The Masses lyrics in English language.
I have thought about this for long. The Ghanaian nation.
Are we going forward or backwards?
Let’s go, listen!
I have said it, I wish to reiterate it. And may God give me the heart to say it respectfully, so that they do not send people to shoot me at dawn. But I don’t have a choice since I dislike what is going on in town.
First of all, this goes out to the youth. The youth, because the level we have reached, if we don’t think deep but rather lose hope he might not survive it. By the time we will realize this, we might have been dead fowl.
First of all, does the government ensure your security; think about you or rather uses your money to build his personal house? What do you intend to do with the degree that you have acquired from university? Will you take it abroad to sweep or go to Techiman?
The hypocritical attitude of us Africans. When they dislike you that means that you rather speak the truth. We are suffering due to our foremothers’ breast milk. They do not teach any sense in school, give us me a break.
Our leaders must learn to speak the truth. So can’t you see how Ghanaians are suffering? We produce oil, yet we continue to beg. I see a broken tooth in your mouth, yet you insist it is a mere diastema. They are killing us, yet we are too scared to say.
So you want us to vote for you, so that you can blow dust into our eyes with your car? You have killed us for far too long, enough! Do not come and trouble our wounds. If you have no help to offer to the sick, do not cause harm to his medication.
Which nation are we living in, that everything is turning stupid? We all bear witness that things are not going well, but we have remained dump. Lights are going off leading to collapsing of businesses. Clearly this is white wicked mindset which has become too big for all to say.
All they know is extravagant spending. What is hidden in their mind is personal share from deals they sign. Keep on doing this, God is watching you all. The self-seeking employee rather gets paid more than the self-sacrificing one. And when you try to mention it they go like ‘hey’. You can’t even share your views. If this nation was a cloth, by now it is torn and in dirty state.
Laws do not work so people use their mind to do their own thing.The Ashantis will vote for Akufo Addo, the Northners for Mahama. This practice makes me feel sorry. His plan is to vote for someone known to him, but not the person who will help him. My brothers and sisters let us all try and be wise. Mr. Honourable, the nation’s money is lodged at one place. We need the likes of Ken Agyapong and Kweku Baako. I do not want to hear political party matters, let’s try and put things in order.
The numerous loans we have acquired await future generations, why? Where did we go wrong? Upon all the sweat we go through, we get paid less. Toll fee alone costs one cedi. And when you complain about it, they will tell you one cedi is no money. The economy has collapsed like six feet hole at the cemetery
Just this dawn, Dumso has led to the burning of somebody’s one bedroom house. You people have generators in houses. If you see us stupid, we have heard you. You people continue to send your children abroad while we keep on remaining in villages. The fool will definitely be wise one day.
The election period is coming again, come and make your promises. I blame us Ghanaians, because when we hear about rallies then we are there to support. Someone will work from 8am to 6pm and only receive chicken’s pay. But the politician only sits at the parliament house and does no work, yet he buys house and even Range, absolute wickedness.
I know that our leaders do travel abroad. So when you get abroad, don’t you appreciate how nice their environment looks? So when you enter Kotoka airport, don’t you feel the place is unhygienic? So don’t you see Ghanaian roads are bad? Then it is up to you. Because of greediness, the nation’s interest is always at last. We have shortage of gas, shortage of electricity, shortage of gas.
We voted for you to come and govern the nation but not to spend our cash. If you have any sensible thing to say, and for the media you need to relax. We continue to talk about corruption, yet it is still in the system. You have shortage in electricity, yet you continue to supply to other nations. Have you heard about this before?
Anytime I watch Ghanaian TV station, my blood pressure rises up because every day the news is about corruption. Let’s all be wise, because it is not about big grammar. We are always speaking words which we do not even know their meanings. The consumption of equity is leading to whatever whatever blah blah. This is not necessary, stop beating about the bush.
Let’s us all come together in unity. When the nation falls, who will save it? When there is fight, they will seek asylum abroad leaving us to suffer behind. Because we used to say JJ was handsome, Kuffour had an admiring eyes and Mahama was ordinary like us, see where we are today. All that I am saying is lets us be wise.
Pay attention to what some people are saying and where they are taking us. It will take the mercy of God, lest we become pitiful. All these words are coming straight from the bottom of my heart. Hah, Obidiponbidi. We plead with you all.
