J'Ehin J'Ehin
Fela Kuti Lyrics


This tune is called j′ehin, j'ehin
Which in broken English means chop teeth, chop teeth
Somebody who eat, eats his teeth
And only a fool can eat his teeth
Here goes
J′ehin, j'ehin groove the afro-beat tune
Ha, ha

J'ehin j′ehin oh, wa ma ba ti e lo o
Wa ma ba ti e lo o, ono re o
Ma lo

J′ehin, j'ehin o, wa ma ba oshi ti e lo o
Wa ma ko oshi e lo o, ono re o
Ma lo, hey

Mo fun l′obirin ikini o, o lo fe o
Mo fun e l'obirin ekeji, o lo fe
Mo fun e l′ketaa, o'lofe o
Mo fun l′obirin e'kerin o lo fe o
Ma lo o, ono wa o papo

Mofun l'obirin a′karun o, o lo fe o
Mo fun e l′obirin e'kefa o lo fe
Mo fun l′ekeje, o wa oro so o
Mo fun e l'kejo, o ri nkan so
Ma lo o, ono wa o papo
Kilo fi se ti e o, ono wa o papo

Oh, oh
Now I′m gonna change the rhythm of this thing now
Gonna change the rhythm so get ready
And get in the groove, still in the same thing
Just get in the groove, here goes now, listen
Here goes now
Hey, oh
Hey, oh, hey, oh, hey

Hey, hey, hey

Ma lo o, ono wa o papo
Wa ma lo o, ono wa o papo
Wa ma lo o, ono wa o papo
Wa ma lo o, ono wa o papo
Wa ma lo o, ono wa o papo
Wa ma lo o, ono wa o papo

Wa ma lo o, ono wa o papo
Wa ma lo o, ono wa o papo
Wa ma lo o, ono wa o papo
Wa ma lo o, ono wa o papo
Hey, ahn-ha
