Beede Odun (If The Home Is In Crisis) !



Beede Odun!
Says our fore fathers;
The society becomes a jungle.

Beede Odun!
Says our fore fathers;
The community begins to rumble.

Beede Odun!
Says our fore fathers;
Our culture becomes the trouble.

Beede Odun;
Says our fore fathers!
Our troubles will begin to double.

Beede Odun!
Says our fore fathers;
Our economy will begin to fumble.

Beede Odun!
Says our fore fathers;
The Nation will definitely crumble.

Beede Odun!
Our fore fathers were never wrong...
