Goodbye beautiful Nigeria, An adaptation of “O Bella ciao!”

After our election I awakened

Oh bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao, ciao, ciao!

After our election I awakened 

And the cabals were in power

 

Oh Nigerians save our nation

oh bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao, ciao, ciao!

Oh Nigerians save our nation

Because I feel split approaching 

 

And if I die as a Nigerian,

oh bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao, ciao, ciao!

And if I die as a Nigerian 

Then you have to bury me 

 


Bury me deep in the forest 

oh bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao, ciao, ciao!

Bury me deep in the forest 

Under the shades of Iroko trees 

 

And all the people who shall visit me

oh bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao, ciao, ciao!

And all the people who shall visit me

Will tell me “what a sacred tree” 

 

This is the tree of our nation 

oh bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao, ciao, ciao!

This is the tree of our nation 

Sown for our national freedom
