LET ME BE!

Oh, how beautiful it was

Why did you cut your hair?

Not so easy to get married

No, no, cause you’re not fair

 

You’re to feed your family

Do learn to wash and cook

What is a girl if not pretty?

Pay attention to how you look

 

Thirty and yet single?

How is your life gonna start?

Spouse and sex and kids

Don’t you dare flee from these parts

 

Married and not any kids

Have you gone mad?

Two girls and no boy

Oh! That’s really sad

 

Going to job you lady

What will happen to your kids?

Debating with your hubby

A heavy blow is what you need

 

Stop now y’all, I can’t breathe

Withdraw your hands, I can’t see

For a change, be kind to me

Let me live and let me be
