Shebi meka tamoa
Say my pikin no go join cult
You want to bam ba
You wanna chill with the big boys
Na you dey run kiti kiti
You dey run keta keta
No fit drink water drop cup
Shebi you see how the thing goes
Ameno, oma nare imperavi ameno (I say tell a man who blend you)
Dimere, dimere, mantiro (and who ?, and who ?)
Mantire mo, ameno
Oma nare imperavi emu nare, ameno
Oma nare imperavi emu nare
Ameno, ameno do re
Ameno dori me
Ameno dori me
Dori me reo (Okay)
Ameno dori me (Okay come on lets go)
Ameno dori me (Ah okay).
