Water No Get Enemy
Fela Kuti Lyrics


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 just hopped into the car, and this ride already feels like the most magical thing I've discovered in a long time.

It was 1983 and I had just turned 21 when my late father, Charles Paul, presented me with three albums: Fela Kuti, Bob Marley, and Jimi Hendricks. He explained their similarities, differences, and purpose for existence. I still have all three, along with Bob Dylan. I'm good for life!
