(Spoken - Fela Kuti)
I'm gonna to play for you our first tune tonight
It's going to be about four tunes
And the first tune, here it goes:

(Verse 1)
Now when them fights go down
Them lights go down
In villas and the village people might be round
They say that all the people gonna like me now
Because I'm talking 'bout the issues in this life we found

All through the country is people getting slain
Priority religion disobey get hanged
I know some little kids quick to get militant
Just give them packs of the gum
They really feel eclipse

They told me not to worry 'bout the struggle
And they don't gotta worry 'cause it's subtle
Tell 'em about the government taking away the light
Aviation is ruined they safe when you take a flight

Safe when you take it- the continent from the white man through
White man colonize wealth can't do
They fly G5 but they gotta land too
We explode like the landmines that they ran through

Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

(Verse 2)
So we try palm trees in the sky
It's a beautiful day
I'm just happy to be alive
I'm playing with slingshots from renewable goods

Think you got it tough just because you in the hood?
I'm positive you would be in upset mode
When you wear the same thing like you got a dress code

And yes I am guilty of being privileged
'Cause while I'm in the booth my cousin is in the village

I seen a boy with no father
His mom ain't around life's harder
Pick up soccer he trying to go farther
Hair is a mess can't find him no barber

And this is what it's like
When you ain't got a life
I'm all they got left
But they trying to do right
And they feel my plight
I'm giving them insight
I know we gotta win
So then fly me a kite


(Verse 3)
We get by
The weather is just right
Say good morning when I see you
'Cause I gotta be polite
And I'm living something different
Cause this can't be the life
And you don't got a chance, better focus on your plans

I try to grind like children that sell pure water
The land of the lawless, more slaughter
Negotiate the price, I'll take your offer
In the market where they sell them, what did that cost her?

I try to chase the gold out here
But honestly it's bumpy like the roads out here
And I advise if your salary is handsome
Ngbona Feli Feli they will hold you for ransom

If you gotta take a glimpse of my family life
You would lose your mind- Chris Brown on Grammy night
And this is what the news don't show
There's nothing on the plate so the dudes don't grow


(Spoken - Chiddy)
You see what this is man?
We done came through all types of odds
We still got people over there right now
You know what I'm saying?
I'm doing this for my cousin Remi
I see you
We gonna make it out the village one day
Sooner... later
