    This translation veers away from "literal" sometimes in order to convey a more accurate meaning/expression. Also, FYI, ElSah ElDah Emboo is baby talk. Specifically, in babytalk "emboo" means "drink".

    Oh man oh
    Oh man oh
    Oh man oh
    Oh man you holder of all beauty, have pity on me, my wait has been so long
    Oh man you holder of all beauty, have pity on me, my wait has been so long
    Find me a little beauty, a modest amount
    Find me a little beauty, a modest amount
    that will reward my long long wait
    you holder of all beauty, all beauty
    elsah eldah emboo, give the boy to his father
    elsah eldah emboo, give the boy to his father
    poor thing! the boy is crying
    The boy is thirsty. Quench him.
    Pick up the boy off the floor
    give the boy to his father
    the boy is still a little bundle and he's making noise and a ruckus
    the boy is still a little bundle and he's making noise and a ruckus
    and he makes the mind distracted because he looks so much like his father
    Elsah eldah emboo, give the boy to his father
    poor thing! the boy is crying
    pick up the boy off the floor
    the boy is thirsty. quench him.
    That boy is still little and sitting...(inaudible)
    That boy is still little and sitting...(inaudible)
    and he makes the mind distracted because he looks so much like his father
    Elsah eldah emboo
    give the boy to his father
    Poor thing! the boy is crying
    I feel bad for the boy
    pick up the boy off the floor
    give the boy to his father
    Elsah Eldah Emboo
    give the boy to his father
    poor thing! the boy is crying
    I feel bad for the boy
    pick up the boy off the floor
    give the boy to his father
    elsah eldah emboo....
