Na Som (Thank You)

I.
Please don't shut me out Dad for I think my disobedience has left me
If only you knew just how I really felt then you'd surely understand certain things
The reputation that has preceded me, truly surprises me! Why do people think that I'm a hooligan?
If only you knew just what I really thought, then you'd surely understand certain things...
I'm not really unruly, those are just things they say; I wish they'd leave me out of their gossiping
Even if they call me names, those are just simple words; please just let me be!!!

REFRAIN
Iy-i Dear Dad," the crocodiles" won't ever hurt me,
I'm happy , thanks for teaching me well x4

II.
Well little lady here I am, show me the moves you said would free my mind
Show me how to be happy little lady, just in case I miss out on the truth
Well little orphan you seem to be happy, you've survived the worst of the poison
show me how to be peaceful my little friend, just in case I end up being very rich

I'm not really unruly etc.......

Malinga Mam (My Anger)

I.
I really don't know what I've done, to deserve such heartache
Not having what I need to provide for myself
It seems I'm plagued with misfortune, I'm forever wandering looking for the answer.
Back in my homeland, what's the story there? The death of a prosperous country is a mystery to everyone............
Yet the story is definitely there, who can ignore such suffering?
All bad things will pass, my people!!! Above all never give up hoping!!!!!

Instrumental Break

II.
It seems like it's been forever since you know it all started to put me down
You basically robbed me of all my zest for life!!
It's my story!!! Ma, the source of my anger!! Yes, it too will pass! Hope is still alive.
When I take stock of my life, I see nothing to be ashamed of. All your malicious word are borne
of envy and ignorance!!!!!
That's my story. Ma, it's the source of my anger. Yes, it too will pass. I'll never give up hope!

PART 2

CHANT
There's still a long way to go, keep your chin up "c'est la vie"

MODULATION
I'm much overjoyed, your plot has been uncovered, You've finally held your tongues.
I'm much overjoyed, your plot has been uncovered, your plot to poison my mind but it won't work (the literal translation is" I won't Die" but that's kinda morbid)

VAMP
That's how it is Dear Cathy X3 I'm tired of being angry
That's how it is .................. X3 That's how it is

Oseya

I.
Na sengui nde, dina longo, mo nde na poi no, wasa oa

Mbembe, malinga, onyola nje wala longo; o taki bwambi o leye bisso nguea wondja o-wo
ah-ah ndutu, se sese

Teteh bwea toh mba ndedi, na ben nyongha sengha doi la Mama

CHORUS

Oseya (Don't Cry)

I.
I heard someone call your name, so my mind went looking for you
I know that in truth your not far away so please speak to me
The pain lingers, the sadness won't go away
Lord have mercy on me, I still need to hear my mother's voice.

II.
The words to a song, all the good things in life; my life, which you gave me only for
you to leave me alone
The pain lingers, the sadness won't go away; Lord have mercy on me
I still yearn to hear my mothers voice.

CHORUS
Little one, don't be so sad; these things happen in life
Just put your trust in the Lord and know that she wouldn't want you to cry

BRIDGE
The days are going by, but it still seems like yesterday; we need to know
what all this mans
I don't know where to turn, I still need your guidance
My heart still weeps and weeps and weeps

III.
Pain, anguish, why did you have to leave so soon
You paid the price to give us a chance to see a better life
The pain lingers, the sadness won't go away

Life, please give me a chance, I still need to hear my mothers voice

CHORUS

Muenj'asu (Our Friend)

I.
E'i beh bosinga, e'i beh kumwa bato, motonde longe ani diya bisso
a ta nde nguea wala o bobse nyolo mboa'ao-o, su la mbu meisanedi bunya
Asi biye pohn, na di sengi sese, a pudi pohn nde jongwane bona bao
Mutonde longe ani diya bisso wengue mba ey, su la mbu meisanedi bunya

CHORUS

II.
Nje mo, nje mo nje mo a kwedi yo-wo, etimbi beh na wa peh o tondi nde bwami ey

Nje mo, nje mo, nje mo a kwedi yo-wo weh!!! Bwea toh soh bisso ndedi
Di nonge ponda, di nonge jangamene, di si bedi biya longe ey...

CHORUS

Heaven Is

I.
When times are rough, when evening falls, when my mind is frayed and weary
I turn to you for inspiration, for will to carry on. You always have a place for me.
Emotions are my winning card, but in the past I know they hurt me
And those times I'd turn to you for will to carry on. You'd always have a place for me.
Heaven is my way. 

CHORUS
Heaven is my everything. It isn't just a part of me
Heaven is the light that leads my way
I'll always dream of going there, to see the ones for whom I care
Who left this world to be there with the Father, and the son.

II.
My favorite things, they come from You, no one knows how
much You've helped me, and yes I know
I haven't bee the best that I can be. You still did have a place for me.
Heaven is my way.

CHORUS

BRIDGE (Instrumental)

CHORUS

Brotherman

I.
None to be there, none to take your side; none to shelter you, to soothe your aching mind
But believing, the things that truth can do, can make the difference, and cast away your blue

CHANNEL
By and by, you'll get the chance to never hear never
fighting odds that stand against you
By and by, you'll get the chance to make yourself a winner
and walk away from the night
 

CHORUS
Oh, oh-wo, it's the mental strain that hurts me, I cry inside for my brotherman
who needs the strength to go on
Oh , Oh-wo, it's the kinda thing that makes me wonder if our kind was meant to live or die
Oh, Oh-wo, it's the pain inside that hurts me, I weep inside for my sister
who needs the strength to go on
Oh, oh-wo, it's the kinda thing that makes me wonder if our kind
was meant to live or die

II.
There you go again, with your strange philosophy; landing on your feet
but fearing still to stand
A single generation, is flooding us with hate, it's like we have no choice
in what to think or say
I guess we'll find a way, to break the walls that hold us
on and on we'll go, riding with the flow
I guess we'll find a way to make our voices heard, I know we need the power
more liberty, and belief in your brotherman
