"Shakara (Oloje)" as written by and Fela / Kuti....
To ba b'oni sakara pade
Pasan to ma fi na e oje l'o nje
Kelo se npe o
Shakara oloje ni

[Chorus]
Shakara oloje ni

Shakara oloje ni o...

We get the shakara man
We get the shakara woman
Shakara man, him go say,
"I go beat you, I go nearly kill you"
Na shakara
"I go beat you, go be like you get accident"
Na shakara
"You no know me"
Na shakara
"Wait me I commot my dress"
Na shakara

You see, him no fi do nothing
Na shakara oloje
We get this song for them
We go sing am like this, we go say:
Ah, ah
Ah ni, ah ni, ah ni...

Ma kan no e
Ma kan no e pa
Iwo ke, oti mo mi ni
To ba to ko duro de mi o
Duro de mi gbosan mi
Wa je baba nla iya
Ah, iro ni o ko le ja
Oje lo nyo, kelo se npe o

[Chorus]
Shakara oloje ni

Shakara oloje ni o...

Na shakara woman
Tell her say, "My dear I like you"
She go say, "You likey who? Who you like?"
"Comori jare, hmm look at this man"
"Why you come from self?"
"No be me and you o, no touch me o"

Ah, you see, she wan do
Na shakara
They call am shakara oloje
We get a song for them
We sing am like this, we go say:
Ah, ah
Ah ni, ah ni, ah ni...

To ba f'owo kan mi
To ba f'owo kan mi
Jowo fi mi sile
Tabi kilo seri si e
O m'egbe ni, Ibo loti jawa
Ibo loti jawa
Ibo loti jawa to lokun lorun
Emi pelu re ko
Iro ni o, o fe se o oje lon'yo
Kelo se npe o

[Chorus]
Shakara oloje ni

Shakara oloje ni o...
