Dai Jesu achoinekwa ndaizofara naye.
Dai Jesu achoinekwa ndaizofara naye.
Taizofara naye fara naye.
Taizofara naye fara naye.
Dai Jesu achoinekwa ndaizofara naye.
Dai Jesu achoinekwa ndaizofara naye.
Taizofara naye fara naye.
Taizofara naye fara naye.
Kwaziwai? Kwaziwai?
Makasimba, here?
Ndakasimba kana makasimbawo.
Ndakasimba, ndakasimba. Ndakasimba kana makasimbawo.

You raise you head, you beat the sun
But your boys they lie so close to you
Do you dare get up and wake the two
Oh Elias, I see you there at work in the day time
Do you think you could answer all the questions in the world
In just one word - I think you could

[chorus:]
'cause if you die will I get word that you're gone
Or will I hear it in passing conversation
Or will I stop short and fall to the ground
Distance is short when your hand carries what your eye found
Hold my hand just one more time
To see if you're really going to meet me
Hold my hand just one more time
To see if you're really going to meet me

Honest and Manuel, well they're at school now
Given the chance that their father's never seen
To see what's beyond section 17
And in ten years when you look back at your boys
Well you know they've grown way taller than the tallest
Sugar cane in the field

Chorus

I see your wife she stands stooped over by the fire outside
And I see your boys and when they look up
You know I think they got their mother's eyes
'cause she looks so proud she looks so happy
She looks so proud she looks so happy

Chorus

    The song means to me a poor african man that lives in the savanna he wakes up everyday for work and his boys are so close to him he could wake them. He loves them very much and does a lot for them. He is wide and faithful but is sick and dying. Everyone loves him. His days are numbered
