amazing Cape Verdean singer, instrumentalist and composer Carmen Souza has written the lyrics (in Creole language) to Horace Silver's great tune: "Canção pa nha pai"

"father's coming back home after another hard sea trip"

"Ess ê um canção pa nha pai qui passá tud sê vida na mar
Na bord daquês navio
El ta trabalha viaja ta tchora sodade di volta
Ta luta pam vivê

Ma sempre el ta voltá
Chei d' ligria pa dam
Dipôs de tont temp na mar
Nha pai
Ess ê um canção pa exalta sê exempl sê herança pa mim
Força de vontade, carinh
Um vida tud ta luta ta viaja ta conquista tud mund
Note ta parecê sem fim

Ma sempre el ta voltá
Chei d'ligria pa dam
Depôs de tont temp na mar
Nha pai"

This was my dads all-time favourite song. He was in a coma for a week, the minute I put this song on he began to die, and died right at the end of it, my face to his crying as he took his last breath. Bye bye daddy, I hope you are so happy, I miss you so much, the pain is enormous I miss you so much, be in peace, I love you, you're my best. I just want to be with you. Love you.❤Forever and ever, this is your song daddy.

The song has had a noticeable impact in pop music. The opening bass piano notes were borrowed by Steely Dan for their song "Rikki Don't Lose That Number", while the opening horn riff was borrowed by Stevie Wonder for his song "Don't You Worry 'Bout a Thing". Earth Wind & Fire also borrowed the opening bass notes for their song "Clover". In the booklet of their box set, Paul Weller noted that he 'nicked 'the chords for The Style Council's 1984 song 'Me Ship Came In!'
