Verse 1 (Delvin):
I plead with you Nerea, Do not terminate my pregnancy
When God gives a child, He brings forth with it a plate
Give me the child I’ll raise it, Do not terminate my pregnancy
When God gives a child, He brings forth with it a plate

(Bien):
Perhaps he* could become Obama, rule America,
Perhaps he* could become Lupita, win an Oscar

(Amos):
Perhaps he* could become Wanyama (a Kenyan soccer player in the UK), play soccer in the UK,
Perhaps he* could become Kenyatta, the founder of the nation,
I plead with you Nerea, Do not terminate my pregnancy
When God gives a child, He brings forth with it a plate
Give me the child I’ll raise it, Do not terminate my pregnancy
When God gives a child, He brings forth with it a plate
