Mr. Follow Follow
*[CHORUS] FOLLOW, FOLLOW, FOLLOW,- FOLLOW, FOLLOW,
FOLLOW

Some dey follow follow, dem close dem eye
*[CHORUS] DEM CLOSE EYE, PIN- PIN- PIN
Some dey follow follow, dem close dem mouth
*[CHORUS] DEM CLOSE MOUTH, PAM- PAM- PAM
Some dey follow follow, dem close dem ear
*[CHORUS] DEM CLOSE EAR, G′BOING- BOING- BOING
Some dey follow follow, dem close dem sense
*[CHORUS] DEM CLOSE SENSE, BIRI- BIRI

I say dem close sense,
Dem close sense

If you dey follow follow
Make you open eye, open ear, open mouth, open sense

Na dat time
Na dat time you no go fall

If you dey follow follow dem book
*[CHORUS] NA INSIDE CUPBOARD YOU GO QUENCH

Coakroach dey, ee-rat dey, Ikan dey, darkness dey- ee
*[CHORUS] NA INSIDE CUPBOARD YOU GO QUENCH
(Destroy)

My brothers, make you no follow book-o
Look am and go your way

*[CHORUS] FOLLOW, FOLLOW (on 3,4- continues until end)

Make you open eye, open ear, open mouth, open sense

My brothers, make you no follow book-o
Look am and use your sense

One thing I appreciate so much is how Fela was able to make his music and songs with lyrics is the ability to sing it forward and backward without missing one beat! Majority of his songs are played from front to back and back to front extending the song upwards to 30 minutes long! Talent! If you listen carefully, exactly how the song starts out is how it ends, low key mellow strokes of the keyboards or sax or strings and the big congo drums gives it that funk appeal!

Yes ,.I agree talent and preparation and hence the results. Talent is like salt production or preparation is just like iodine in that salt.so there we are ,,,the man was good .this fact cant be negated.
