9JA We Hail Thee

Awa constitution promise to shield us from harm
Awa gofament says there is really no cause for alarm
But everyday na so so gbosaaa from boko haram
Pastor dey point accusing finger towards Imam

Residing in Nigeria nor be beans nor fried yam
Eking out a living nor be sliced bread and jam
You have to carry tough horn for head like ram
And life go dey push you about like pikin pram

Boys don leave better pursuit for mail with spam
Girls dey help their own ministry with ikebe scam
Families don full embassies dem dey plan to scram
To anywhere, go meet Iya Charlie or even Uncle Sam

Arewa youth say dem ready for war, say dem bam
Asari Dokubo dey im side dey form Van Damme
Mass failure for Waec, Neco, same thing for Jamb
Awa presido nko, im kukuma dont give a damn

If we try do elections e must to end for sham
Person wey study Aeronatics dey hussle for farm
If them do any project na so so gbege and qualm
If corruption na tennis, na we for win grand slam
