Mama
[Intro]
[Gentleman]
Mama you are, a shining star
And I love you mama yeah
Wherever you are
From near or from far (oh mama)
[Ky-Mani Marley]
Forever my mama, yeah

[Chorus]
[Gentleman]
Mama I know that you have been through the suffering
The tribulation and the pain keeps hovering
Over your head, still always show love and share your last bread
[Ky-Mani]
You bless you son and tell Jah Jah to guide over him
His little sister and him need covering
Over their heads
Always show love and share your last bread

[Verse 1: Gentleman]
How fortunate it is for me to have a good mother
There is only one and there will never be another
There is no comparison to you there is no other
Love the way you grow me, my sister and mi brother
After the cloudy days I know things will be better
Life’s a roller coaster sometimes pain sometimes pleasure
But the wind will blow the clouds away and make a sunny weather
Unconditionally, my love for you will last forever
[Chorus]
[Ky-Mani Marley]
Mama I know that you have been through the suffering
The tribulation and the pain keeps hovering
Over your head, still always show love and share your last bread

You bless you son and tell Jah Jah to guide over him
His little sister and him need covering
Over their heads
Always show love and share your last bread

Mama I thank you for the things you have taught me
All of the presents and the gifts you have brought me
All those kind gestures, I still can remember
Mama you are the defintion of virtue
And I will never stand aside let them hurt you
Your values and att**ude I will always remember

Now it’s time for you to collect your reward
