Mama Africa

Versions: #1#2
Mama Africa
My mother,
Is a single mama.
She has to make [baby] bottles,
Every day...
Besides working
As a grocery bagger
at Casas Bahia.
 
Mama Africa
Has so much to do
Besides takin' care of baby
Besides giving baby love,
Baby boy you have to understand,
Mama Africa comes and goes
But is never far from you
 
When mama leaves the house
Her sons olodunzam,
Party it up
Mama has calluses on her feet
Mama needs some peace
Mama doesn't want to play anymore
Baby son give mama a breather
There's so much tribulation
In mama's daily life

There is no translation for the Olodum neologism.

Here's an interesting take on it: http://www.portalbip.com/colunistas/naralimeira/naralimeira116.html
