cooking and sewing and caring for the young
From early in the morning till the setting of the sun
We children try to help her when we can of course
But around our home, Mom's the main labor force
a week Mom gets a chance to put her chores down
Then she carries her basket to the market in town
There the shopping is colorful and lots of fun
A cross between supermarket and celebration
There's also a smaller market down by the lake
Every morning folks rush there shortly after they wake
Because that's where they buy their favorite dish
From the fishermen who catch and sell their own fish
