INTRO
Over the years, Lagos state has earned respect in Africa as a result of lifestyle there. The artist starts by informing us to pay homage this State’s status.

VERSE
“Your body will rest” is a literal translation of the artist’s words, figuratively, he is saying “you will calm down”. The idea of living in such a reputable state makes immigrants overly excited, many a times, once such people face the realities of Lagos state, the excitement will vanish, they will “calm down” or, say, “their body will rest”.

Your body go rest o Papa tell pikin o Your body go rest o Your body go rest o Dem come go confess o Your head go correct o You nor go forget o Shey you get the concept
Your body go rest o
Papa tell pikin o
Your body go rest o

You nor go forget o
Shey you get the concept
 
 
Your body will rest Fathers, tell your child Your body will rest Your body will rest They will confess You will wise up You won’t forget Did you get the concept?
Your body will rest
Fathers, tell your child
Your body will rest
Your body will rest
They will confess
You will wise up
You won’t forget
Did you get the concept?
 
 

CHORUS
The artist tell Lagosians to wise up, he gives them some tips to start with. Don’t look for miraculous blessings, you might be duped, don’t see clergies as holy men, they might be fake etc.
