Ode to mama
Mama;mama, the first woman I ever saw,
Mama;mama, the first woman to show me love,
Mama,my mama, she taught me to use the needle and thread,
Mama,my mama,and how to make my bed.
Mama;mama,I still know how to make beans,
you showed me so.
Mama;mama,I’ll never loose the patience you long bestowed.
Fine woman,strong woman,
you lived life fully till the end.
Smart woman,intellectual woman,
you taught us all to read and spell.
Mama,mama;the first woman to rub my head,
Mama,mama;the first woman to hold me to her chest,
Mama,mama; we’ll see you again when jesus bursts the sky,
Mama, till then mama, continue to rest with the saviour on high
