I promised my father
A night would come
That would be my last night
Under his roof

Yes, I will belong to another man
The man I can call mine
You were my man since birth,
The end has come to your leadership
For the man of my dream

From this time tomorrow
I will no more be called by your name
I will live as another being
Sure, it’s a world of love

Your love appreciated
Your kindness noticed
Your patience loved
Your greatness esteemed
Father, O father
What you have labored to care for
Is now going to be tended by another
I part with tears of your kindness
In all
This is the last night
