One Street One Beat

Sonibare Bose 2000 (Nigeria)

In the street of the world
  With only one familiar beat
  Walking up and down the world
  Over and over again with the same beat

  With obnoxious lyrics on screen
  You wonder who gave the idea to them
  Happy follies ready to display to be seen
  With such keen interest they watch them

  Who will deliver us from unpleasant
  Sound that fills the air with unrest?
  Who will deliver us from the evil
  Passed to the juvenile from the devil?

  Let the world street experience a new beat
  Not with obnoxious lyrics but pleasant
  Lyrics that heals , edifys , encourages the soul
  That we may lay to rest our soul.
