Here is a video from the Malian duo Amadou and Mariam to cheer you up if you are feeling down. Beautiful song, terrific guitar playing, lovely sentiment and a great video with lots of humor and wonderful, exciting animation. I love it when the stick figure boogies!

Translation:

You can go, the path is clear.
You can move, life is so beautiful.
You can go, the path is clear.

You have lost your job in this life.
Massi téladi.
Your wife left you because of that.
Massi téladi.
You lost your family in this life.
Massi téladi.
Eh! Your friends left you because of that.
Massi téladi, massi téladi…
Life is a school.
You can’t stay, you can’t stay.
In this life here, you must redeem yourself.

You can go, the path is clear.
You can move, life is so beautiful.
You can go, the path is clear.
You can move, life is so beautiful.

Your great marriage was ruined because of that.
Massi téladi.
Your great love was ruined because of that.
Massi téladi.
Your great brotherhood was ruined because of that
Massi téladi, massi téladi…
Life is a school.
You can’t stay, you can’t stay.
In this life here, you must redeem yourself.

If you mess it up, no one will help you redo it.
You have lost your good job in this life.
If you put yourself in the labyrinth, no one will help you get out.
Your wife left you because of that.
If you mess it up, no one will help you redo it.
You lost your family in this life.
If you mess it up, no one will help you redo it.

You can move, the path is clear
You can move, life is so beautiful…
