This sounds like the song that I learnt in Frankie Armstrong Voice Workshops as one sung by the women upon the return of the young men from their manhood ceremonies and that was reputed to mean something along the lines of "the boy who has found his own stick, no longer neeeds his mother" ...

Works great as an overlayed audience participation song.

I'm very interested to know more about this now!!!

Cheers! R-J
