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.
