PREPARE MY GRAVE

Alone I can’t do Mutually we can Me and you real friends Me and you not enemy But my friend know Prepare my grave I saw you very far I swore to follow your way My father forbade my choice My mother and all my clan Lamented Mkude you gona die! My heart refused their will My hears denied to snoop And my tongue spoke to them That never shall we break up So my friend know prepare my grave Dig the grave deep For death will follow soon Choose a good coffin Put my body in Don’t forget the cross A sign of God’s people Place doesn't matter Wherever plunk me So my friend know Train my grave
