Banky W – Talk And Do – Lyrics and Translation

[Intro]
Mastaa
[Banky W]
Can’t you hear our children crying?
Why doesn’t it break your heart
Can’t you see our people dying?
When did this world get so dark?
We’re not perfect but we’re trying
We all need to play a part
‘Cause thing we never change
Always stay the same
Until we, Do something about it
Talk And Do
We need to stop talking about it
We must talk and Do
Why don’t you do something
[Verse 1]
Yoo!
This is not a song, It’s a statement
About a state of a very lost generation
How can we let our little boys become rapist?
And how can we let all of our love turn into hatred?
In the State we see cases of racism
White cops killing us ’cause we have black faces
And in Africa, I don’t know where to begin
The same kind of murder, the same colour of skin
And we don’t care to use our platform to make a difference
We prefer to drag each other on Twitter so we can trend (Kaii)
We filter all our Instagram pictures just to pretend
Like we’re happy
True happiness only comes from within
I don’t watch the News ’cause it’s all bad
Different days same hashtags
Different names, different victims, same flashbacks
It don’t concern you
May your children never have to say #MeToo (Amen!)
They ask me why am so consumed with community service
It’s cause my community is hurting
My community is dirty
No one bats an eyelid
‘Cause everyone thinks it’s someone else’s problem to fix
And everyone prefer not to dive into politics
So why we upset that the system is so full of shit?
The nation that we need is our responsibility
The country we wanna see, starts with you and me
[Chorus]
Do something about it
Talk And Do
We need to just stop talking about it
We must talk and Do
Why don’t you do something
Talk And Do
We need to stop talking about it
We must talk and Do
Why don’t you do something
[Verse 2 – 2Baba]
Where is the love?
Where is the patience?
Urhobo, Igbo, Idoma
What is the difference?
E don dey too much
Talking looting and voilence
Repeating the same thing, if you check am na madness
We need a solution
Time for some action
Too much talku talku, committee no dey function
The answer we dey find
E dey inside me and you
Now it’s time for all of us to Talk and Do yea
Comon!
Talking no dey change anything
This na the time for action
