The great Ègbá legion
Great Ègbá as precious
As basket ‘f onyx
Fierce warriors ‘f great value
Valiant fighters that rout
Great ruler at the mountain top
Opportunity in socialism..
Rock ‘f refuge
Shelter of protection
Even as enemies attack in seconds
Fierce warrior ‘f Ègbá,galantly on stand-by
A shield that must not be arch’d from behind
Greatly is the aake warriors
Coward is he,
If call’d Ègbá warrior and got arch’d from behind
The fierce warrior ‘f Ègbá chest
Arrow blades in a style ‘f gallantry
As swift as the air
Ear at home,ear at villages
Ègbá is the place
King with golden crown
Queen with skin’f shining brown
A proud son ‘f the soil is what i am
Influenciality is what i can
Industrious are my human
Handsome are totally not ‘f our men
A man for ten women is what we are.
