From the songbook Rise Up Singing edited by Peter Blood and Annie Patterson

The editors of the songbook from which this song was taken state: The British imposed an early evening curfew in colonial Nigeria. Popular struggle got the curfew lifted at least on the most important evening of the week. This song was written to celebrate their victory and ongoing struggle for independence.

*Please note that the lyrics in some of the above languages were transliterated and all were included in the songbook. Certain accent or other language marks were left off when I typed the above. If anyone would like to add the lyrics in a language not posted above, please do so.

I wonder if there's a YouTube video of the song to post so you can all learn the tune.

And soooo...what do y'all like to do on Saturday nights?
