Oh! Mama!

OH! MAMA
(Words by Kristian Bediiako, music traditional)

(Flute intro)

Of all the creation
Of all the creation of GOD
Of all the creation of GOD
Of all the creation
None ceases to amaze me
More than my Mama, Mama

Of all the creation
Of all the creation of GOD
Of all the creation of GOD
Of all the creation
None ceases to amaze me
More than my Mama, Mama
Oh, Mama, oh Mama
To you all my praises
Undying love

The great burden of carrying me for nine months
And through the pain you born me into this world
Cradled in your arms your one reason for living
My bank, my farmer, my lawyer, doctor, Mother
What more could I say to you
But forever my undying love
Forever my undying love
Forever my undying love
Forever my undying love
Forever my undying love
Forever my undying love

Only the start of your lifetime of labour
My growing years and your toil sweat and slaving
Cooking, washing, cleaning, guarding, protecting
Yet in your eyes all in the name of love
What more could I say to you
But forever my undying love
Forever my undying love
Forever my undying love
Forever my undying love
Forever my undying love
Forever my undying love

Oh, Mama, oh, Mama, oh, Mama
Am I making a God of you in my eyes?
Oh no, no, no, you are as I see you
The loving Mama
The caring feeling woman
What more could I say to you
But forever my undying love
Forever my undying love
Forever my undying love
Forever my undying love
Forever my undying love
Forever my undying love

(Flute solo)

Oh, Mama, oh, Mama, oh, Mama
Am I making a God of you in my eyes?
Oh no, no, no, you are as I see you
The loving Mama
The caring feeling woman
What more could I say to you
But forever my undying love
Forever my undying love
Forever my undying love
Forever my undying love
Forever my undying love
Forever my undying love
