[tabs tab1=”Poem” tab2=”Translation”]

[tab id=1]I’ll tell you what I am
Gimme a pen
By the time you’re done counting from 10
I would have already told you all the things I am

A writer,
A poet,
A singer,
Yes I know it,
I like to drink my moet,
Oh! Ba re ke moet

Ho pele, ho pele, ho pele!

Ke tla’o tjaela ke se ke go khenye,
Ke mmaago, ke aus’wa go, ke moratuwa wa go
Ke molemi, ke mojali, ke master mind ya TV and film industry.

Mara above all this,
Ke letswai la lefatshe,
Ke a gift from God,
Neo to all of you.

I’ll tell you what I am
Give me a pen,
By the time you’re done counting to ten,
I would have already told you all the things I am.

A writer,
A poet,
A singer, yes I know it.
I like to drink moet,
Oh, wait a second, apparently its called moët

Wait a second,

I will tell you before I bore you
I’m your mother, I’m your sister, I’m your lover,
I’m a planter, I’m a plougher, I’m the mastermind of the TV and film industry,

But above all this,
Iím the salt of the earth,
A gift from God
A gift to all of you.
Blessing[/tab]
