It was an anthem of freedom
It was a cry for liberation
It was the hope of the Nigerian people
It has become a joke on the street,
A wish upon a star,
It has become a far fetched dream
In an economy highly dependent on oil,
A people striving on foreign products
And a leadership adamant on fighting corruption
Change we chant! Change echos back at us
Missing girls, missing budget, a misled country.
Budget padding, inconclusive election, rise in dollar rates, Dall in oil price, bad roads, no light, no water, demolishing of property, white elephant projects,
Corruption fighting corruption, hardship everywhere....
This is the change we see, this is the country we know.
