Pre-Chorus - Bongo Ikwue
Well, I've been searching for, for true love,
Gotta  keep ride on searching till I find,
And nothing good comes easy, this I know,
Gotta keep ride on searching till I find.

Verse 1 - 2Baba

eh ooouuu, eh ouuu!, ooouuu!
Lee leee, yeh!
I've been searching for a woman,
Wey go make all this nonsense to start to dey make sense
I've been searching all kinds of places, yeah!
Stumbled many ladies, different races, yeah,
And I almost gave up on love, that my heart feel tired,
So many failed relationships got me sick and tired
if no be me, e go be she, but e must scatter
Now I know, Now I know, Now I know I found my forever (Chai)

Chorus - 2Baba
Omo!, I no fit holla, I no fit shout
Dark Idoma girl, she too get mouth
All her girlfriends, them dey use her for clout
Gentlemen, she dey turn them to tout
Aip'oklobia dudu umu'utonkon kworgba,

Smile na die, her dance na fire,

You know, el'Ihotu tokanoo...
