Chop Money

Nigeria, Chop-Money, too much of Chop-Money
We are so rich, yet so poor
because everybody wants to Chop-Money
anyway, anyhow, no one really cares.

See the Politician, Chop-Money,
kills the innocent for his sacrifice
according to babalawo’s counsel,
campaigning, proclaiming love for country
Na lie, he is after the national reserves.

Policeman, Chop-Money,
always on duty, only at night,
trotting a rifle and his torchlight,
pay 20 naira – no either-or,
if you don’t want to find his trouble.

Federal Ministry of…., also Chop-Money
years upon years, their retirees are on ‘pension-processing’
Query upon query, no progressing,
but ‘see the secretary’ and see a miracle happen
give what they want and get what you want.

Bank attendant also Chop-Money:
‘sorry, you can’t withdraw this week,
our computer is out of order’
before leaving the bank, count your cash three times,
one-sided currencies, flowing like rain.

Bus driver and conductor, professional Chop-Money,
beware, you might be short-changed.
Worse is they say you never paid,
‘see me see trouble, early in the morning’
before you sort it out, you’re late for work.

Salesman, Chop-Money,
ask the price and he’ll assess you from head to toe,
the real price: divide what he says by three
see his mouth like fifty-naira,
looking to make 200 percent profit,
and he just calls it business.

Association here and there, Chop-Money,
they are just after your membership fee,
then they’ll give you seminars about the past,
welfare group here or there, all Chop-Money
forget it, they don’t care about you.

Wherever you go, it’s all Chop-Money,
for some, it’s written on their faces,
and others are betrayed by their talk,
some others still cover with various motives.
Where can I find a Nigerian, not Chop-Money
seeking a simple lifestyle with things just enough,
seeking knowledge, beholding a future bright,
someone who would want to make a difference,
to leave clear footprints for others to put their feet,
where is he, where is she, honest and true.
If you think you are one, then you are my friend.

Honey... Honey...

Honey… honey… I have money.
Enjoy the life is my only destiny.
Come on enjoy the life with me
Come on enjoy the life with me
Honey… honey… I have money.

Let’s go for a long-drive.
There, where is no tribe.
You me and the money
Let’s enjoy oh my Honey.

I have money… I have Brothers
I have money… I have Sisters
I have money… I have a Family
I have money… I have friends
I have money… So no relation ends
I have money… So worshiped daily
Honey… Honey… I have Money.
Enjoy the life is my only destiny.

Ask your daddy, ask your mummy.
Say, I am having enough money.
They will make you free.
As if they find a money tree.

Let me tell you I am also a human.
I am rich but not a superman.
I too have feelings and can’t stay alone.
All relations are fake you are true.
With you I feel the feeling of coffee BRU.
If doubt, ask to my mussel, Blood and Bone.
Honey… Honey… You are my money.
You are my path and you are my destiny.

Dollar, Euro, Pound, Yen, Dinar or Rupee currencies,
Money passion drives one deep even into the abyss!
Money passion never stops even the sea shrinks to nil
And ends not even camel goes through the eye of needle!

No one can fight in the court to win justice without money;
No one can run politics and win in election without money;
No one can get educated to live quality life without money;
No one can live life as wished in the world without money!

What is God – love or truth or justice or power or money?
Many opt for money as with money only everything is done!
Without money there is nothing in this material world;
Without spiritual grace there is no place in the other world!

As in God everything is contained in money in this world
Why there is so much passion for money let the futures tell!
But just way is first one should earn name by one’s work skill
And by perfection achieve position, power, fame and money!

Madam Jane

Money meks us bonny,
Money meks us glad;
Be she auld or ugly,
Money brings a lad.
When I'd ne'er a penny,
De'il a lad hed I--
Pointin ay at Jenny,
Laughin they flew by.

Money causes flatt'ry,
Money meks us vain;
Money changes aw things--
Now I'm Madam Jane.
Sen auld Robby left me
Houses, fields, nit few.
Lads thrang round i' clusters,
I'm a beauty now!

Money meks us merry,
Money meks us bra;
Money gets us sweethearts--
That's the best of a'!
I ha'e fat and slender,
I ha'e shwort and taw;
I ha'e rake and miser--
I despise them aw!

Money they're aw seeking,
Money they's git neane;
Money sends them sneaking
Efter Madam Jane!
There's ane puir and bashfu',
I ha'e i' my e'e;
He's git han and siller,
Gin he fancies me.
Money meks us bonny, &c.
