From what I’ve gathered, this song is about forbidden love. A young girl wishes to see her love, and her mother forbids her to go. She must stay and eat her supper.
If you have a better translation for this song, please do share it with me. My women’s choir Yala Lati loves singing this one! And sometimes I’ll just teach the first verse in my song circles.
Ask Heather for sheet music if you’d like to give it a try with your groups.
