The old days predict better yesterday

The previous, was an awful yesterday

We hoped the hardship will end yesterday 

Here we are in terrible calamity today

The present adversity is more than the past

War, looting and corruption has erect her mast 

Imagine Nigeria is now desolate

Paupers daily seek to relocate

Oh Nigeria, my Nigeria is dying 

Oh my Leaders are you truly trying?

All the promised futures are now futile 

Were they crushed by a giant reptile? 

If all these days were part of futile futures 

Does tomorrow truly has good future?

Oh Nigeria

My Nigeria

Place of deadly leisure

Ah, Nigeria unknown future
