LA FOUINE – Fatima (English lyrics)

1st verse :
I prayed so much for forgiveness, the lord ended up forgiving me
I used to work two jobs at night, because diapers aren’t cheap
I would lean over your baby crib, I would feed myself from your light
And being that it came from the sky, honor your grandmother’s name
We had to take things upon us, so I took things upon me
No restaurant, no movies, 900 euros per month
No more money left to count, few people you can count on
Your grandmother was poor and your father didn’t graduate
We chose to keep you, without ever hesitating
I said “goodbye to the court rooms, hello to motherhood”
No matter the obstacles, no matter the dangers
I remember that one morning, everything changed for me

Chorus :
Since that famous morning, impossible to explain
When I took you in my arms, I watched you smile
I dreamed so much about you, I loved you right away
That day a man changed
Since that famous morning, impossible to explain
When we took you in our arms, when you saw us smiling
We dreamed so much about you, we’ve been loving you for nine months already
An angel was born that day (better days came along)
Ohoh oh, oho oho
Ohoh oh, oho oho
Ohoh oh, oho oho
An angel was born that day

2nd verse :
You mother was able to remain strong, she dropped out of high school
Faced with all kind of struggles, between strollers and notebooks
We used to live in a flat, with no speakers, no microphone
No money to eat at the restaurant, your mother isn’t a gold digger
In the living room with no plasma TV, with no DVD player
But I never saw her complain, she used to do her grocery shoppings at ED
It’s true we led a simple life, we would take strolls on Les Champs
I would see her lower her head when we would pass in front of the Longchamp boutique
Home schooling, between two Pampers
Your mother is a strong woman, a queen, a ghetto goddess
I remember your first steps, she taught you how to walk
And in her arms you’ll find what no one else will ever be able to buy you

Chorus :
Since that famous morning, impossible to explain
When I took you in my arms, I watched you smile
I dreamed so much about you, I loved you right away
That day a man changed
Since that famous morning, impossible to explain
When we took you in our arms, when you saw us smiling
We dreamed so much about you, we’ve been loving you for nine months already
An angel was born that day (better days came along)
Ohoh oh, oho oho
Ohoh oh, oho oho
Ohoh oh, oho oho
An angel was born that day

Bridge :
Ohoh oh, oho oho
Ohoh oh, oho oho
Ohoh oh, oho oho
An angel was born that day

Outro :
Since that famous morning, impossible to explain
When I took you in my arms, I watched you smile
I dreamed so much about you, I loved you right away
That day a man changed
Since that famous morning, impossible to explain
When we took you in our arms, when you saw us smiling
We dreamed so much about you, we’ve been loving you for nine months already
An angel was born that day (better days came along)
Ohoh oh, oho oho
Ohoh oh, oho oho
Ohoh oh, oho oho

No messing around this time, it’s a deep song
