OUR MUMU DON DO
Our mumu don do!
We don know wetin we dey do
As hunger take ground full
Na only you dey belle full
Shey you think say we be fool?
Haba! We no be Johnbull
Your innocent face like ‘come and do’
No fit mumu us for round two.
Dat time wey we dey school
Naso we dey learn two-plus-two
Our books we take as a boo
Say education na e be the tool
Wey go later give to our shoe
That ‘ko-ko-ka’, sound wey dey cool.
With street-waka for wetin we go do
Na ‘Pe-re-re’ we hear after school.
When time reach to go to the poll
Na then our group you go begin to pull
You go come be our paddi for ghetto,
Con dey share rice for bowl.
You go come street; come eat ‘koko’
You go come dey pack gutter, con drink ‘pito’.
When you get votes,
and election don go
You go come forget us for ghetto.
For your eyes na like say you sharp
Like say make I dey give you clap.
While hunger dey tear people slap
Milk and honey dey flow for your tap
You dey chop fried rice and chicken lap
And you pass with your ‘boning’ cap.
Our Panadol don turn ‘Panasharp’
Now, our votes go land you hot slap.
E tey wey we don dey shut up
But now we don com wise up
As things don make us fired up
And our blood don con rise up
Na im com make us stand up
And get ready to fire up.
All of you wey don fuck up
Our votes go tell you what’s up.
