No Agreement
Fela Kuti Lyrics


*(CHORUS) NO AGREEMENT TODAY, NO AGREEMENT
TOMORROW - 2X


I no go agree make my brother hungry, make I no talk
*(CHORUS) LA LA LA LA ! LA LA ! - [AFTER EACH LINE]
I no go agree make my brother jobless, make I no talk
I no go agree make my brother homeless, make I no talk

My grandpapa talk, your grandpapa talk
My grandmama talk, your grandmama talk
Your papa talk, my papa talk
My mama talk, your mama talk
Those wey no talk them they agree


I no go agree make my brother hungry, make I no talk
*(CHORUS) LA LA LA LA ! LA LA !


No agreement today, no agreement tomorrow
*(CHORUS) NO AGREEMENT TODAY, NO AGREEMENT TOMORROW – [AFTER EACH LINE]
No agreement now, later, never and ever

" 'the best band I've ever seen live...When Fela and his band eventually began to play, after a long, crazy build-up, I just couldn't stop weeping with joy. It was a very moving experience.'PAUL McCartney

...the length of his pieces, @Eric Talkington - way too long to be radio-friendly (it didn't help that he was staunchly anti-establishment in every way). The majors tried to make him compromise on length, but Fela would rather die than dilute his music or message. Now we have the internet, radio isn't that important and people are finally discovering what absolute musical gems Africa has to offer. I locked on in the 1970s. Peace.

Eric Talkington

I'll bet. Just listening is an amazing treat to the ears but live would be crazy. I'm sometimes surprised at who was influenced and or/liked Fela. De La Soul made an album with a handful of songs that sampled Fela and it was called Fela Soul. Clever name and awesome to hear his music sampled and reworked. Love it. I can't understand how more people don't know him. I wish I could teach a high school or even a college class just on music. I wouldn't need a text book. I'd teach people about blues and jazz and how they morphed into funk and soul and how they morphed into hip hop/Rap and classic rock and eventually alternative. I would teach the class for free I love it so much. I wish I had a 3 hour block on the radio on Sunday evenings on the radio too. Limited commercials and let me play whatever I want. If I want to play a 45 min song then so be it. I go deep into the music world. The so called deep cuts on the radio are onky about an inch deep lol. They don't even know what a true deep cut really is.

My god that bass, that drummer, that keyboardist, and those epic horns. So good it should be illegal.

It could be illegal (today), but certainly shouldn't. But back in the day it indeed was LITERALLY illegal.

"Having helped enslave Nigerians during the colonial era, Fela believed that in the post-colonial era both Islam end Christianity continued to undermine African social and cultural values" - Man he was so right. Religion keeps dividing us. That never was Jesus' message

Lupe Bogi

It's true that God's message was lost throughout the ages because of religion, but true religion never divides the people. Imams and bishops through the mosques and churches did in the past and they still do it today.
I am a Christian myself, but I have equal respect for all the people with all their various religious faiths and beliefs, as long as they are all tied to the universal message of kindness, positivity and love.

LOUIS OTIENO

Prophet I tell you

Tim McCarthy

RIGHT ON......he really wanted to get the People to return to their old ancestral ways, not the Christian based religions......LONG LIVE FELA......
