Here Comes Our Mothers

Words and music, Traditional – Zulu

Mothers everywhere always find little ways to make each day special for their kids! This is a Zulu song from South Africa learned from the wonderful group, Ladysmith Black Mambazo. It tells of the time of year when the mothers sell their extra foods at the market and always bring something wonderful home for their children.

 

Here come our mothers, bringing us presents
Ngci bo, Ngci bo, Nampayano mame *

We can see apples, we can see bananas
Ngci bo, Ngci bo, Nampayano mame

We can see cookies, we can see sweet things
Ngci bo, Ngci bo, Nampayano mame

 

*this is pronounced…”trrrre te bo”
