CHORUS (mourners) 
Father, Father. 
Father, Father. 

CHIEF MOURNER 
O Father, you have given 
Time to your children. 
You will look after 
Those in your care. 

WOMEN'S CHORUS (mourners) 
We beg you 
Look after us. 
Father, Father. 

CHIEF MOURNER 
Father. 

WOMEN'S CHORUS 
Into the future, 
In ever-growing circles, 

CHIEF MOURNER 
You will be there, 
And your spirit will keep us moving 
In the right direction. 

FULL CHORUS (mourners) 
(Ah) 
O Father, you have given 
Time to your children. 
You will look after 
Those in your care. 
Into the future, 
In ever-growing circles, 
You will be there. 

CHIEF MOURNER 
And your spirit will keep us moving 
In the right direction. 

SHANTY 
Hey, wait a minute. 
You didn't tell me. 
I fell into a place 
I didn't wanna go. 
It doesn't matter. 
I swear 
I'll never go through another of those things 
In my life. 

You should have warned me Of all the dangers. 
But maybe there were some things you just didn't know. 
But you're my father, 
And surely fathers ought to know about most things 
In this life. 
Don't tell me. 
I thought you were the best. 
You were only human 
And a lot like all the rest. 

Like me you were fragile. 
Not secure 
With the fast tide of life 
That would speed past your door. 

CHORUS (mourners) 
Father, Father, Father. 

BOYS and CHORUS 
Toti mundo nati. 

CHORUS 
Father. 
(Ah) 

SHANTY 
I forgive you, 
Will you forgive me? 

CHIEF MOURNER 
You will be there. 

CHIEF MOURNER and CHORUS 
And your spirit will keep us moving 
In the right direction.
