It’s Not Easy” By Lucky Dube.

I remember the day I called mama on the telephone

I told her mama I’m getting married

I could hear her voice on the other side of the telephone she was smiling

And she asked me a question that I proudly answered

She said son did you take time to know her

I said mama she’s the best

But today it hurts me so

To go back to mama and say mama I

‘M getting divorced

Oh I’m getting divorced

This choice I made didn’t work out the way I thought it would [x2] it hurts me so mama

Mama said to me

[Chorus:]

It’s not easy to understand it son

But I hope you’ll make it [x3]

You’ll be happy again

I remember in church

When the preacher read the scriptures

You looked so beautiful and innocent

I did not know that behind that beauty

Lies the true colors that will destroy me in the near future

This choice I made didn’t work out the way I thought it would be [x2]

Now I’m hurting

I remember when I held you

By the hand preacherman read the scriptures

Putting words in your mouth

Maybe what the preacherman said was not something that was within you

Now I know what they mean when they say

Beautiful woman is another man’s plaything

Oh Lord I’m hurting now

This choice I made didn’t work out the way I thought it would

Mama said to me. 😢
