Trouble Sleep Yanga Wake Am
Fela Kuti Lyrics


When trouble sleep
Yanga go wake am
Waking him dey find
Palaver, he dey find
Palaver, he go get-e o)
Palaver, he go get
Palaver

When cat sleep
Rat go bite him tail
Waking him dey find
Palaver, he dey find
Palaver, he go get-e o
Palaver, he go get
Palaver

Tenant lost him job
Him sit down for house
Him dey think of job
Mr. landord come wake am up
He say, "mister, pay me your rent"
Waking him dey find
Palaver, he dey find
Palaver, he go get-e o
Palaver, he go get
Palaver

My friend just come from prison
Him dey look for work
Waka waka day and night
Police man come stop am for road
He say, "mister, I charge you for wandering"
Waking him dey find
Palaver, he dey find
Palaver, he go get-e o
Palaver, he go get
Palaver

Mr. husband marry for church
He make big party
Then he start to spra
Because him love him wife
Him say, "wife come run away"
Bank manager run come
He say, "mister, pay me your debt"
Waking him dey find, for lagos e-o
Palaver, he dey find
Palaver, he go get-e o
Palaver, he go get
Palaver

When trouble sleep
Yanga go wake am
Waking him dey find
Palaver, he dey find
Palaver, he go get-e o
Palaver, he go get
Palaver, he go get-e o

When cat sleep
Rat go bite him tail
Waking him dey find
Palaver, he dey find
Palaver, he go get-e o
Palaver, he go get
Palaver, he go get e-o

He is the greatest .I grew in Africa and was raised with Fela's music. No one can compare himself to Fela. He is the King of Afrobeat. You are always alive trough Femi and Seun. Thank you ever so much for the heritage you left us.
