ONE ( English Translation)

TIWA SAVAGE

English translation


Every year we have Bitter kola
Every year we have African Walnut
Every year we see/have Kola nut for sale
My life is better

If they mention who has built a brand-new house
I’m one of them
If they mention who has bought a new big-big car
I’m one of them
If they mention who has had good fortune
I’m one of them
If they mention who has had good fortune
I’m one of them

All the things that the eyes have seen
The mouth cannot talk/divulge fully
A child that’s stubborn
Use a madness to teach him
All the things that the eyes have seen
I say, the mouth cannot talk/divulge fully
If they are stubborn, use a madness to taunt/deal with them
A Person will always be what he/she wants to be

Debtor, please don’t kill/trouble me
If I show my face/appearance
They will quickly put their hands down
You see that I have, you see that I have…
"Ori" simply means “Head”, which equates to Good destiny or Good fortune in this context

Look, if I show my face, and show my business
They will focus too hard, I’m one of them

Every year we shave Bitter kola
Every year we have African Walnut
Every year we see/have Kola nut for sale
My life is better

If they mention who has built a brand-new house
I’m one of them
If they mention who has bought a new big-big car
I’m one of them
If they mention who has had good fortune
I’m one of them
If they mention who has had good fortune
I’m one of them

Even me, even me also, I’m one of them
Even me, even me also, I’m one of them
Even you, even you also, you’re one of them
Even you, even you also, you’re one of them

I’m, I’m, I’m one
I’m, I’m, I’m one
I’m, I’m, I’m one
I’m, I’m, I’m one
I’m, I’m, I’m one
I’m one of them

Every year we shave Bitter kola
Every year we have African Walnut
Every year we see/have Kola nut for sale
My life is better

I’m one of them
I’m one of them
I’m one of them
I’m one of them
