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 (1)__________ hear her voice on the other side
Of the telephone she was smiling
And she asked me a question
That I proudly answered
She said son did you take time
To know her?
I said mama, she is the best
But (2)__________ it hurts me so to go back to
Mama and say
Mama I'm getting divorced
(Oh) I'm getting divorced
The choice I made didn't work 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 (3)________ it
You'll be happy again
It's not easy to understand it son
But I hope you'll (4)________ it
You'll be (5)__________ 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 behind 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 (6)__________ be
(Oh) mama this choice I made
Didn't (7)________ 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 (8)________ say
Beautiful woman
Is another man's plaything
(Oh) lord, I'm hurting now
This (9)____________ 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 (10)____________________ it son
But I hope you'll make it
(You'll be happy again)
