Shakara
Fela Kuti Lyrics


To ba b'oni sakara pade
Pasan to ma fi na e oje l'o nje
Kini won se npe o
Shakara oloje ni

Shakara oloje ni

Shakara oloje ni o

We get the Shakara man
We get the Shakara woman
Shakara man, him go say
"I go beat you, I go nearly kill you"

Na Shakara, I go beat you
You go be like you get accident
Na Shakara

You no know me, na Shakara
Wait make I commot my dress
Na Shakara

You see, even if you do nothing
Na Shakara oloje
We get a song for that
We dey sing am like this, we go say
Ah, ah, ah ni, ah ni, ah ni

Ma kan na e, ma kan na e pa
Iwo ke, oti mo mi ni
To ba to ko duro de mi o

Duro de mi ki'nbo so mi
Wa je baba nla iya iro ni o ko le ja
Oje lo nyo, kini won se npe o

Shakara oloje ni

Shakara oloje ni o

The Shakara woman
Tell am say, "My dear I like you"
She go say, "You like who?, who you like?"

Commot jare, look at this man
Why you come from self?
Non be me and you, no touch me o

Ah, you see, she wan do
Na Shakara
We dey call am Shakara oloje

We get a song for that
We sing am like this, we go sing
Ah, ah, ah ni, ah ni, ah ni

To ba f'owo kan mi
To ba f'owo kan mi
Jowo fi mi sile, tabi ki lo nse e
O m'egbe ni, nibo loti jawa

Nibo loti jawa
Nibo loti jawa to lokun lorun
Emi pelu re ko
Ah ah, Iro ni o, o fe se o oje lon'yo
Kini won se npe o

Shakara oloje ni

Shakara oloje ni o
