the great Republic
heartbeat of the black race
hope of million souls
The strength and pillar of her wealth
is endorsed from her land and abundant resources
Home for ALL.
Independence is celebrated
British thanks for your servitude escape
everyone wailing to her disability
for its constraint to bondage and not freedom.
Day turns night, nights turns day
Sucking “water” from the “gutter” like a duck
a significance of POVERTY.
Governors are elected, leaders are decided
Her citizens are fed with vinegar
Despite her great strength and golden pillars,
borne is her choice of food
Corruption is her foreman; lifeless dictators
disruption of peace flood all stead
from danger of uncertainty.
Endanger! Our life is at risk, the citizens roar
the nation who has the blood of her inhabitants
is her strength, Suffering is her intrinsic nature
A Republic of Poverty,
giant of corruption, class of social vices
home of tribalism, lodge of religion crisis
College of disunity. Home for ALL
Return to your state oh Nigeria
Let the history of “Ghana Must Go”
be written about you
Let nations commit back your inhabitant
and let the good in you be felt around the globe
You are unfeigned acquitted
but your predecessors are guilty of all pains.
In deep communion with the creator
we say again, oh God of Creation,
direct our noble cause
guide our leaders right
help our youth the truth to know.
In love and honesty to grow
to live in just and truth.
All hail the King of creation
heal our land
great love we entertain
to build the nation where peace
and justice shall reign.
For Nigeria is our Land,
Nigeria is our abode.
