(Languages: English, Yoruba)

Woke up one Sunday morning
Told my daddy “I’m leaving home
I’m going off to the city tomorrow
Even though I don’t know where to go”
Daddy said “Son, don’t be a fool!
‘Cause life in the city is unbelievable
You could get broken, Oh, you’re just a little boy!
And you may never find your way”
And I said “I know I could get lost, I know I could get broken
forgive me father but I’ve got to take a chance
Oh I’m already gone so just

Pray for me, (Gbàdúrà Fuń Mi) — same translation
Pray I find my way, k’ori bamise (that I may have good fate)
Oh! forgive me father, but I got to take a chance
Oh I’m already gone so just, pray for me (Repeat)

“Hello daddy, how’re you doing?
Hope mama’s doing OK
It’s been four years and eleven months now
Mo gbo pe Adukpe ti dagba (I heard Adukpe has grown up)
Olorun (By God), it was true what you said to me
That life in the city is unbelievable
Had to struggle just to get by everyday
And I could barely find my way
Sugbon, mo mope mo le sina, o da mi loju
(But, I know I can get lost, I am sure of this)
Mo ri pe aiye le, aiye yi soro
(I can see the world, it is a difficult world)
Forgive me father, but I’ve got to take a chance
Oh I’m already gone so just

(Refrain)

Repeat: Pray for me
Bori ba dolola lola O (Oh, If fate becomes a wealthy man tomorrow)
Emi ma de be O (I shall get there)
Gbadura ki n serere O (Pray that I may become successful)
Oh I’m already gone so just
Pray for me x2
K’ori bamise (I hope I have a good fate)
Oh I’m already gone so just
Pray for me

Ire (Goodness) Lyrics by Adekunle Gold

The grass is greener on the other side
That’s what I thought – before I took the ride
I burned my bridges, so I’d never look back
But if i had known
The life I was searching for
Was looking me right in the eye
If I had known,
The life i was searching for was already my own
Ire n be nile oo, ire ayo (goodness is at home)

Refrain:
Ire x3 (Goodness, Goodness, Goodness)
Ire ire ayo O npe mio (Goodness is calling out me)
Oni kin ma bo (It is telling me to come)
Oni kin ma bo nile (It is telling me to come back home)
(Repeat)

The grass is greener where you water the ground
That’s what I found – when I took the ride
I realized the mountain I’ve been climbing
Is nothing but sand
I didn’t know I already had the answer
No I didn’t know
But if I had known
The life I was searching for
Was looking me right in the eye
If I had known
The life I was searching for
Was already my own

(Refrain)
