It's Not Easy by Lucky Dube

Lord have mercy

I remember the day I called mama on the telephone
I told her mama I'm getting married
I could hear her voice on the other side
Of the (1)__________________ she was smiling
And she (2)__________ me a question
That I proudly answered
She said son did you take time
To (3)________ her?
I said mama, she is the best
But today it hurts me so to go back to
Mama and say
Mama I'm getting divorced
(Oh) I'm (4)______________ divorced
The choice I made didn't (5)________ out the way
I thought it would
This choice I made
It hurts me so mama

This choice I made didn't work out the way
I thought it would
This choice of mine (oh)

Mama said to me
It's not easy to understand it son
But I hope you'll make it
You'll be (6)__________ again
It's not easy to understand it son
But I (7)________ you'll make it
You'll be happy again

I remember in church
When the preacher man read the scriptures
You looked so beautiful, so beautiful
And so innocent

I did not know that (8)____________ that beauty
Lies the true colours that will destroy me
In the near future
This choice I made didn't work out to be
What I thought it would be
(Oh) mama this (9)____________ I made
Didn't work out the way I thought it would
Now I'm hurting

I remember when I held you by the hand
Preacher man read the scriptures
Putting words in your mouth
Maybe what the preacher man said
Was not something that was within you
Now I know what they mean when they say
Beautiful woman
Is another man's plaything
(Oh) lord, I'm hurting now
This choice I made didn't work out the way
I thought it would
This choice of mine (oh)
Mama said to me
It's not easy to understand it son
But I hope you'll make it
(You'll be happy again)
