Different Streets Lyrics by Made Kuti

[Chorus]
Different streets (Different streets)
For Lagos (Lagos)
Different streets (Different streets)
For Lagos (Lagos)
Different people (Orishirishi, different people)
In Lagos (Lagos)
Different people (Orishirishi, different people)
In Lagos (Lagos)
Different people, different people, different people

[Verse 1]
What do you see when you go (What do you see)
What do you see when you go (When you go)
What do you see when you go (What do you see)
What do you see when you go (When you go)
What do you see when you go
To Lekki?

[Interlude]
What we see na abnormality
No be say I day talk say everything there dey easy, but
One must wonder the source of all the money
All I mean is when I go
E be like say I day another country
See, I truly respect those who rise through hardship
Defying all odds through hard work and good leadership
My family is one of those
And that’s why I know the difference
Between making an honest living
And corrupt embezzlement
If the only thing wey school fit teach us na
How to be successful
The common sense effect will be our failure to be useful
To our country, our race
Our family and our friends
A self-centered way of life will bring all of us down in the end

[Verse 2]
What do you see when you go (What do you see)
What do you see when you go (When you go)
What do you see when you go (What do you see)
What do you see when you go (When you go)
What do you see when you go
To Ojuelegba?

[Interlude]
One crossroad for centre town
If you don’t know what’s next, please go and listen now
A prophet is what many of us call Fela
Someone with very special skills to see very far
But grandpa was not predicting the future with his songs
He was speaking about everything he saw
Everything that was wrong
Zombie, ITT, Yellow Fever, CBB
These songs were talking about his present
Not what was to be
We must now understand just how scary it is
That we are facing the same problems from the ’70s
And think for ourselves how hard we must work collectively
To be free

[Chorus]
Different streets to be free (Different streets)
For Lagos (Lagos)
Different streets (Different streets)
For Lagos (Lagos)
Different people (Orishirishi, different people)
In Lagos (Lagos)
Different people (Orishirishi, different people)
In Lagos (Lagos)
