I’M A YORUBA MAN IN RIGA

I’M A YORUBA MAN IN RIGA

I don't take coffee,
I drink palm wine, my dear
I like my Àmàlà with obe efo 
And you can hear it in my accent when I talk
I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien
I'm a Yoruba man in Riga.

Yoruba man in Riga
Yoruba man in Riga
Yoruba man in Riga
Yoruba man in Riga
Yoruba man in Riga
Yoruba man in Riga
Yoruba man in Riga
Yoruba man in Riga
Yoruba man in Riga
Yoruba man in Riga
Even these two wise men acknowledged my presence and payed homage
I'm a Yoruba man in Riga
Yoruba man in Riga
