O Nigeria, what happened 
your prestigious country
filled with rich soil
and valuable resources? 

O Nigeria, what happened?
Our rich resources 
are all wasted by greedy politicians
and corrupt senators.

O Nigeria
You were once a beautiful nation
fresh as a baby
but now you are filled with garbage
and unknown Gunmen.

O God of Judah
Please, help Nigeria
Before we become a deserted country.
