By Far

Song Lyrics

[Intro]

My father said there’s more politics
In the music industry than in the Parliament
Forgive them father,
They don’t know who dem deal with, anyway!
We ah bad man, we don’t fear intimidation
That’s why we sit top of the nation
From Dangala Kamwokya where we come from
This is a new one for you…

[Verse 1]

It is me, yes, bad Bobi Wine,
The highest top budget gangster
Yes indeed, I’m bad Bobi Wine,
The multimillion bad man, listen!
Big Size, you tell big lies,
High in a dream that you just fantasize
Open our eyes, better realize,
Don’t see me rise and start criticize
You talk about daddy’s money,
And Bobi talk about Bobi’s money
You better wake up from your dream,
Better grow up before you turn forty

(Chorus)

Bway dem tink dem bad
But me ah badder dan dem by far (by far)
De bway dem tink dem good
But me ah better dan dem by far (by far)
De man dem tink dem mad
But me ah madder dan dem by far (by far)
Sometime dem tink dem cool
But dem a fool and fool by far (by far)

[Verse 2]

Give me dis now, first of all life is not a movie
In a movie, is where you do your f**kin’ lovey dovey
Life is a game based on reality
So if you play like a fool you will die like a fool
Badman, tanyumya bi-story by’awaka
Badman, tayambala bu jean bwaba dame
Badman, tavimbila mu nyumba ya kyali
Badman, asasula n’engoye z’aba aguze
Badman, tava mu taata we
Badman, tazalawa bya buwangwa bye
Tatamiila mu maaso ga tooto we
Badman, amanya ne w’akoma ku mwenge
Dem say dem ah big like Titanic
But when bad man come dem start pace and panic
Bon chakna bombo world dem again
Dem ah kankana when dem ah see me

(Chorus)

Star! Badman (by far)
Boom boom boom boom! Badman (by far)
Dynamite! Every time you touch it, it blow you
Bad dan bad and hotter than fire
Angry management! And di money! Tony Houls… ‘member!

[Verse 3]

We are de original, dem ah carbon copy
Carbon copy ne original, biba opposite
Some bway you nicknamed cartoon-baboon
After time, your gyal want cartoon-baboon
Big up the Goodlyfe inna Neverland
Don’t fear no man, never put down your gun
Big up the doctor inna your island
We nah big up no punk cuh we beg no friend
Munaffe Sempala byamusamba
Obwenge bw’abayizi bwamuwenza
Kyav’akola effujjo ely’ekiwenga
Nakwaata ne katima nataswaala, eh!
You talk about daddy’s money
And Bobi talk about Bobi’s money
You better wake up from your dream
Better grow up before you turn forty

(Chorus) X2
