Lucky Dube – It’s Not Easy

Lord have mercy
I remember the day I called mama on the telephone
I told her mama I’m getting married
I could hear her voice on the other side of the telephone she was smiling
And she asked me a question that I proudly answered
She said son did you take time to know her
I said mama she’s the best
But today it hurts me so
To go back to mama and say mama I’m getting divorced
Oh I’m getting divorced

This choice I made didn’t work out the way I thought it would
This choice I made
It hurts me so mama
This choice I made didn’t work out the way I thought it would
This choice of mine Oh mama said to me

[Chorus x2:]
It’s not easy to understand it son
But I hope you’ll make it
You’ll be happy again

I remember in church
When the preacherman read the scriptures
You look so beautiful so beautiful and so innocent
I did not know that behind that beauty
Lies the true colors that will destroy me in the near future

This choice I made didn’t work out to be what I thought it would be
Oooh mama
This choice I made didn’t work out the way I thought it would
Now I’m hurting

I remember when I held you
By the hand preacherman read the scriptures
Putting words in your mouth

Maybe what the preacherman said was not something that was within you
Now I know what they mean when they say

Beautiful woman is another man’s plaything
Oh Lord I’m hurting now

This choice I made didn’t work out the way I thought it would
This choice of mine Oh mama said to me

[Chorus]
It’s not easy to understand it son
But I hope you’ll make it
