Gentlemen
Fela Kuti Lyrics


I no be gentleman at all
I no be gentleman at all
I no be gentleman at all o
I no be gentleman at all, at all

I no be gentleman at all o!

I be Africa man original
I be Africa man original
Them call you, make you come chop
You chop small, you say you belly full
You say you be gentleman
You go hungry
You go suffer
You go quench
Me I no be gentleman like that

I no be gentleman at all o!

I be Africa man original
I be Africa man original
I be Africa man original

You dey go your way, the jeje way
Somebody come bring original trouble
You no talk, you no act
You say you be gentleman
You go suffer
You go tire
You go quench
Me I no be gentleman like that

I no be gentleman at all o!

I be Africa man original
I be Africa man original

Africa hot, I like am so
I know what to wear but my friends don′t know
Him put him socks, him put him shoe
Him put him pant, him put him singlet
Him put him trouser, him put him shirt
Him put him tie, him put him coat
Him come cover all with him hat
Him be gentleman
Him go sweat all over
Him go faint right down
Him go smell like shit
Him go piss for body, him no go know
Me I no be gentleman like that

I no be gentleman at all o!

I be Africa man original
I be Africa man original
I no be gentleman at all, at all
I be Africa man original
I be Africa man original

Rodrig, you are my brother, because I recognise that the spirit of the music lives in you. Your statement reminds me of what Fela's European promoter, Jose Avantario, an Italian, told me about Fela. ...hear him " Fela calls me Avantario my friend. ....if only he knew that to me, Fela was my god. ....deity" .... this conversation to place at Fela's Afrika Shrine in Ikeja, Lagos in 1998 at the occasion of One-year anniversary of Fela's passing. ....
