Chorus

Dem Born me for Lagos
We live a life of hustle but smile mehn despite the trouble
Dem Born me for Lagos
Lagos city bred hustle errday to make my bread
Dem Born Me for Lagos!
Dem born me
Born me (x4)
Dem born me for Lagos
I wrote a song for the city
Come around and journey with me

Verse 1
Dem born me for Lagos, cosmopolitan Lagos
Big city of chaos, small towns big players
Center of excellence, home of small businesses
That’s where the boss is, that’s where the source is
That’s where the greenz at
The yellow and white buses, that’s where its been at
Molue that’s where it’s seen at
Aj is where they made me, Isolo is where they birth me
Street school gave me life and now am healthy
You know the city well, where to find pretty girls
Aja is where the wealthy dwell, where dem ajebor stay
Mushin is where the thugs lay, Where them alaye dey
Dagrin had an accident there on a Wednesday
Asuani every Tuesday reloaded it on club day
Go to maracana sit and watch the kids play
Beaches on the island, Bridges connect the mainland
Third mainland is the longest bridge in Africa…


Chorus

Dem Born me for Lagos
We live a life of hustle but smile mehn despite the trouble
Dem Born me for Lagos
Lagos city bred hustle errday to make my bread
Dem Born Me for Lagos!
Dem born me
Born me (x4)
Dem born me for Lagos
I wrote a song for the city
Come around and journey with me

Verse 2
I was brought up in Lag, you can tell from my swag
The way I sag my jean I look a lil foreign
Growing up in Lagos, other cities were boring
A hive of activities visit us wen you touring
Agege in the morning, Agoyin in the noontime
Everyone is off to unilag wen its school time
The city is a goldmine, where we make capital
Work everyday here like farm animals
Estate street carnivals, yearly eyo festival
When it comes to partying we take it real personal
Police can’t drop the crime rate, water can’t stop the heat
Who doesn’t know Alaba is home of the pirates
Chilling with the boys from mushin olosha
The type that put men on obituary posters
I know girls that carry daga like mollah
Reason anyhow they turn your beef into suya


Chorus

Dem Born me for Lagos
We live a life of hustle but smile mehn despite the trouble
Dem Born me for Lagos
Lagos city bred hustle errday to make my bread
Dem Born Me for Lagos!
Dem born me
Born me (x4)
Dem born me for Lagos
I wrote a song for the city
Come around and journey with me

Verse 3
Looking out the glass of the bus as I pass
Lag is a museum I see pictures of the past
Been part and parcel of Lagos, I’ve been a part of events
All the incidents I witnessed, I know stories to the end
From the blast at Ikeja to the riots at the park
Black vans parade streets with cops at the back
Life is a race; look at the Lagos bus stops
See how many people be running when the bus stops
Lagos is hot spot; we bring the music non-stop
Every kid is boxed up cos they wanna shop right
I’m like a touch light, put Lagos in spotlight
I flow Skinny jeans and body hugs too tight
Girls dey wear tatoo, before na taboo
Ashawo everywhere from okota to mile 2
V.i to berger, lere to Egbeda
Hold your wallets tight for dem commot your cheddar
