Tell Me The Story Of The Day

———- ———- ———-

When farming was the means of living

When no one cried for money like slots

When no one begged for food like goats

When everyone’s ego was caring for another.

Tell Me The Story Of The Day

———- ———- ———-

When everyone wears what was in vogue

When every king cares for the people he heads

When virtue and moral were the order of the day

_When unity was the secret to the growth we had._

Tell Me The Story Of The Day

———- ———- ———-

When ‘a naira’ surpassed ‘a dollar’ of then

When corruption was unknown to the people of Aso rock

When in Lagos we paid even in the absence of the owner

When the price of coke was cheeper than water.

Tell Me The Story Of The Day

———- ———- ———-

Will our glory return from its lost journey?

Will our defiled life regain her virginity?

Will our past heros’ story come back to life?

When security will be sure and we’ll tell tales at nights.

Tell Me The Story Of The Day

———- ———- ———-

I hope I’m alive when the tide turns right

I hope the song _’e go better’_ will boom

I hope the kerfuffle and hoo-ha shall stop

I hope we commit ‘our pledge’ to our hearts

Tell Me The Story Of The Day

———- ———- ———-

I call upon you! Arise O compatriot

The call of unity, please heed and obey

Only then we will thrive and our flag will smile

Only then will independence has its reason for real.
