Lucky Dube It's Not Easy Lyrics

Last updated: 10/22/2014 06:22:13 PM

Lord have mercy...

I remember the day I called mama on the telephone
I told her mama I' m getting married
I could hear her voice on the other side
Of the telephone she was smiling
And she asked me a question
That I proudly answered
She said son did you take time
To know her?
I said mama she is the best
But today it hurts me so to go back to
Mama and say
Mama I' m getting divorced oh
I' m getting divorced

The choice I made didn' t work out the way
I thought it would
This choice I made it hurts me so mama
This choice I made didn' t work out the
Way I thought it would
This choice of mine oh....
Mama said to me

Chorus (x2)
It' s not easy to understand it son
But I hope you' ll make it
You' ll be happy again

I remember in church when the preacherman
Read the scriptures
You looked so beautiful, so beautiful
And so innocent
I did not know that behind that beauty
Lies the true colours that will destroy me
In the near future

This choice I made didn' t work out to be
What I thought it would be
Oh mama this choice I made
Didn' t work out the way I thought it would
Now I' m hurting

I remember when I held you by the hand
Preacherman read the scriptures
Putting words in your mouth
Maybe what the preacherman said
Was not something that was within you
Now I know what they mean when
They say

Beautiful woman
Is another man' s plaything
Oh Lord I' m hurting now
This choice I made didn' t work out the way
I thought it would
This choice of mine oh

mama said to me
it's not easy to understand it son
but i hope you'll make it
you'll be happy again

It's not easy | Reviewer: Dan Vintzye | 10/15/14

I first heard this music when I was going to pick my wife on a date during courtship and I repeated the song when we were together in the and I realised we were both in luv with the song. We have since wedded and the song remains a lesson for us to keep and cherish our marital promises and vows. Lucky Dube was truly that great preacherman at the alter. RIP the legend.

Really, It is not easy! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/8/14

Lucky is the greatest reggae musician I have ever seen. The track "It's not Easy" is beyond my understanding. It was when I took my time to read the words or lyrics of the track that I realised what he was saying. He sang it all! It is not easy to make that marital vow and back out. U can never know the true colour of a lady irrespective of the number of years u dated. U wil know them truly when they enter into ur house as a wife. Rescinding ur decision then is no more easy. It is not easy. RIP Lucky Dube.

Oooh! Lalala! Thz song is my favority 1 and many others like Love me the way I am, fugitive, i ve got U baby, etc Lucky Dube there is not other great artist I know like u! When i read ur text ur music how u control ur voice! U r a heaven sent. I always say that u were a prophet. He liked my mother land Rwanda he came so many times and his message was always Love and unity! We needed to hear him that time after our tragedy of Genocide. Dube, ur music heals, teachs, restore, educates, preachs, guides, gives the sense to life. The day u passed away is my birthday! It z remark for me. RIP great man. Big Respect

I heard this song for the first time today on my way to church and I cried. They say ''indoda ayikhali'' and I did not but after two years this song got me crying. ''The choice I made didn't work out the way I thought it would''. Indeed ''Rastas Never Die'', your music lives on. RIP
