FOKN Ode To Ghana

by FOKN Bois

Mic thirst 1 2 drink water Whether pure river rain or tap water Solar power b ecg e step daughter no dey feel am like e dey fill generator Buy pe trol pay toll then patrol Hey! let's go power show see koti o Junkies donkeys alcoholic monkeys U wan kiss, giv me president john's keys Pot holes pot heads pot makers Coal pot Potpourri nu mai pot Ex pats, street hawkers accra shakers Hey stop talk to me blowin rot Mpatoa actors small fishes Construct tractors carbozyllic dishes Gmo ama epa ngo Wer e go e fly o go up o envy oh
Dey say mek we watch the road wey we say we tire We just wan mine the gold then fire 2 cold as we grow 2 old 2 inspire E b 2fold 2 fold cash B the desire 
 We commot wana eyes 4 road top e take we go china import wana presidential palace from india The symbol on the wall outside no b adinkra dey serve we miso soup u dey take aponkye kakra No dey respect we dey sweat u dey in nyanya jet Com c the way plastic full up the fisherman e net Sakawa save my life, wey other chance i get? Like i no take my school fees chillop like i go regret Fuck parents wey dey tink say the teacher always b right monkey go close e eye n lash u if u show am light Donkey seff no dey chew grass in d middle of d night Black honkey playin violin wit d fiddle of a white Wot a shitty pitiful sight ridicule bites Stolen jeggins on som mosquito azonto ready 2 fight U mek i mek ma paddies jealous Yet u say we b the same Hard to dey in yor lane if yor driver e name b skin pain 
 things no dey be But we dey pretend Say we dey live the highlife Yeh yeh yeh 2X 
 Dem dey off the lights so say we no go fit c the cocaine Den close the pipe so say we no fit wash away the stain keep the roads all roff so say we go make late police cashiers, barriers now b toll gate MInisters corrupt den u catch abodam for puff U seff u high c yor red eye like period cloth But all b wana fault coz we get the sea wey we dey import salt Den cross wana leg suck malt 
 The price of lies The price of lies dey rise The prize be rice To mice e dey taste nice
V1: Once upon a time there was an elephant in ghana with the biggest head It was so big its pillow was a double king sized bed It had a very short body, its eyes wer very red It loved limestone n its spectacle lenses wer made of lead It spoke with a polar bears accent to goats who wanted to be llamas It promised to start serving sushi at all ghana's la palmas But the chicken didnt pay attention they were busily watching the ostriches Promising to teach them to fly like guinea fowl to their bosses riches 
 Mario Sonic U dey play games Chess Dami Still dey play games Hide & seek 4 corners Shun dey play games 
 V2: The dollar rise like ma prick Coz ma president be dick Actually e b john b like e name seff too b john So so ronnin e dey ron Trouble com den e ron So so finger pointing All so dissappointing To me the most annoying thing Pastors demma annointing lotto doctor win lottery Preachers no want earn Teachers just wan learn Doctor no wan u sick Still trust yor mechanic? I no wan b star Just follow ma twitter No dey hia any fans Just like ma instagrams Ma facebook friends chaw So like ma page rather No dey roll with crowd But stumble on ma tumblr 
If man no fit move mountain Wey mountain no move to man Den man 4 create mountain Exactly wer mountain man dey stand Many go understand few go overstand 1 or 2 go stand More recipies n spices 4 chefs dema chow b bland 
 Man of the house Talk of the town King of the streets The tribes chief Settling beef Peddling reef Meddling thieves Rebel in briefs Sippin tea of nettle leaves steamin, till the kettle heaves Blows & whistles Crows & pistols Guns & flowers Bums & showers Ebola proof Cholera booth Corrolla roof Malaria tooth My area youth u better rise & stop looking very aloof We don't see why Chale We want peace ...tins no be alright ...now we start dey bore Isis crisis Paris slices Ice is priceless Christ is lifeless televise with spices A back pack man No back up plan pack up a gun Dey back up a van Buck buck buck the bataclan 
 F.O.K.N Ode to G.H.A.N.A This be what FOKN Bois have to say Make Dey listen 8x
Den the way e skin dark Lupita seff take yor boddi Like charcoal n coal tar n dzidzi n yoryee Som alo pastor spot am wan chew am wan chop am Tell am say e dey see darkness Invite am prayer camp fok u motherfucker go fok yor bleached wife plus e akukor permin hair dont joke plus ma life U dey talk about the son yet u dey run from am I dey live in the sun i b part of am i no get no white god in case sizzla no tell u Go boff for river densu coz i dey smell u Pray giv me if u wish yes yes i b witch But u no fit prey on me coz i no b no stupid fish 
 children of the sun come come If u've bleached dier chale run hide 
 Or go buy umbrella Stellas color inter stelar Now e jus b stelar hidin in a cellar Toning cream seller Cant u see keller Helen is smelling ah No one is telling her Accent from kenya Absence of dermia Vitilago vertigo in the villagio Burnt face o decrease ratio of felatio Step on brakes b4 flesh bakes n heart breaks Not on rakes gives shakes like snakes n earthquakes Den u b so vain Now u make so veiny Just coz of skin pain Now yor skin dey pain me why u dey weaken yor boat wey e dey hold yor water? Wot is keepin u afloat as the world dey get hotter? bleaching yor daughter aminata with alata samina Dat u mixed with hydrochloric acid obtained from fatima Pure Child abuse end times signs Debilitating destruction of divine design i guess we truly are gods self punishing Astonishingly, still polishing despite admonishing
