Stalemate
Fela Kuti Lyrics


I explain,
Two heavy brothers dem sit down inside sun, dem the sweat,
Dem the share one bottle of beer between dem self.
Den one fine lady cum meet dem say brother abge buy me one bottle of
Beer na, dem go look dem self, look the woman,
Look dem pocket look dem suffer for Africa, dem go say stalemate.
I explain,
Two women bring argument 2 u, wer start from dem gossip,
Dem want make u give dem answer into dem gossip argument,
Or make u settle the matter wer u no knw the beginning or the end.
I explain,
Two hustlers come meet you dem wan hustle you,
And you self don see all the beginning and end of
The hustle they wan fall you. You go say hmmm stalemate.
...Instrumental ...
(End)

I was reading the synopsis about this song and why it was made. Fela "Baba" Kuti was truly an amazing talented revolutionary strong musician. He use to endure a lot. His music is a legacy that you can not stay away from. Truly an intelligent man. Black President, RIP. Glad I found out about him in my lifetime.
