Oumou Sangare - Saa Magni
(Death Is Terrible)
... a very sad song
... une bien triste chanson

LYRICS:
Saa Magni
---------
O death; O death
Death is so harsh
Death is so cruel
Death who struck down Amadou Ba Guindo
But spares no creature
Nothing can stop it
Not even fame
Or having many children
Great riches and many friends
Amadou is gone
And when I go to Douentza I will not see him again
He will never be seen again in Bamako
In Douentza Tenin Ongoïna cries for you
Whilst in Bamako Amadou cries for you
As Adja' cries for you
Your widow Fanta cries for her missing husband
For Guindo has disappeared, struck down by treacherous death
In Bamako your old friend Alou Tracré misses you
How bitter is death, how bitter separation
It is hard to break the links (of friendship)
How hard it is to be separated from one's people, Guindo
But death spares no one
The Grim Reaper of hope did not spare Amadou Guindo
If it did not spare the Prophet Mohammed
Just as it struck down Amadou Chérif
Leaving his father Bouba in pain
May his soul rest in peace
How harsh is separation, how harsh death
And merciless death strikes without distinction
Villainous death crouches at a bend in the path, lying in wait for us
May God preserve us from it
But death spares no one
It strikes in the prime of life
Perfidious death crouches at a bend in the path
O death; O death
You did not spare Guindo
No creature can escape you
O death; O death, how you are cruel
