For all you karaoke lovers, we’ve got lyrics to the 1st four verses below.  Please feel free to complete the lyrics in the comments to this so we can update & have the complete lyrics with your help!

M3nsa:
I be the smell the Melanin in my aroma
The tsalewote wearing roamer
The Waakye in the leaf eater
The when I see your mother greeter
The coconut & mango tree climber
The socks ball in the gutter, go & finder
The syto schooler
The sharp-brain, but number one, class distraction fooler
The minerals in the cooler stealer
The do it with my bare hands orange peeler
The Mozamo Disco Christo Church healer

Wanlov:
The bottos watcher
The better go & hide your daughter
The better, even hide your wife or your younger sister
Alasa eater
The Yoryi breaker
Atiah tearer
Abrofu nkatieh seed cracker
The trotro taker
The old apotro car laugher
The tadpole/goldfish hunter
The okpo/gbayra trap setter

M3nsa:
The hand me down Afro Moses wearer
The my somethings are gonna get better hearer
The wall jumper
The chest stamper
The Wele chewer
The non-alele wooer
The Fante, Ga & Twi speaker
The bass & tweeter peaker
The maid, mid-wife & madam freaker
The lady undressing, take a peeker
The taxi driver josser
The tear the samai dropping hustler
The I go pay you moro buyer
The polythene bag & broomstick kite flyer
The lotto staker
The breaker
The now that you & your girl are fighting
I will go and chop her, take her
The no mistaker
The Ghana’s number one beat maker

Wanlov:
Alikoto spinner
The sexy nun, non-believer
The most times devil, sometimes Jesus is a winner
Born again sinner
The highly advanced beginner
The OK, I was just side-tracking, digresser
The finalist, minimalist, cross-dresser
The shoe wearer
The liar
No pants to set on fire
The choir girls fingerer
The “oh! but we are just cousins” sexer
The hundred times malaria getter
The bring your own condom, non wearer
The multiple children haver
The one love, polygamist lover
The flat duna hater
Akrantie attacker
The police briber
The no money for the barber non-rasta
The president’s gbaa teaser
The sugar mommy pleaser
The f*ck yankee, we no dey hia damn visa
The wey kind of chow be pizza?
The frisbee arm thrower
The Banku be much better sayer
