“Mammoney”


Ah.. ailowo lowo ajanilaya baba ijaya
(Nothing unsettles one like being flat broke)
After you thief thief finish
And after committing other unGodly atrocities
You go mosque on Friday, Allah Akbar
You go church on Sunday, Alleluyah
You deceive yourself that you worship God
You can quote all the verses of the holy book
But as long as corruption full your soul
Verily, verily, I say unto you
You worship not the living God
But the biggest idol in the whole world
.
Who do you worship? Orisa mammoney orisa?
Search your soul
You worship money
Dollar dollar, Yen yen ??baba cash
Pound pound, Euro euro?.cash cash
Cefa cefa, Cedi cedi
Rand rand, Naira naira
.
You thief all the money carry abroad
Building foreign economy while the people suffer in penury
You claim to worship God
You fool nobody but yourself
For the creator sees the soul
Break it down, break it down
Doth sayeth the Lord
No man can serve two masters
Either he would hate the one and serve the other
Or else he would hold to the one and despise the other
Ye cannot serve God and mammoney
Do you worship God or do you worship money
Further sayeth the Lord
Thou shall have no other God but me
.
Is money serving you or you serving money?
You spending money or money spending you?
After your prosperity, do you share aplenty?
Would you wait until your deathbed to look back and realise
Oh all is vanity?
Verily, verily, I say unto you
They worship not the living God
But the biggest idol in the whole world
.
Who do you worship? Orisa mammoney orisa?
Search your soul
Do you worship money?
Dollar dollar, Yen yen ??baba cash
Pound pound, Euro euro?.cash cash
Cefa cefa, Cedi cedi
Rand rand, Naira naira
Search your soul
Search your soul
You claim to worship God
You fool nobody but yourself
For the creator sees the soul
