My mother once told me that An opportunity will not slip away And indeed she was right

Oh dear me Oh dear me

I was a fool not to listen I ignored all the advice she gave me

Oh poor me Oh poor me

I walked away from my mother like she was a fool But today I see that she was not a fool but someone who knew

Oh Lord Oh Lord

Where will I go? Show me the right path I didn’t follow I was fooled and blinded by this world

Oh mother Oh mother

Please forgive my recklessness I was blinded by arrogance

Oh heavens Oh heavens

Why can’t you just take me to rest My life ended a long time ago It ended for I belittled my mother
