lyrics

Today is a Tuesday
But I can't go school today
I will make the river red
That's what my teacher said
Only the boys can go oh
Now my learning go make slow
And primary is not free
So we face difficulty
And when I learn too hard
They take me to the witches' camp
This makes me so sad
I feel to climb the hill and jump
By my spirit will not die
I will never lose hope
Leaders should help I
I cannot cope

We no dey care 4 dema future
We no dey care about the children oh
We no dey care 4 dema future
We no dey care about the children oh
We no dey care 4 dema future
We no dey care about the children oh
We no dey care 4 dema future

Soon as they get the position
They forget about you
Your family
Your children
No generational thinkers
It seems that
Wana children
Demma future no dey hia dem
Forgetting that we made dem
Bɔhyɛ akɛseakɛse
Wommu bɛ tina so pɛ
We for beg dem
The old government gave Obour
Two million Ghana cedis
E take eight hundred thousand do som research
What research?
Dem for audit am we wan know
People really wan know
Everything dey collapse
For demma head all dem dey talk be say

We no dey care about the children oh
We no dey care 4 dema future
We no dey care about the children oh
We no dey care 4 dema future
We no dey care about the children oh
We no dey care 4 dema future
We no dey care about the children oh
We no dey care 4 dema future

If som kiddy ask we y we dey tell am shut up
We no dey like explain how life be set up
So dem just dey walk around with dema head down
Kicking stones n konkos for the ground
Colonial slavery syllabus for millions
No b people we dey raise
Dey b minions
Playgrounds turn churches n dumpsites
Cutting trees obstructing our dumb sight

We no dey care about the children oh
We no dey care 4 dema future
We no dey care about the children oh
We no dey care 4 dema future
We no dey care about the children oh
We no dey care 4 dema future
We no dey care about the children oh
We no dey care 4 dema future
