"Opposite People" as written by and Fela Kuti....
Them go show o, them go show
Them go show themselves clear clear
Them go show o
Them go show o, them go show
Opposite people
Them go show themselves clear clear

[Chorus]
Them go show!

Anywhere them dey
Anywhere them dey
Them go show themselves

Everyone dey dance
Dey dance for enjoyment (Dey dance!)
Everyone dey talk
Dey talk for communication (Dey talk!)
Everyone dey hear
Dey hear for ideology (Dey hear!)
Everyone dey think
Dey think for him progress (Dey think!)

Now now but look am, him don show himself
Opposite people
I say look am, him don show himself
Opposite people
I say look am, him don show himself
Opposite people
I say look the thing him don show himself

Everyone dey dance, him go push
Everyone dey talk, him go shout
Everyone dey hear, him go sleep
Everyone dey think, him go drink

Everyone dey dance (Him go push!)
Everyone dey talk (Him go shout!)
Everyone dey hear (Him go sleep!)
Everyone dey think (Him go drink!)

See, him don show himself

Him go dey shakara
Him go dey katakata
Him go dey shakara

[Chorus]
Him go dey shakara!
Him go dey katakata!
Him go dey shakara!

Them don show themselves
Opposite people
Them don show themselves

Him go dey shakara
Him go dey katakata

Him go dey shakara
Katakata put am together
