Kalash – E.T (English lyrics)

1rst verse :
Hollywoodian reality, back where I’m from, damn it’s crazy
There’s some who are waiting for death to come tomorrow or even sooner
The sky is red, it’s raining tears of blood
Mom told me that back in the days people used to live longer
Waken up in stupor, another name gone in the wind
Some would say that it’s super, while crying at the funeral
And to remember, a lot of them didn’t make it to spring
I pour one in memory of you, from time to time

Chorus :
Everyday a mama cry
Everyday a mama cry
Innocent or criminal
Funeral and court rooms
Everyday, everyday
Everyday, everyday
Everyday a mama cry
Everyday a mama cry

2nd verse :
A scream during the night, a life faints away
The news paper’s front page, this morning, white sheets and everything
So young, already gone, nothing worths more than life, not even an Armani coffin
More and more common, death is being caused by bullet
Taking quarrels and conflicts along with her
Pain and scorn, the graveyards are full of irreplaceable people, this is madness
Gun, Magnum, Smith & Wesson
Enemy, bye bye, there’s no one left
Mal donne (??), may the lord forgive us
We’re all guilty and yet everyone acts surprised
Seven o’clock, the phone is ringing
Sorry ma’am, your flesh, your blood fell under the powder
Nothing but “Rest In Peace”, so wrong and so sad
They said : “pli ta pli triss”

Chorus :
Everyday a mama cry
Everyday a mama cry
Innocent or criminal
Funeral and court rooms
Everyday, everyday
Everyday, everyday
Everyday a mama cry
Everyday a mama cry

3rd verse :
25 or 23 years old, single mother, two or three children
Dead or in jail, he won’t have time, it’s either death or prison
Who’s right, Mama ?
Men’s justice will give a verdict but won’t bring him back
Revenge and retaliations
Deemed immortal, taken away by the light of a single lead shower
All of this is real, back where I’m from it’s really common
The sky is red, it’s raining tears of blood
The sky is red, it’s raining tears of blood

Chorus :
Everyday a mama cry
Everyday a mama cry
Innocent or criminal
Funeral and court rooms
Everyday, everyday
Everyday, everyday
Everyday a mama cry
Everyday a mama cry

    Thanks, the song is amazing!
    Also do you know what “pli ta pli triss” means ?

      It’s a proverb in créole. It basically means that the wheel turns. One day you’re up, then next you’re down..
