Oh sweet Mother
thee, I suckled its breasts,
breeding me up like no other,
always with me, even amidst beasts.
love and care for you I’ll till I die.
Oh beautiful Mother, sweet woman
so caring and loving,
told me to be strong and be a man
that amidst all odds I must continue striving.
love and care for you, I’ll till I die.
Oh gorgeous mum,
brought me into this planet earth.
I’ll always love and stick to you like a gum,
till your last days, when you’ll rest calmly in the arms of death.
Sweet Mother! Sweet Mother!
No one like thee, absolutely no other.
