Whoops, I meant “the bible” and not “the bibler”.

Like

Yee mama elohey, elohey, yee mama lamasebetagni

I don’t know Amharic, but I’m a bit familiar with the bibler, and I think it should be
Yee mama elohey, elohey, yee mama lama sebaktani (or “sabektani”)

I assume that “elohey, elohey, lama sebaktani” is the Amharic (or Ge’ez) version of “eloi eloi lama sabachthani”, which is supposedly what Jesus “cried” on the cross and is usually translated “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”

P.S. I’m not trying to start any type of religious debate here. I’m just comenting on the lyrics.
