THOU IROKO

THOU IROKO
The famous king of the forest 
The mother figure of the green groove
As the lion lords over 
All other animals in the forest
So Iroko towers with undeniably,
Caring and encompassing hands
Of its dominion over tree

Oh! King of the forest
Hold forth your comforting hands 
To thy teeming millions of the 
Under- growths which hitherto had
Been mercilessly beaten by the sun

Hail Iroko! Shout!!
Thou old, young, men, and women
Shout and praise
The king and master of the 
Forest to rise for a dance for the
Rhythm and drum beats
Sound so tenacious 
Dance, dance, dance
Oh great king of the forest
