, great strength, power and prowess in pace, your space and place on earth, cannot be denied, neither traded nor replaced.

*H*armonious in harmony your union, in bond of no discrimination nor intimidation,
*A*ll hail your non-discordant cords, without discordant concordant but rhythmic-rhymes and fun.
*R*oyal in your majesty, we pay our tribute to your nobility, dignity and pride,
*M*ajestic in your royalty and ostentatious grandiose, we all salute your repute!
*O*h! Kwara land for all, keep your guard, sentry and sentinel as ever, as
*N*igeria and all Nigerians celebrate you today, tomorrow and ever!
*Y*ou are at the centre, remember, to keep all afloat wherever forever from the central, as we believe in you and celebrate your greatness in honour!

*I*nspire all not to despair, in your modesty, ‘humbility’ and humility,
*S*o shall all be engraved, grafted and engrafted in your meekness, humbleness and assertiveness from the central, as we commemorate your reputation in admiration!

*F*ifty happy cheers and ringing shouts! To Kwara! Hip Hip Hip! Hurray!
*I*t is sweet pleasing pleasant shouts! To Kwara! Shout! shout! shout! Hurray!
*F*ifty happy cheers and ringing shouts! To Kwara! Hip Hip Hip! Hurray!
*T*o our sweet pleasant State of harmony! To Kwara! shout! shout! shout! Hurray!
*Y*ou deserve it, now and ever, savour it, forever and ever! Hip Hip Hip! Hurray!

All glory and honour be to God for KWARA – STATE OF HARMONY IS FIFTY!!!

Hip Hip Hip! Hurray!
Hip Hip Hip! Hurray!!
Hip Hip Hip! Hurray!!! -Chorus
KWARA – STATE OF HARMONY IS FIFTY!!!
