You needn't tell me
I know what breathlessness is
Tell me it will get better
Broda, it just went worse.

Your getup is not complete today
Why did you leave your smile in a safe?

Your 'friend' came here again
Tales were told
Don't ask me what

Are you here again?
Today  no 1 cedi for you oo,
Masa, go find some job do.

So you! this 'chosh' kenkey too you won chop some?

With grumblings in my head
I walk the world with a smile on my face.

Keep to the right, keep to the right
The left people are coming by.

I gasp that first breath.

broda: play on the word Brother
masa: play on the word Master
