Our brown army of roofs were shivery and dehydrated
When they came visiting
It was indeed a divine sanction
Boundless torrents came visiting
But why's our street the chosen one?
Our possessions aren't seductive enough
But we have beautiful set of people
Who'll stand at the edge of gutters
To welcome you with bags you'll take away
And we also have children who'll chant your praise
Till you decide to leave.
Our guests finally arrived
They brought for us Crabs and Fishes
And parceled it out
While they were leaving
We gave them our lives to merry upon
"Water e no get enemy" Fela swore
Our visitors visited the affluent
They brought them Crabs and Fishes
Just like us
And also took their lives
Alas! Our street which used to envy the island is now an island
The rain did not forget what he kept with us
"The rainy day savings"
They made the visit a memorable experience.
