Up to the hill and down through the alley
Take the bus to Gwoza Valley
From Maiduguri to Gwoza Valley

A heavy downpour destroyed my hope
If you’ve gone lost ask the blue antelope
In Maiduguri ask the blue antelope

Entertaining bluebucks were nowhere in course
I bought the bus at the price of a horse
To Maiduguri at the price of a horse

Women dancing in calabash hat dye
The guy in the back with one stem eye
Back to Maiduguri the stem eye guy

Good number of people were grumpy and tired
Along Cameroon border bushdoctor was hired
Towards Maiduguri bushdoctor wired
