Lyrics - Bambara

(Folk song from Mali)

Makun makun bebe o makun
Makun makun bebe o makun sa
Mun de kεra bebe la makun
Fosi ma kε bebe la makun sa
Mun de kεra bebe la makun
Kɔngɔ de bε bebe la i makun sa.

English Translation - Don't cry

Don’t cry, don’t cry, my baby don’t cry
Don’t cry, don’t cry, my baby calm down
What happened to my baby? Here, calm down
My baby has nothing, don’t cry, calm down
What happened to my baby? Here, calm down
My baby is hungry, don’t cry, calm down
