This is one of Mabrrr's most touching songs.

Too late for mama- Brenda Fassie

Ten kilometres barefooted in the bush,

Started raining on the way to fetch some water,

Poor woman had a baby on her back,

Was struck by lightning on her way,

To fetch some water...

She tried hiding under a tree to save her child,

Poor woman had no place to go,

Lightning caught her with her baby on her back,

Friends, relatives ran for her

But it was too late

It was too late... too late for mama

Oh no

Husband came running to the scene yeah,

Poor man held his dead wife in his arms,

Eyes full of tears not believing the nightmare,

Knelt down and prayed for this, was a painful loss

Too late... too late for mama

Oh mama mama, oh poor mama,

It was too late... too late

She tried hiding under a tree to save her child,

Poor woman had no place to hide,

Lightning caught her with her baby on her back,

Friends, relatives ran for her

But it was too late, too late for mama

Too late... too late for mama

Oh mama mama,

Oh poor mama, it was too late, too late

Too late for mama... oh mama

Mama with the little baby

She's gone... she's gone... she's gone, oh poor mama

It was too late

Too late... too late for mama

Oh mama mama, oh poor mama, mama with a little baby

It was too late... too late

Oh mama, she was a mama

Mama with a little baby
