If you ask me; na who I go ask?
The matter wey we see so, e tay wey e start
No be me go talk am, e heavy for mouth
If you ask me…The matter for ground…
Eh! Na who I go ask?

Verse 1
The reason for the reason for the reason why I’m soliloquizing yeah
The things wey I dey see, wey I dey hear, e pass me
I’ve got to tell the story and I’ve got to tell it from the starting
About a man, a woman, and their girl pikin
Wait till the second verse before my story begins

(Repeat chorus)

Verse 2
The woman travel leave her daughter with the husband
Home a-lonely (home a-lonely)
E no tay I begin see the man, his daughter ad them dey play
Strong play (they play strong play)
A month later the daughter say her period delay
I ask her who touched her she say her daddy only
I don’t know what to say I don;t know what to tell her mother
E be like say she get belle

(Repeat chorus)

Verse 3
The story wey I talk e be like say I dey play
But all this type of things they happen everyday
Speak out or take some action abeg you no delay
No let matters worse pass as e dey….as e dey

(Repeat chorus)

  • many girls r abused by their dads coz the mothers r careless. they dont read the signs & when the girl tries to inform the mother she is not protected as expected. in this song, the woman leaves a "ripe girl" with a man in a house. the natural thing is 4 the man to tell the girl t o act like her mother. men r beasts. they dont care if she bikin, sistren,wife's friend,etc. anything goes!

  • It seems only Jaluo and Michelle got d msg. They say about 30-40% of women get molested or abused by men they know or are related to. Dat means, u can sit down in church and say "you, you, you and YOU." God save us.

    Kenny June 20, 2011 8:25 am
  • Or worse, "ME, you, you and YOU."

    Kenny June 20, 2011 8:55 am

  • I must confess, the song is a nice and meaningful one. So, I give kudos to Omawumi, but she should let us know her husband who is the owner of her newly born baby.
