Brenda Fassie - Too Late For Mama Lyrics

Ten kilometers barefooted in the bush,
Started raining on the way to fetch some water,
Poor woman had a baby on her back,
Was struck by lightning on her way,
To fetch some water...

She tried hiding under a tree to save her child,
Poor woman had no place to go,
Lightning caught her with her baby on her back,
Friends relatives ran for her
But it was too late
It was too late... too late for mama

Husband came running to the scene yeah,
Poor man held his dead wife in his arms,
Eyes full of tears not believing the nightmare,
Knelt down and prayed for this, was a painful loss

Too late... too late for mama
Oh mama mama, poor mama,
It was too late... too late

She tried hiding under a tree to save her child,
Poor woman had no place to hide,
Lightning caught her with her baby on her back,
Friends relatives ran for her
But it was too late, too late for mama
Too late... too late for mama
Oh mama mama,
Oh poor mama, it was too late, too late

Too late for mama... oh mama
Mama with the little baby
She's gone... she's gone... she's gone, oh poor mama

It was too late [repeat w/ad-libs]
