My better Nigeria
Giants of Africa we are
No i think we're supposed to be
Cause the giant has come to a crumbling fall
And our journey comes to a crawl
How could this have been
When we're the major supplier of oil and electricity in Africa
Oh my dear mother Nigeria
Where are the gains of our battles for independence
Your child Fela Would turn in his grave if he saw how everything he warned us about comes out to play
And your son Idris Abdulkareem ?
Oh how he tried also to direct our paths from these trying times
No one even knows what happened to him till today
And the big time African China?
I can't even begin to explain how his songs were a tribute to the situation you were and still facing mother
Now we watch as old rapes young
Fathers and daughters in unspeakable situations
Citizens rights trampled upon
Our mother's name in disrepute
Tax payers sweat into shopping sprees
Our own oil we even buy at exorbitant rates
Don't even get me started on electricity and our roads
Why say all this you ask me mother?
I say this to remind myself,you, yes you, and you there
That we can't keep watching our mother rot away at the hands of these of these hyenas drab in a shepherds costume
I know it sounds and looks like mount Everest but together we have a strong stand
Just imagine the likes of 2face idibia
We have lots of strong voices who can be the Fela and Idris of our generation
What do i have to gain from this you ask mother ?
If you are in the best condition mother
I have no reason to go look for greener pastures in another's land
Cause I'd have everything i could ever need right here
