She go say, she go say, "I be lady, oh"

She go say, "I be lady, oh"

She go say, "Market woman na woman"

For am, for kitchen

She want salute man

Call am for dance

She know him man na master
She go cook for am
She go do anything he say

But lady, no be so
But lady, no be so
But lady, no be so
But lady, no be so

Lady na master
Lady na master

TRANSLATION and ANALYSIS: from

https://www.msafropolitan.com/2013/08/african-feminist-analysis-fela-lady.html
TRANSLATION:
If you call her a woman an African woman will not listen
She will tell you she is a lady



*CHORUS*: She will tell you she is a lady (repeated several times)



Let me tell you about this “lady”
She believes she is equal to men
She believes she is as powerful as men
She will tell you that she can do anything men can do
Let me tell you

She is not ashamed of smoking in front of anyone

She demands that you open doors for her
She expects her man to do the dishes in her kitchen
She will sit down on a chair before saluting a man
