VERSE 1 If I was an eagle, I would lift myself Spread my wings and fly If I was a lion, I would run into the jungle And give the loudest growl And if I was the sun, yes I would rise early in the morning And shine my light so bright If I was an angel, I would sound the alarm For the whole of creation to bow at your feet..
CHORUS Kabiyesi Olu orun, I have come to give you twale To give you worship Kabiyesi Olu orun, I have come to give you twale To give you worship
VERSE 2 If I was a little child, I would sing and shout for joy If I was a stallion o, I would use my four horse power If I was a shining star, I would illuminate everywhere And if I was the son of a governor I would make everybody troway salute o And if I could control the times, I would go back to the garden of eden I will give you the worship that only you deserve, YES! I will look for beautiful names like Alade wura o Yes I will go on soun and patewo iye Gbe oruko re ga o
BRIDGE Only a fool will look into the heavens and say there is no God Only a mad man will look into the sea And claim that the fishes are a mistake Even thebaba alawos can testify that there is only one Jehovah So who are you to tell me that my Yahweh, my Tsidkenu doesn’t exist He is a consuming fire o, Yes He is the Lion of the tribe of Judah He alone shall I serve For the rest of my days
