I de sing song eh (Ta-ta) E de sweet like sugar (Ta-ta) Oya dance, roll your waist I go from grace to grass eh (Ta-ta) Back to grass to grace (Ta-ta) Life na Rollercoaster When the time no dey dey And the plan is doom to fail And the heart is due for mending

I'm singing a song eh (Ta-ta) It's sweet as sugar (Ta-ta) Dance, roll your waist I go from grace to grass eh (Ta-ta) Back to grass to grace (Ta-ta) Life is a Rollercoaster When there's no time And the plan is doomed to fail And the heart is due for mending
I'm singing a song eh (Ta-ta)
It's sweet as sugar (Ta-ta)
Dance, roll your waist
I go from grace to grass eh (Ta-ta)
