Zombie
Fela Kuti Lyrics


Zombie o, zombie (zombie o, zombie)
Zombie o, zombie (zombie o, zombie)

Zombie no go go, unless you tell 'em to go (zombie)
Zombie no go stop, unless you tell 'em to stop (zombie)
Zombie no go turn, unless you tell 'em to turn (zombie)
Zombie no go think, unless you tell 'em to think (zombie)

Zombie o, zombie (zombie o, zombie)
Zombie o, zombie (zombie o, zombie)

Zombie no go go, unless you tell 'em to go (zombie)
Zombie no go stop, unless you tell 'em to stop (zombie)
Zombie no go turn, unless you tell 'em to turn (zombie)
Zombie no go think, unless you tell 'em to think (zombie)

Zombie o, zombie (zombie o, zombie)
Zombie o, zombie (zombie o, zombie)

Tell them to go straight
A joro, jara, joro
No break, no job, no sense
A joro, jara, joro
Tell 'em to go kill
A joro, jara, joro
No break, no job, no sense
A joro, jara, joro
Tell them to go quench
A joro, jara, joro
No break, no job, no sense
A joro, jara, joro

Go and kill (joro, jaro, joro)
Go and die (joro, jaro, joro)
Go and quench (joro, jaro, joro)
Put 'em for reverse (joro, jaro, joro)
Go and quench (joro, jaro, joro)
Go and kill (joro, jaro, joro)
Go and die (joro, jaro, joro)
Put 'em for reverse (joro, jaro, joro)
Go and die (joro, jaro, joro)
Go and quench (joro, jaro, joro)
Go and kill (joro, jaro, joro)
Put 'em for reverse (joro, jaro, joro)

Uh-huh
Joro, jara, joro
Zombie wey na one way
Joro, jara, joro
Zombie wey na one way
Joro, jara, joro
Zombie wey na one way
Joro, jara, joro

This music was the making of Fela; not least for the brutal reaction of the Nigerian Army to his critique of their behaviour. I remember listening to the music as a 12 year old and saying to myself 'Oh, Fela will get into trouble for this.' And he sure did, But nobody imagined a 1000 soldiers matching on Kalakuta, manhandling his mother leading to her death, and destroying all copies of his original work to date ... Army Arrangement, Teacher Don't Teach Me Nonsense, Original Sufferhead and Beast of No Nation in the 80s are testimonies to Fela's irrepressive sense of fairness and justice for all of his countrymen. No hyperbole, Yoruba myself, Fela is my favourite Yoruba man and African. The Lord bless you for daring to speak truth to power. Rest in Peace - Anikulapo

@Ayo Paul Why would you accuse this person of lying? Many 12 year old's are pretty observant and woke. I was 12 when the Vietnam War was declared "over", and I heard it on the radio before my parents and ran to tell them. I didn't believe it, because it had had gone on my whole life. My parents were skeptical, too, told me we would have to wait and see.
I was only 7 when MLK was murdered, but still remember how my mom cried and I knew we lost a great man. I still remember the Kent State massacre when I was 9, and understood then why it was such a travesty. Mostly because my parents didn't shield me from the evil of the world and taught me that oppressive governments are wrong.
That's why I wasn't fooled by DJT. My mom passed more than 20 years ago, but I remember over 30 years ago she couldn't stand his ass. She would change the channel if it showed him blathering about something. She hated him for how he treated his wife, and the racist crap he spouted even then. Mama had a great built-in bullshit detector.
Mama also taught me to love World music. An early memory is watching Miriam Makeba perform "Pata Pata" on "Ed Sullivan Hour", and seeing mom dance the "Pata Pata" in the kitchen later, humming that catchy tune. I STILL love this song, it's my favorite anti-depressant!
