Before you say

Before you say I love you in Africa Think twice before exposing your feelings to a lady The center of gravity should be ‘Iphone' because every young girl's heart has its name embedded in it Before you say I love you in Africa Change your thought ‘Better days ahead' – the only day is today If their eyes and body can’t serve as witnesses of your wealth, you become a beautiful trash Before you say I love you in Africa Dress in Luis Vuitton; Georgia Armani with a Mercedes Benz or even a corolla; these are the considerate elements of love Plenty talk don’t full basket, their hands are shaking and itching to chew up your money Before you say I love you in Africa Dress like an employer and change your mother’s tongue Let money fall on you, they have been taught how to establish a financial home thinking you’re central bank Before you say I love you in Africa Throw away intelligence and responsibility and wear the garments of swag and cuteness It is a holy crime but loving cost a million dollar in the mind of mama Africa Before you say I love you in Africa You should own a mansion full of gold and diamonds If not, you’ll be ‘a lazy man' – they’re awaiting to own those properties their father never bought Before you say I love you in Africa Tie your belt very tight around your waist and be prepared to withstand every pressure Fame is an extraordinary thing; every lady would admire when you walk past the broad street Before you say I love you in Africa Think about being part of the working class If not, you would become a broken glass seen in those scattered fields, while they crawl to the voice of another suitor Before you say I love you in Africa Never mistake the moon for the sun or strive towards colour blindness For if you don’t understand the pain a pregnant woman undergoes, you won’t believe she gives birth to a child
