Oh Lagos! My Lagos.
Lagos my origin, Lagos my home; Lagos land of my Ancestors!

Oh my Lagos! Land of my Ancestors! I beckon u! I call upon thee; yes! I your daughter!
When the rest of the world couldn’t accept me, even from conception u took me in, u accept me.

Oh my Lagos how glad I am and how favoured I was!
Oh Lagos land of my Birth! My Lagos; Land of my ancestors

Oh Lagos!
Lagos my home, I love thee as u has loved me,
I feel your pain, and I share your sorrow.
Oh Lagos how sad I become when I witness your gradual torture; from the infidel who only want to take from u and refuse to give back,
Oh Lagos! My Lagos; U never asked; but it won’t kill them if they care for u; in honor to all you’ve given them
Oh Lagos; My Lagos,
Lagos my home, my palace.
Oh Lagos u mean all to me. I live in your beauty;
I sleep in your serenity
I grow in; in your diverse wisdom
Oh Lagos, my wealth u gave to me. Lagos the city of excellence!
I call on thee: Lagos Lagos Lagos

Splendour, serenity, opportunity, intellect, technology, happiness peace.

Oh Lagos! My Lagos; my baby……

Your children have risen to care for u,
To be to be what you’ve been to them,
To do more and better,
As I lay my head down now, I lie to wake again to a newer Lagos

A Lagos that will wax stronger as d day rise
A Lagos that will know no sorrow
A Lagos that will be a home of peace, growth and joy;

An Ideal Lagos My Ideal Lagos.
