Everything Scatter
Fela Kuti Lyrics


Na to ri?? I wan drag you??

Oo oo oo oo oo oo

One bus dey come now (woo woo woo woo woo)
It pass from the side (woo woo woo woo woo)?? Fela Kuti in public?? (woo woo woo woo woo)
One man inside the bus (woo woo woo woo woo)
Him start to yap (ya ya ya ya ya)
Him say "Look those people" (ye ye ye ye ye)
Them be ye-ye people (ya ya ya ya ya)
Them be amugbo people (ye ye ye ye ye)

One man come stand (ya ya ya ya ya)
Him say "Don't call them like that" (ye ye ye ye ye)
Them be my people (ya ya ya ya ya)

Before you know commotion don start
Big trouble, big argument
Big fight, big everything
Commotion de go, commotion de come
Fight de start, fight de stop
Trouble de turn round and round
Before conductor come vex, conductor come vex now (ya ya ya ya ya)
Him can hear everything (ye ye ye ye ye)
Him carry the bus (ya ya ya ya ya)
Him carry the passenger (ye ye ye ye ye)

Him say "Police station in ya oo" (re re oo, re re oo) X2

Ya Ya Ya Ya Ya - this country na wah (ya ya ya ya ya)
This country na wah (ye ye ye ye ye)

Him even start to yap (ya ya ya ya ya)
Ooroo wooroo for them front (ye ye ye ye ye)
Ooroo wooroo for them back (ya ya ya ya ya)

Him say "bring me the Fela people"
Make am lock am, charge am forgot
Before I shut (their) big mouth for am
Then I hand am to mosquito
That is how this country be, that is how this country be.
That is why everything dey scatter scatter, that is why everything dey scatter scatter X2
No wonder re re de ro?? make them yap (no wonder re re de ro)
No wonder re re de ro (no wonder re re de ro)
No wonder??? spread (?) the road (no wonder re re de ro)
No wonder??? de stop suddenly (no wonder re re de ro)
No wonder money no de flow (no wonder re re de ro)
No wonder people no get job (no wonder re re de ro)

No wonder re re de ro (no wonder re re de ro) X4.

I'm a Ghanaian and Fela was my idol growing up , I attended his concerts in Accra .I was even at the show that ended in a riot at Silver Cup in Accra when he played Zombie. Ghanaians love the Black President because he United Ghana and Nigeria with his by singing "Fefe na Efe" in Ghanaian language. He is the best African Musician ever and the UN should give him and Bob Farley a posthumous awards in humanity.

Mobolaji Owoade

Totall agree best musician to come out of Nigeria

Suleiman Halim Sichumu

Afrobeat cleans the soul, lets continue to promote it.

RealADEX

His transition from telling story to narrate political affairs is genius

Syntyche Boba

Okey this strange but I got here because I’m studying international contract law and the affair was among the cases I was studying. Thanks to that I could discover this song.

Coco stahl

This is the best thing that came out of of Nigeria! Great sounds, musics, high-life jams! Just wish I would have toured Kalakuti Republic when I was there. Still can't imagine I lived less than 30 miles from this great icon!

Le Lion du Groove

one of his most fantastic tracks

Abayomi Alli

pascal62 to me, the best ever.
