It’s been a long day,

Cutting reeds for my family

But now I’m going home.

Each day is a struggle,

Making ends meet,

But it’s worth it when I get home.

I’ve reponsibilities,

A family to feed,

Waiting, when I get home.

Each day is a struggle,

But my spirits are high,

Because I’ve them, when I get back home.
