In a foreign land beneath a foreign sky
They speak of mama laye
They don't believe she died
The people raise their eyes
They said they'd sing a song
They ask the spirit world
Cause they know where she's gone
She's never far away, mama laye, no
She's never far away, mama laye, no, no no

They say she never sleeps
She never close her eyes
She speaks the magic tongue
She's slowly hypnotized
She's never far away, mama laye, no
She's never far away, mama laye, no, no no
She's never far away, mama laye, no
She's never far away, mama laye, mama laye

They are as grains of sand
And then they are as one
They pray to mama laye
The father, mother, son
They say she's never far away, mama laye, no
She's never far away, mama laye, no
She's never far away, mama laye, no, no no
She's never far away, mama laye, mama laye
She's never far away, mama laye, no
She's never far away, mama laye, no
She's never far away, mama laye, no, no no
She's never far away, mama laye, mama laye
