Track Name: Gende
Children are like wheat, You shouldn’t try and eat it all up. If you do, you’ll be left with a wicked hunger.

Family ties are like a candle. If you try and put it out, you’ll be left in the dark.

Children are like a mirror, if you look at them too hard, they’ll leave you and you’ll be missing them.
Track Name: Maribayassa
Once there was a women
Who could not conceive
She got up
And went to see Maribayassa
So he could give her a child
One months, two months
She became pregnant,
But she never danced the Maribayassa dance

One day her son
Grabbed a hoe, and headed out to the fields
but on his way, Maribayassa fell upon him
He got sick
He got Malaria
His intestines started hurting
Pretty soon, he was on death’s door
And then, he passed
His mother got up
And went to see the fortune teller
“Oh fortune teller”, she said
“Tell me what happened to my son!”
