Babatunde Aremu


Because I am A Special Man


I am a specal man
Addressed as a gentleman
My posture is calm
Inside me is ruggedness
Despite the daily storms
My mind is fixed on success
'cos I am a special man

My liver has furnace of determination
Communities tagged me the head
Much is expected from me
My loads are too heavy
I am to provide for the family
I am to fight for the society
'cos I am a special man

I am special man
I am a warrior
I am a fighter
I fight for peace
I war against the enemies
I laid down my blood for peace
'cos I am a special man

I am a special man indeed
Not all men are special
I am special to the woman
A real mascho man
My absence makes woman solitary
My presence brings candour to her
Her joy is complete in me
So, I labour daily to make her joyful
I am a priceless prince

I am special indeed
Out of my loins come the kids
I am a giuding light to future leaders
A role model par excellence
The kids like to be like me
The children wants to have my coarse voice
In my eyes they see determination
In my posture they see strength
Courage exudes from me to them
With me they can face tomorrow
'cos I am a special man
