English Translation For Sira by OUMOU SANGARE

Leave the river shores, Oh women, where you wash clothes
Leave the river shores, Oh men, where you wash clothes
A good person’s child may not resemble them

Leave the river shores, there are caimans!
Leave the river shores, there are snakes!
Leave the river shores, there are even hippopotamuses!
The baobab's trunk is smooth, but its fruit is rough.
Its fruit is rough
The baobab's trunk is smooth, but its fruit is rough.
Its fruit is rough
The baobab's trunk is smooth, but its fruit is rough.
Its fruit is rough

This man’s father is a great scholar, but his child is a thug
A good person’s child may not resemble them
This man’s mother is a great scholar, but her child is a thug
A good person’s child may not resemble them
The baobab's trunk is smooth, but its fruit is rough

Wise men of Wassulu told me to give birth to a child who would not be like you
They told me, women don't always give birth to a child who is like her
They told me, women don't always give birth to a child who is like her

The baobab's trunk is smooth, but its fruit is rough.
Its fruit is rough
The baobab's trunk is smooth, but its fruit is rough.
Its fruit is rough
