My pikin sit down make I yarn you better word

Wetin old eye don see, small pikin eye never see am

Na on your own everybody dey

No dey wait say people must help you

Nobody owe you anything

This world no owe you anything

E don dey before dem born you

If you think say your brother go help you

you don fail be that o

I beg no dey wait for help

Help yourself.
