Let's Start
Fela Kuti Lyrics


We're gonna start our live recording right now
We gonna play for you our first tune tonight
It's gonna be about four tunes
And the first tune is called
O l'oun t'awa se n'yara
Je k'abere
Now, which means...
Let's start what we have come into the room to do
(Fela chuckles)
Right on

Here goes...
One, two, three

Ehn, ehn, eh, oh, oh
