I am a soldier of my fatherland

An undefeated warrior

The blades of my sword are like the magic wand

Men fall by its touch of horror

Kuti is our family name

We are the warriors of fame

Never have we Lost a war

Even the sword havent recorded our flaw

Admist laughter I received the news

Women have challenged our village

They know nothing about the fields

Yet war is what they sent as a message

Inexperienced mothers in the kitchen

Storming to war against warlords

Knives will I use to slaughter them like chickens

As they are not worthy of swords

My brothers have fallen by my side

Our warriors have lost their pride

Dead bodies of my fellow comrades

Lying out in the open field

Bruises and cuts from the warfront

My body no longer listens to my command

The land slowly dragging me down like quicksand

As my body slowly yields to the voice of my boots

The moon witness' us,
At the blouse of tensed sunset,
Love, the name we bare.

And crazy they went
Vows and promises they put on head
14/2 marks their death

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
