O Rhosi is a one of the liveliest Li we have ever come across and the melody totally captures the spirit of the song. Here's a song which accompanies dancing. A song favoured at festivities to express happiness and excitement. A song to inspire gladness and lightness of heart.


The song goes in Chokri as:
O Rhosi! (Rhosi! Rhosi!)
Doshe mori, Doküda tele!
   
Uhe lühe, lohe li a zho!
   
O zhali...zhali ho ü, O zhali...lohe li a zho.
Dumi hono, küpra phi hohe.
Küpra to ri, nerü khro ho le.
Thatü so hi, Hakünü tüso!
Shozü kükre, Ulüdo Kürhü.
Zoba nyiri, Utü votele!


Translated, it says:

All gathered here, first among equals.
We are called to come together, 
To give our best and do our most.
Life rolls out with song and dance, 
One for every new day.
I am not the best but I will give all of me. 
I hope the same of you.
With song on our lips, joy on our face and friendship in our heart.
With youth and strength on our side, we can win it yet.
Any battle that comes our way, 
Aren’t we called to triumph?
Our song will end but life goes on,
Year after year.


Well, we love this song so much that we have recorded three versions. The original version appears in our debut album which will be released very soon(Hornbill 2011). The other two versions will be officially released soon. The remix dance version has already been out unofficially for a while. 
The final and third version will be making an appearance soon on youtube with our official video (in the making).
