I remember when we were young
The songs we sang
Games we played together
Little things we stole for each other
I remember we used to play
We held hands during play


We both cried when one was hurt
I remember we shared a heart
Though we were not of the same hut
A brother I was, a friend
As one we fought the fiend
Today the sun sinks in the East
For there are anthills on your chest

You walk head and shoulder high
Make me feel shy
We no longer cry in each other's arms
The world will raise alarms
Streams of tears walk on my cheeks
Ageing is a hawk to chicks


I regret when I see grass growing
Cry when I see anthills expanding
Oh, let us be toddlers again
Free me from this nostalgic pain
