Water No Get Enemy
by Fela Kuti

T'o ba fe lo we omi l'o ma'lo
If you wan' go wash, na water you go use

T'o ba fe se'be omi l'o ma'lo
If you want cook soup, na water you go use

T'o ri ba n'gbona o omi l'ero re
If your head dey hot, na water go cool am

T'omo ba n'dagba omi l'o ma'lo
If your child dey grow, na water he go use

If water kill your child, na water you go use
T'omi ba p'omo e o omi na lo ma'lo

Ko s'ohun to'le se k'o ma lo'mi o
Nothing without water
Ko s'ohun to'le se k'o ma lo'mi o
Omi o l'ota o

Water, him not get enemy!
Omi o l'ota o
Water, him not get enemy!
If you fight am, unless you wan die
Water, him not get enemy!
I say water no get enemy
Water, him not get enemy!
If you fight am, unless you wan die
Water, him not get enemy!
Omi o l'ota o
Water, him not get enemy!
I dey talk of Black man power
Water, him not get enemy!
I dey talk of Black power, I say
Water, him not get enemy!
I say water no get enemy
Water, him not get enemy!
If you fight am, unless you wan die
Water, him not get enemy!
I say water no get enemy
Water, him not get enemy!
I say water no get enemy
Water, him not get enemy!
Omi o l'ota o
Water, him not get enemy!
Omi o l'ota o
Water, him not get enemy!

I used to think that he was the Nigerian Bob Marley, then I realized that Bob was the Jamaican Fela Kuti!

​@shevah morris "Fela wasn't "for Nigeria", he was for black culture. And he refused to compromise his message. Listen carefully. Peace."

Siti Maan  REAL TALK. HEED THE MESSAGE EACH PUT FORTH. AND IF IT STILL MATTERS TO YOU FIRST LISTEN AND HEAR EACH OF THE FULL ANTHOLOGIES OF BODY OF WORK FROM BOTH PAN AFRICAN MUSICAL GENIUSES. THEN AND ONLY THEN ARE YOU EDUCATED ENOUGH TO SHARE AN OPINE OF WHICH YOU BELIEVE TO BE BETTER THAN THE OTHER. GIVE US YOUR DISSERTATION THAT YOU MAY ELEVATE THE AUDIENCE TO ENLIGHTENMENT THAT IS MISSING IN THE CURRENT DISCUSSION. HOWEVER I AM OF THE MINDSET ONCE YOU HAVE HEARD THE ENTIRE CATALOGS AND COMPREHEND THE MESSAGE FROM BOTH MESSENGERS YOU WILL REALIZE IT IS YOURSELF THAT WILL BE FREE FROM NARROW THINKING AS YOUR HEART HAS ROOM FOR BOTH. THERE IS A SIMILAR TYPE OF G.O.A.T. DISCUSSING OF JORDAN VS. KOBE LIFE FELA/MARLEY. IT DEPENDS MORE OF WHO YOU ARE AND WHERE YOU COME FROM. EACH HAVE SHOWN GREATNESS EACH ARE THE CHAMPION OF THEIR PEOPLE BUT ONCE YOU STUDY THE ENTIRE REPERTOIRE OF BOTH IT WILL BECOME CLEAR TO YOU. FREE YOUR MIND AND YOUR ASS WILL FOLLOW. - PHOENIX
