Alicia Keys – 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...
Hey, hey, na-na-na oh

She tried hiding under a bush to save her child,
Poor woman had no place to go,
Lightning caught her with her baby on her back,
Friends sends for help
But it was too late... It was too late... Too late for mama
It was too late... Too late for mama
Oh yeah, oh yeah

Too late for mama [repeat w/ad-libs]
