Long ago when our fathers were young
Men came and the claimed all the land
Took the trees and they sent them away
Now we try to survive day by day
You see, they're squeezing us out

And the creatures they sneer at our creed
As they witness the bootleggers' greed
We can run, but we cannot go far
We no longer know who we are
You see, they're squeezing us out

Goodnight, Mother dear
Going to sleep, gonna put out the flame
Can't see no future here
Lay me down and end this shame

Out here on the edge without hope
No heart, no spirit to cope
The silent rebellion goes on
Maybe someone will notice we're gone
You see, they're squeezing us out

Goodnight, Mother dear
Going to sleep, gonna stand aside
Can't see no future here
Time to go to the other side

Goodnight, Mother dear
Going to sleep, gonna put out the flame
Can't see no future here
Lay me down and end this shame

Luitú, uaá iatimú iunaitá
Pinú iára nê icú
Eni caauaçú i muçarái
Chueuára suí sauaitá pitumbica
Piumirí suí.
Nheengarí ichebé nê nheengára

Goodnight, Mother dear
Going to sleep, gonna stand aside
Can't see no future here
Time to go to the other side

Goodnight, Mother dear
Going to sleep, put out the flame
Can't see no future here
Lay me down and end this shame

(Fade out)
