Mamou lyrics by franco



What are you saying?

What are you saying?


What are you saying mamou?

You say that I’m always reporting you to your husband

You say that I am a “trouble maker” in your marriage


Madilu just let her talk as much as she likes

Doesn’t she know the things she’s been doing?

On the streets where she walks people see her


In the houses that she always visits, walls also report her

In all road junctions that she likes hanging around, taxi drivers always see her

Why does she always spread stories that you are a “troublemaker in her marriage”?


I am the one who defends you mamou

I am the who knows all your secrets mamou

Today I have become a bad person mamou


You know when things are hot mamou

You will remember me mamou when I am gone

Even if you call me a prostitute mamou


Oh mamou , I am surprised mamou

I always thought you are my best friend

Because, you know that I know all your secrets


What has surprised me today mamou is that you have gone to insult me at Musa’s place

You have told him that I am a prostitute

You of all the people mamou know very well that I am married, I have kids, though I am now divorced


And today you, mamou that I trust

You start calling me a prostitute

But you know ‘Prostitution’ is not a disease


‘Prostitution’ is not a punishment

Mamou you are a married woman

You always surprise me, you always go out with a big handbag


Inside that handbag you are carrying a loincloth ‘kitenge’, your toothbrush as if you were traveling far away, a pair of slippers, and a lot of cola nuts

Mamou you know very well that I am an alibi to you

Because I know all your men boyfriends


Whenever your husband gets you talking to another man boyfriend

You quickly claim that he’s my boyfriend

But I have never thought of breaking your marriage


Because I always wanted you to bring up your children

Instead of interfering in your marriage so that after that people will blame me by saying: “Look, this prostitute has caused that couple to divorce”

What are you looking for mamou?


What are you looking for mamou?

You have already secured my bank account

Please behave like a married woman


It is because of your marriage that you are in Europe

Stop cheating on your husband mamou

when he calls you admit that you go out


Mamou if I decide to say a word I will be blamed because I am a prostitute

You told me yourself that your husband sent you to Europe in order to take care of your children

That’s the reason he opened a bank account for you


You told me that since you came here, your husband calls you twice a day

At 6 am and at midnight

But just after his midnight call


You get hold of an insecticide and spray in the whole house

So that your children can sleep soundly till you come back

Because you know your husband is supposed to call you at 6 o’clock in the morning, you will make sure that you come back by that time to answer the call


And when the call of your husband comes listen to what you often tell him

“Hello, father of my children, we are all fine

except your children are not easy to handle


especially the younger boy who is your photocopy, daddy

He really surprises me

Imagine he has broken your photograph’s frame, the one you gave me so that I could see you face


This young boy is really turbulent exactly as you were in your childhood

As your mother told me

The father of my children, I do not have more to tell you today except you should remember to send us money for food”


You are the one who is misbehaving mamou

You are the one who is misbehaving

You don’t respect your husband, mamou


You even took his respect and gave it away mamou

You do not even respect your husband’s friends

Today you have insulted me by calling me prostitute, I am surprised


Mamou, you are spreading rumors by calling me “prostitute” all over Brussels

You have even gone to Paris to spread such rumors about me

You have sent one letter to Kinshasa, another one to Brazzaville


Prostitution is not a disease

You should know Mamou that I’m hurt

As a matter of fact, I want to report you to your husband mamou


It is useless for me to report you

But I have filmed all the stupid things that you normally do

I have sold it to Yobo


So that he can burn that film for me

Mamou hang me

The way Jesus Christ was hanged on the cross


Two nails on his hands, one nail on his feet

Mamou you are a married woman but you often surprise me

I can see that you are a witch


You are a parasite, like a rope

Mamou, what can I say about you

What kind of example can you give to married women


There is no good example

You want people to say that because am ‘a prostitute’

I have befriended a married woman


That’s why I am giving you a bad advice?

No, it’s you yourself who have bad thoughts

I am the one who supports you


I am the one who knows your secrets

Today I become a bad person, mamou

You know when things go bad mamou


You will remember me when I’m gone mamou

Even if you call me a prostitute

I am the one who often stands by you mamou


I am the one who could even die for you

Today I’ve become your sworn enemy mamou

You know when things go bad mamou


You will remember me when I’m gone

Follow the behavior of married people, mamou

Madilu, let her speak


She does not know the little things she does

Although even the colors of the house can report her

People usually see her, but today she’s spreading rumors about me


She is insulting me by calling me a prostitute

Prostitution is not a disease

Prostitution is not a punishment


I earn money from my “prostitution”

Every person knows about my prostitution

I do not cheat anybody


Why are you spreading rumors about me

Mamou one day, morning found you away from home

Because you did not sleep at home


You anticipated the situation by calling your husband before 6 o’clock

Because you wanted to tell him that you have been admitted to hospital with the sick baby

You are the person who misbehaves mamou


You are the person who misbehaves

You do not respect your husband mamou

Your husband’s friends mamou


You took his respect away mamou

Your husband’s friends mamou

You don’t respect them mamou


Today you’re calling me a “prostitute” I am surprised

Mamou, today you are calling me a ‘prostitute’

If you look at it closely there is no difference between me and you


The only advantage you have in marriage is that even when you get children with other men you will claim they are your husband’s children and name them after him

Mamou you know that I make money from my ‘prostitution’

I do not beg from you mamou


Hang me, you know I have everything mamou
