NOT MY CUP OF TEA



  • If they like let petrol be one
    thousand naira at the station,
    It is not my business not at all
    I will still have my tea taken
    Every morning with Agege bread.

    If they like let them find not
    The hungry budget paper,
    It is not my business not at all
    I will still have my tea taken
    Every morning with Agege bread.

    If they like let them create million
    Jobs in the inland and the mainland,
    It is not my business not at all brother
    As far as they did not take my cup of tea
    I will still live and drink with Agege bread.

    If they like let them feed school children
    One square meal per day in their hungry
    State, sister, it is not my business to know
    I will still have my cup of tea sweet as breast milk
    Every morning with Agege bread to water down.

    If they like let them fight over the country,
    Let them embezzle all the money here leaving
    The poor with nothing to write home about,
    It is not my business anyway with them
    I will still have my beautiful tea taken daily.

    If they like let PMB travel all over the world
    It is not my business with them at all here,
    I will still make my tea in a brownish colour
    As far as my cup of tea is not taken from me
    I will be as happy as the puppy in my world.

    If they like let them find the Chibok
    girls in Sabimsa forest with Children,
    it is not my business to know at all
    I will still have my cup of tea taken
    Every morning with Agege bread.


    If they like let them repair the roads,
    If they like let them bring light to us,
    If they like let them stock all the money
    Abroad, It is not my business to question them
    I will still have my cup of tea taken daily.

    I will only react when my cup is taken;
    When my cup is taken from my mouth.
    So long they don't take my cup of tea
    From my savouring hungry mouth, I will
    be fine, let madness rule and ruine them all fool.
