Fela Kuti – Gentleman – YouTube

Africa hot
I like am so
I know what to wear
But my friend don’t know
Him put him sock
Him put him shoe
Him put him pant
Him put him singlet
Him put him trouser
Him put him shirt
Him put him tie
Him put him coat
Him come cover all with him hat
Him be gentleman
Him go sweat all over
Him go faint right down
Him go smell like shit
Him go piss for body
Him no go know
Me I no be gentleman like that
(chorus) I no be gentleman at all o
I be Africa man
Original
(chorus) I no be gentleman at all o
