"Confusion Break Bones"

I sing dis song some time ago
Call am confusion"
Then army never burn my house
Oil money flow for Lagos then (Larudu repeke)

Repeke Laru, Laru, laru (Larudu repeke)
Repeke Laru, My people dey say Nigeria done dey
But me as I see am
I no say, Nigeria go-go down
Our country go dey make-ee money

My people of country no see money (Larudu repeke)
Repeke Laru, Laru, laru (Larudu repeke)
I see many many things in Nigeria (Larudu repeke)
Some time ago I come sing one song (Larudu repeke)
Repeke Laru, Laru, laru (Larudu repeke)

When I say confusion
Everything out of-ee control
When everything out-ee of control-ee
Go be say, it Bafuka-oh (Bafuka na quench)
Bafuka fit be police station (Bafuka na quench)
Bafuka fi tbe hospital-u (Bafuka na quench)
I sing about one street for Lagos
Called Ojuelegba
I take a copy how Nigeria be
One crossroad in center town (Larudu repeke)
Repeke Laru, Laru(Larudu repeke)
Repeke Laru, Laru, laru

For Ojuelegba

Motodey come from-u East

And police-ee man no dey for center
Na confusion be dat ee-oh (Bafuka na quench)
Bafuka fit be police station (Bafuka na quench)
Bafuka fit be hospital (Bafuka na quench)

Den I say confusion na wait ee-oh (Confusion na why)
Confusion na wait ee-oh (Confusion na why)
After he go take, Police-ee Army come burn-u my house
After he go take, Police-ee Army come burn-u my house
I can't started to think
I started to think-ee think
Dey police wey go help people, not dem dey burn burn so
Say army wey go defend cities, not dem dey burn burn so
A na time around 1975 and '77
Police go seize expensive goods, dem start togo burn burn dem
Army go go market, and meeting cost money, go burn burn dem
Why dem like to burn the things wey dey cost-ee money?
Government fit sell to people cheap-ee cheap-ee
Government fit dash people, we no get-ee money
And di burn burn, na him dey sweet-ee dem pass
Na him dey sweet-ee dem pass

Oya oh, burn burn (Oya)
Oya oh dem burn burn (Oya)
Oya oh with petrol, burn burn (Oya)
Oya oh with matches, burn burn (Oya)
Oya oh, burn burn (Oya)
Oya oh, burn burn (Oya)

My problem is no small at all
Nothing dey for me to sing about
If something good today I go sing
Nothing good do self to sing about
Nothing good do self to sing
Only to say they ignore the good

If I sing-ee say, water no dey
Na old old old news be dat-ee-oh
If I sing I say food –u nothing
Na old old old news be dat-ee-oh
If I sing-ee say, Inf-i-lati-on
I come sing-ee say, electric -ee light no dey
Old old news be dat-ee-oh

I come sing-ee say, mismanagement
If
I come sing-ee say, corrup-u-tion
If I sing-ee say, stealing by government
Na old old old news be dat-ee-oh
Old old old news be dat-ee-oh

Di problems still dey ba'gba ra ‘gba
