'Ancestor, ati Cabasa, coded tunes, alapomeji
Ancestor, Cabasa,

Chorus
Agbatan la n gba omo Ole baba ( A lazy man has to be completely helped)
Ise ta ba fi ran e o’gara (Any assignment for you is tough)
Awon temi ni gboro won para (my people in the streets are getting angry)
Won ni ko dami loun kiakia (They say you should answer them quickly)
Osha ti ri pe mo capable (You’ve seen that im capable)
I want to be unstoppable
Ninalowo Im available (Money is to be spent, Im available)
O’gara baba o’gara (Its tough baba, Its tough)

Verse1:
Manner from heaven yi ma dun, Baba, Baba O dun (This manner from heaven is sweet)
Favour from heaven yi ma po, Baba O po (This favour from heaven is much)
Baba jewo agbara re o, dakun wa le (2x) (Baba please prove yourself and come down)
My will no pure like a prodigal son
But you don’t care, na me you favour
Ever since gongo aso
People dey wait for another favour
You lead the way, I follow go
Anything you say, I obey o
Emi la o ni yo si? Baa she fe o ri, beena lo ri (Why wont we celeberate?, what we wished for has finally happened)

Chorus

Verse 2
E ranti jona ninu omi? (You remember Jonah in the sea?)
Ninu Eja (In the belly of the Shark)
Baba lo ni ipa ati agbara (God alone has the power and might)
Unto Him I surrender
Won ni mo n so woto (The say im blabbling)
Wowo woro bi eni to je lotto (Twiddling like someone who just won a lotto)
I know what I’m going through
E be like soja man koboko (Just like a soldier’s horsewhip)
I dey sweat, I dey cry but e no dey show
I dey fast, I dey pray for my tomorrow
I wan to dey give, I no wan borrow
Ta ba jeko, a dari ji ewe o (we eat pap-pudding in a leaf and not the leaf)
Make you bless me make den know
Rumour mongers I Go bury them
Noise-makers I go maichonu dem
Baba tete she, iwo l’atobiju (Baba please prove yourself, you are the greatest)

Chorus

Verse 3
Igba kan, mo ti shan ko lo ri (Once upon a time, I wandered about aimlessly)
Igba kan, mo je ko lo bi eran to so nu (Once upon a time, I wondered away like a lost goat)
So fun ti o ba sina ri (Tell me if you’ve not been lost before)
Ese Odo bi oba lo n yo (So many mistakes during youthful days)
Even bus conductor get ambition
All you need is some foundation
Don’t give room for omission
Don’t listen to speculation
Listen to your heart, na your motivation
Almighty God na your solution

Chorus (2x)
Agbatan la n gba omo Ole baba ( A lazy man has to be completely helped)
