Cowboy Like Me

 

And here she comes, in her usual red suite,

Looking all attractive in the midnight every night.

Cowboys and the bourgeoisie all around…

They all come to the club dancing the night away.

She looked all too busy, with her gin and lime,

Puffing out her cigarette in the neon light this night.

All the blokes and blondes sitting around…

All she had in mind… getting some money off you…

 

CHORUS:

She said she wasn’t checking out with a cowboy like me.

Because I got no money like the bourgeoisie down town…

But I know I’m gonna make it one of these days.

She said she doesn’t fall in love with a dreamer like you.

Because you build your castle in the air always…

But she knows she gonna get what she wants.

 

Interlude

REPEAT CHORUS

 

REFRAIN:

Jesus Christ is my Savior. Christ lives in me.

I gotta go elsewhere Jesus lives I’m a cowboy for my Lord.

Jesus lives in me. And Christ is my Savior

I gotta go somewhere where I belong I’m a cowboy for my Lord.

When I Was Young

 

When I was young, my daddy said, “Son…,

You can be what you wanna be.”

I didn’t know what he meant.

‘Cos I didn’t want to be anything.

Time came, and I realized, that I want to be somebody.

So I decided to take it on,

Now I’m on my way, and I’m going for it.

‘Cos I wanna be a dynamite.

Blow your mind.

To the top……….

Daddy said it, and here I am.

No one tells me where I am today.

But you know…..,

The more you get is the more you want!

What you got, it don’t matter no more!

Do It In The Name of Love

 

I wanna tell you that I’ll make you mine,

And you’ll always stay by my side.

You know I got all it takes to love,

And keep you always satisfied.

I told you that day that I love you.

You really know I got the feeling.

We got to love, love, and love.

Tell me all the sweet words I love to hear.

 

CHORUS:

Do it in the name of….

Do it in the name of…

Do it in the name of love.

Do it in the name of….

Do it in the name of…

Do it in the name of love.

 

You look so pretty. You look so fine,

And I’ll tell my friends about you.

I take you along with me everywhere,

And you’ll be mine till th’end of time.

Did you think I was joking?

Can’t you look right in my eyes?

I looked at you and knew that I owned you.

Do not pretend not to feel the way I feel.

 

CHORUS:

Do it in the name of….

Do it in the name of…

Do it in the name of love.

Do it in the name of….

Do it in the name of…

Do it in the name of love.

Hypocrite

 

He saw her and took her for a wife.

Got her to give him two boys and a girl.

He had a lot of girls all around town.

He even told his wife he met a lady doctor.

 

CHORUS:

Com’ on, hypocrite! You cannot change in life.

You married another wife. But she’s gone away.

You shunt from ‘Bar to ‘Court. With a broken home.

You cure many people. But can’t cure yourself.

Look at… what is… coming to you…

Look at… what is… coming to you…

**************************

 

Decency

 

Looking with insight, colorations, beautifulness of the world.

Looking our people, Walking up and down, Trying their hand (on) everything.

I’ve been sitting here, Weighing all my dreams,

Sitting at sixties, and waiting for an answer.

Two wrongs can’t be right, And that’s time…, time…, time…

The world could be better, better, yeah!

 

REFRAIN:

There’s nothing like decency. There’s nothing like justification.

Destination time we don’t know. When we can say, the world would end.

 

INTERLUDE:

Nomads and herdsmen, Trekking down the south,

Moving their mobile ranch everywhere.

Farmers are struggling, Losing all their crops,

Wondering when this problem would end.

I’ve been sitting here, Weighing all my dreams,

Sitting at sixties, and waiting for an answer.

Those who got to talk, Don’t wanna say anything,

And those who have the money don’t want to give out.

 

REFRAIN:

There’s nothing like decency. There’s nothing like justification.

Destination time we don’t know. When we can say, Jesus would come

 

INTERLUDE:

Where is the balance? Where are open hands? Where is the equity we all need?

Where is the good thing the land has for us? How can you see the wrong things?

How can we stop this? ‘Cos there’s no equal right,

Our children are growing without a future.

How can we stop of this, ‘Cos there’s no equal right,

The ones who stole our money are going free.

 

REFRAIN:

There’s nothing like decency. There’s nothing like justification.

Destination time we don’t know. When we can say, Jesus would come.

There’s nothing like decency. There’s nothing like justification.

Destination time we don’t know. When we can say, Jesus would come.

There’s nothing like decency. There’s nothing like justification.

Destination time we don’t know. When we can say, the world would end.

Don’t Guess My Mind

 

What can you say when you take a look on my face, into my eyes, when I am blue.

You want to guess what’s wrong with me, but you can’t get it.

Don’t you try it, ‘cos you can’t get it.

 

CHORUS:

No! You can never guess my mind.

And I can never guess your mind.

No! You can never guess my mind.

And I can never guess your mind.

No! You can never guess my mind.

And I can never guess your mind.

‘Cos the mind is so unpredictable; don’t guess my mind.

 

REFRAIN:

And my mind so dreary….; don’t guess my mind.

And my face deceptive…..; don’t guess my mind.

And my mind so dreary……………………

And my face deceptive………………………

Don’t you guess……………………..; ‘cos you will…….., always get it wrong.

And my mind so dreary….; don’t guess my mind.

And my face deceptive…..; don’t guess my mind.

 

CHORUS:

No! You can never guess my mind.

And I can never guess your mind.

No! You can never guess my mind.

And I can never guess your mind.

‘Cos the mind is so unpredictable; don’t guess my mind.

Me? Take A Risk?

 

For ninety minutes, I was right inside the boat.

I couldn’t find me no shelter nowhere.

The rain are beat me; and the moon are shine me.

Me? Take a risk? Small boat on a big sea?

 

REFRAIN:

The crewmen and the passengers;

No compass and no light.

The moon was shine so bright,

To find our destination,

The sea are big; and the night are very late.

Me? Take a risk? A small boat on the big sea?

Me? Take a risk? A small boat on the big sea?

 

CHORUS:

Buccana… was on the boat.

Jeane Marie… was on the boat.

Dan Igbaji… was on the boat.

Bro Laz…. was on the boat.

Brother Emma… was on the boat.

We’re going… Asarama….

We’re going… Nyaba River…

We’re going… Nkoro
