You’re our own
You’re our hope
You’re our country
We’re proud of how old you have become
We’re proud of the invaluable resources you possess
We’re proud of your rich diversity
We’re proud of your evergreen vegetation.
Indeed you’re a blessed Nation
But what news have we citizens been hearing of you?
You’ve grown too old becoming something else.
We’re getting too scared of the Nigeria which we acknowledged.
We hope for a better you
We hope for your future
We hope for your peace
We hope for your stability
We hope for a better country!
