Lyrics

Oh mta ka mama wam. Oh, my mother's child.
Oh mfo wethu. Oh, my dear brother.
Ndi ya ku khumbula mna. I miss you.
La la, la la.

Oh mta ka mama wam. Oh, my mother's child.
Oh mfo wethu. Oh, my dear brother.
Ndi ya ku khalela mna. I cry for you.

Motswalle waka. My dear friend.
Ngwana mme. My mother's child.
Ndiyani khumbula. I miss you.
La la kahle. Farewell.
(Repeated)

Chorus
We sangoma ngi velelwe. Oh, spiritual healer, I'm troubled.
We baba ngivelelwe. Oh, my father, I'm in pain.
We baba ngivelelwe. Oh, my father, I'm in pain.
(Repeated)

Oh mta ka mama wam. Oh, my mother's child.
Oh mfo wethu. Oh, my dear brother.
Ndi ya ku khalela mna. I cry for you.

Motswalle waka. My dear friend.
Ngwana mme. My mother's child.
Ndiyani khumbula. I miss you.
La la kahle. Farewell.
(Repeated and then repeated till fade)
