Iya Basira

Dis na one buka wey I dey like to go. The food sweet so tey e go make your mind blow.
Day and night Iya Bass! How she do am I no no. Dem tink say na jazz, my brother no be so.

People people make una come e oh, iya basira e don jazz me oh, oh oh oh, everybody helep save me oh,
I no dey sabi chop either my mother or my girlfriends food,
People people make una come e oh, iya basira e go kill  me oh, oh oh oh, everybody helep save me oh,
I no dey sabi chop at my mother or my girlfriends food.

Wetin dey be say e get one day, wey I say I go play go see my paddy Sunday;
na so I reach there but Sunday he don high on beer,
luckily for me in junior brother eye e clear, so e say make we stroll through the area,
little did I know I was strolling to my burial right there where Oshodi bus dey load,
was a little buka, close to the main road. I laugh when e pass the door, he tell me say the name na
“Iya Bas” for short, but I bow when he order “iresi ati ewa, eran umum pure water
not even minerals. I come gree say I go manage to chop am,
before I realize I dey order second round, third round, fourth round,
I never still stop wetin Iya Basira e give me chop.

You think say na play when I say that the way wey I dey
(wetin do am?)e no dey okay,wetin be your own advice,
I don dey steal my paddy money to buy Iya Basira rice
even on my girlfriends birthday,
wey she dey wait make I take am to Ocean View,
I no know when I pass di place,
the only thing wey dey my mind na Iya Basiras palm oil stew,
kilon kilon sele sele, me I never see this kind, juju tele tele, all those people wey go vex pele pele but I hear say iya basira na xxxx xxxx I sure say still I go go their go sit down order my first round move to second round, third round, fourth round
