Dunya’s little head ached
Dunya’s little head ached
My mummy, benefactress
I am your daughter, the wastrel.
Here’s the card, here’s the flax
Here are forty spindles.
Sit down, have a go
And watch over me.
Ah, what was she ill with?
Ah, what was she ill with?
My mummy, benefactress
I am your daughter, the wastrel.
Here’s the card, here’s the flax
Here are forty spindles.
Sit down, have a go
And watch over me.
She wanted soil from beneath the sea

My mummy, benefactress
I am your daughter, the wastrel.
Here’s the card, here’s the flax
Here are forty spindles.
Sit down, have a go
And watch over me
I will move to the sea floor,

My mummy, benefactress
I am your daughter, the wastrel.
Here’s the card, here’s the flax
Here are forty spindles.
Sit down, have a go
And watch over me
I will get soil from beneath the sea

My mummy, benefactress
I am your daughter, the wastrel.
Here’s the card, here’s the flax
Here are forty spindles.
Sit down, have a go
And watch over me
We will heal Dunya’s little head

My mummy, benefactress

Here’s the card, here’s the flax
Here are forty spindles.
Sit down, have a go
