How long has it been?
Not long since the days of the cave.
Seems like only yesterday
We were bringing down bison,
That old gang of mine

All this was savanna,
And over there,
Near that big boulder,
The barbecue pit

Ah, the feasting,
The fermented berries,
The grunting

I took a girl
And our bodies worked well together
Making many children.
We lived a while

On my last day
My oldest son told me
He would bring me back,
And that I would bring him back,
In turn, for we are all fathers
And mothers, sisters and brothers,
Since the beginning of everything,
When every stone could sing.
