ENGLISH TRANSLATION OF LYRICS
[Mother’s POV]
Daughter, wake up
your broom is ready
Daughter, wake up
the clothes are waiting for you
x2

She’s sweet and beautiful
but she’S very lazy
She wakes up after 8am
? who will come and ask for her hand in marriage

Daughter, wake up
your broom is ready
Daughter, wake up
the clothes are waiting for you
x2

I always ask her
? how do you want me to marry you off
Washing the dishes
and she forgets to add Clorox

Daughter, wake up
your broom is ready
Daughter, wake up
the clothes are waiting for you
x2

She doesn’t know about tea leaves
She uses Lipton tea bags
And she’s burned the rice
her in-laws would bring her back

Daughter, wake up
your broom is ready
Daughter, wake up
the clothes are waiting for you
x2

You’re lazy, you’re lazy, you’re lazy, oh, you’re lazy
x2

[Daughter’s POV]
Mom, leave me alone
You’ve made my head spin
Cleaning and cooking, and there’s no man I’m interested in

Mom stop, stop with your complaining
? Mom stop, how far will you raise your voice
x2

From school, to work, and your household chores
x2

[Mother’s POV]
You’re complaining too much
don’t talk back to your mother
Here they come to ask for your hand
they’ll put a gold cross around your neck

Daughter, wake up
your broom is ready
Daughter, wake up.
the clothes are waiting for you
x2

They’ll ask for your hand
We’ll give you up.
He’ll marry you, and we’ll be rid of you
x2
