I was so fast and a magic maker
No one ran like me, ate like I did
And hid like me;
I was a master of all houses
Inside the house;
By the night, I ran past shoes
The leftovers I ate and crushed
Their cloths I made them rugs
They spent sleepless nights
When I was around

Poison and snags were there for me
Death could not touch my tail
I have been so wise and untouchable
I never thought of anything faster than I
Oh! My God forgive me
For dying thus

I did not know that it would be my fate
That I, the wisest and fastest animal
Would die like this
To die in the house of gogo

By surprise I was in his tough nails
He was stronger and faster than I
My God forgive me,
I am not trying to complain
I am just reminding you
That there will not be a remembrance
For me, nor grave, nor tombstone
Forgive me for dying in my sins.
