Go Slow
Fela Kuti Lyrics


Go slow, go slow

Go slow, go slow!

Go slow, go slow
Go slow, go slow
Go slow, go slow
Go slow, go slow

Man must be man for him land o
I say, man must be man for him land o
You must agree with me
Man must dey work for him land o
You must agree with me
Man must dey chop for him land o
You must agree with me

When go slow catch you for your house

Go slow, go slow!

Go slow, go slow
Go slow, go slow
Go slow, go slow
Go slow, go slow

Ole make yeye!

When go slow catch you for your house
When go slow catch you for your house
When go slow catch you for your house

You dey make your business every day
Then your head start to ache
Because car crush dey for your head
Your nose start to run
Because water pour cool for your head
You dey cough cough every time
Because carbu air dey for your throat
You dey shaking shaking like a paper
Because your yansh cold like ice
Go slow catch you

Go slow, go slow!

Go slow don't come
Go slow, go slow
Go slow, go slow

You dey make your business every day
Then you buy your motor car
Or you join your public transport
Then you start to go for work
Then suddenly, suddenly, suddenly
Lorry dey for your front
Tipa dey for your back
Motorcycle dey for your left o
Taxi-moto dey for your right
Helicopter dey fly fly for your top o
You self don dey for cell
Go slow catch you

Go slow, go slow!

Go slow don't come
Go slow, go slow
Go slow, go slow

The intro of the song is just pure Genius if you truly appreciate music, you'll understand what I'm saying.

The intro to the version on Roforofo fight is sublime. When the bass drum kicks in under the beautiful electric piano high notes.

Lagos go slow.... Getting more worse! Nice tune Papa Fella.

For several months in the mid 70s this instrumental version of 'Go slow' used to be the closing glee at the Empire hotel Shrine. I believe Fela had a special liking for 'Go slow' and 'Power Show', both later used to end his shows as instrumentals or recorded twice. Very rare for Fela to record the same music twice or play them after recording.

@Olukayode Nathan Its actually an irony, that people who saw fela as a scourge in the system back then see him as a prophet now. I remember how I was always cautioned anytime i sing his music while growing up.
