I swear this “hello, how are you” is a real one
Not made in Aba, Alaba or Taiwan.
I swear this smile is not from the neck up
It is heartfelt, it’s real sweetheart, it isn’t made up.
Yes I’m really interested in the things that you make
And I look forward to having that warm handshake.
Yes, it’s true that I do have ulterior motives,
But I left them at home, I wish you noticed.
I really do want to know how you are doing.
I swear this is not about the elections or who will win.
Sometimes I wish it were how it used to be;
When they didn’t call me candidate when they asked ‘who is he?’
Sometimes I wish I didn’t want your vote, but I do
So I could really be me again and let you really be you.
Hello Tiwa Ogundipe, how are things?
I like the way you look today and your ear rings.
