Two old men and old lady in the middle. Warlajabbi in the middle - one carrying fire stick in her mouth. Right hand, he's got little Tomayu - makes whirly wind. When they travel there's a cool breeze and later on there's the big song line. They travel, three of them, naming all the sites. On the left hand side, Darba, dancing grasshopper - he dance all the way when they create the big song line naming all the country. Dance, creating all the little creeks and made a lot of springs and having a ceremony and taught many grasshopper people the song. They got up to the next door neighbour property and they stopped. Language called Larglun.
