Ben Zabo - Wari Vo

"I have no money
I have no money
I am poor and very miserable
I can't satisfy any need
My honor and my dignity are lost
I would like a house .... but I cannot ...
I wish I had a car ... but I cannot.
I want a bike ..... but I cannot.
I would settle for a simple Moto, but I cannot
You listen to my song, have you seen a more desperate case than mine?
Listen, listen what happened gets worse
Was a girl I loved so much
I loved her so without calculation or any end
The day I asked her the sublime question
"Dear lady, will you marry me?
The girl in the answer to my question began to tell me her terms
She said: "Arouna, Ben Zabo listen well!
Can you and do you meet all my needs that here? Buy me every weekend beautiful clothes and classy shoes?
You give me fifty thousand francs and immediately I need a brand new bike, Jakarta and a mobile phone .
Once we are married, Ben Zabo listen to me! I want to live a big city and get around in a luxury car. If you can satisfy all this, let's go tomorrow to the town hall to celebrate our wedding ... "
Without realizing it, I cried aloud:
"O lady! The love you are selling is overpriced"
With that, she said goodbye and left me forever
Pretty girls, beautiful women of my country, If your love costs both arm and a leg , so it only remains for me the poor man, and all my fellow men
To choose, yes choose celibacy for life, I have nothing to satisfy you..."
