Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

(Skondtrack) uh
Back then, uh

Back then dem no feel us
The way dem no take a man serious
I just keep on moving never giving up
Now all my dreams I'm living up
Now dem dey find us like one plot for Pinnock
The way dem dey chop am like peanut
Dem be like zino no go kill us
Save us Jesus

Ah, emi eyan yanyanyan
Obewa mosare fun ni banana
Owa felo pe mama wa o
Omo tun lowun ma pada wa o
Ah, I can't shout
No CD mosare lo santana
She sabi ball odabi kagawa
Olemi mori biti bandana

Ewa etie duro na o
Se fe sope omo yen gan o gbona o
Ema jeki studio yi jona o
Ema jeki studio yi jona o (jona o)
Lowo yi mon kanra o
Awa lomo ti o sonu to n wa o
Ki anybody mafowo kan nkan wa o
Awa lomo ti o sonu to n wa o

Se emi Zino ti o nice
If I see something wey I like
I go wan know the price
Make my temperature dey rise
(You don't know me)
I don't know myself
They have no idea
What's going on in my head
Going on in my head

Ah, emi eyan yanyanyan
Obewa mosare fun ni banana
Owa felo pe mama wa o
Omo tun lowun ma pada wa o
Ah, I can't shout
No CD mosare lo santana
She sabi ball odabi kagawa
Olemi mori biti bandana

Ewa etie duro na o
Se fe sope omo yen gan o gbona o
Ema jeki studio yi jona o
Ema jeki studio yi jona o
Lowo yi mon kanra o
Awa lomo ti o sonu to n wa o
Ki anybody mafowo kan nkan wa o
Awa lomo ti o sonu to n wa o

(Duro na o)
(Se fe sope omo yen gan o gbona o)
(Ema jeki studio yi jona o)
(Ema jeki studio yi jona o)
