XTSAMURAI LYRICS

“Aiye”

Chorus:

Aiye yi, Aiye yi, oh oh (4x)

Verse 1:

I’m sitting at my window and I’m thinking of this life

 and I just understand that all the things

that I can see are always more than times and seasons

that are changing and there’s nothing

 I can do to stop the passing of the sands of daily time.

And every day I’m getting older, hopefully wiser,

but there’re many things I wanted to achieve that start to slip away.

 I was waiting for the right time to just come my way – it never did.

Don’t say ‘Baba’ (Papa), I’ll do it sometime.

You have everything you need for life and goodliness.

Time’s passing by.

Make sure you try ‘cos it is so much better than sitting in your room complaining (Hey!)

Chorus:

Aiye yi, Aiye yi, oh oh (4x)

Verse 2:

I’m walking down the street of Lagos seeing many people labour,

now and then they take a break to wipe the pouring sweat away

and straighten backs behind their hearts that ache with doing dead end jobs they really hate

but tell themselves they need the pay.

And every day they’re getting older, not really wiser,

but there’re many things they wanted to achieve that starts to slip away. ‘cos they’re

waiting for the right time to just come their way – I hope it will.

Don’t say ‘Baba’ (Papa), I’ll do it sometime.

You have everything you need for life and godliness.

Time’s passing by.

Make sure you try ‘cos it is so much better than sitting in your room complaining (Hey!)

Interlude:

Aiye, O-le

Chorus:

Aiye yi, Aiye yi, oh oh (4x)
