SISI EKO

Sisi Eko

Walking downtown on one sunny day
On the streets of my sweet Lagos
I met a lady on my way;

She had lovely eyes beyond a price,
Cheerful, beautiful and nice
O Sisi Eko! O Lagos Lady!

She smiled at me and that was that,
My fragile heart almost went apart
O Sisi Eko! O Lagos Lady!

She stared at me up and down,
Emotions flashed within, I lost my frown
O Sisi Eko! O Lagos Lady!

“Please may I walk with you?” I say
“Yes,” and we walked together all day.
O Sisi Eko! O Lagos Lady!

“Let’s enjoy and sport and play all day,”
She laughed…but “No” was all she could say
O Sisi Eko! O Lagos Lady!

And then upon that sunny day,
She turned from me and floated away,
O Sisi Eko! O Lagos Lady!

I walk this loony way each day, chewing a snack
But this Sisi Eko will never come back.
O Sisi Eko! O Lagos Lady!
