Fela Kuti – Army Arrangement

Maybe somebody is digging where we’re coming from; work is put in by this overachiever..

It’s going down!! per this funky drumming? we didn’t merge with the apparatus so hustle knocking is done to the status!! the healing process is for the scars..

It’s going down from Louisville / Newburg to Johannesburg; from the ATL to Charlotte Mecklenberg to Pluto to Mars…

Over in Nigeria /  Lagos? word about  how it goes / went per Fela Kuti with  Army Arrangement was delivered…

Check the scenario; the word on the curb is we’ve got out own issues over on this side of the pond; check out the players and the track; out in the cold my people shivered..
