Sweet Mother Lyrics
Sweet mother I no go forget you
For dey suffer wey you suffer for me yeah [2x]
When I dey cry my mother go carry me
She go say my pikin wetin you dey cry yeah yeah
Stop stop! stop stop!! stop stop!!!
Make you no cry again oo
When I wan sleep my mother go pet me
She go lie me well-well for bed
She go cover me cloth say make you sleep
Sleep sleep my pikin oooo
When I dey hungry my mom go run up and down
She dey find me somthing we I go chop
Sweet mother eeeeee.. sweet mother oooo.. eee
