    If I Might Be An Ox
    - Traditional Tribal Song from Ethiopia

    If I might be an ox,
    An ox, a beautiful ox,
    Beautiful but stubborn:
    The merchant would buy me,
    Would buy me and slaughter me,
    Would spread my skin,
    Would bring me to the market,
    The coarse woman would bargain for me,
    The beautiful girl would buy me,
    She would crush perfumes for me,
    I would spend the night rolled up around her.
    Her husband would say: "It is a dead skin."
    But I would have her love.
