Mama Come Back

Mama will you come back?
From the time you left us,
Banged the door behind us,
If i can remember,
Seated on the pavement,
Waiting for the judgement,
Of the pangs in my stomach,

I hope you come again,
You and papa laughed together,
Cherished one another,
If i can remember,
Twas my happiest moments,
All the sweetest comments,
Why didn't you maintain?
And you could have remained.

Poverty oh, mummy i swear,
We slept on a dirty cold floor,
Our house never knew a door,
If i ca remember,
Lice our best companion,
I never knew an onion,
Tatters was our wear,
Neither a shoe did i wear.

On the list of beggars, we were the chief,
You ever had your portion,
Then was it a confusion?
If i can remember,
You were so much beautiful,
More so you were charmful,
But old rich village chief,
Was my daddies thief.
