Chorus I’m still the one you abandoned When I get in the in a club they cheer me up I’m still the one you abandoned When I get at the work place they cheer me up I’m still the one you abandoned When I get in the game they cheer me up Verse 1 To wish for a scene away is like looking for a green horse My first love that I really adored, Ooh my only virgin garden that I truly worked on Moiled and toiled; slashed and cultivated. A lot of water I sprinkled unto my seedlings One of the trees grew and bears me a fruit But I deeply regret because I never ate my fruit Chorus I’m still the one you abandoned When I get in the in a club they cheer me up I’m still the one you abandoned When I get at the work place they cheer me up I’m still the one you abandoned When I get in the game they cheer me up Verse 2 Why did you my garden let a stranger make away with my fruit For the stranger to begin and carry on cultivating my only garden It’s a pity I have lost my earring but I still have ears in my ears I searched for good fortunes elsewhere and I finally found something good Its like I was in a high school but I have graduated to the university Now the love is roaming because the other farmer is lazy He is no longer taking care of the garden But I’m sorry I can’t make it now as I’m very busy with my new love Chorus I’m still the one you abandoned When I get in the in a club they cheer me up I’m still the one you abandoned When I get at the work place they cheer me up I’m still the one you abandoned When I get in the game they cheer me up Verse 3 Girl I know you can’t believe you’re my former Living without my hot loving like electric transformer All friends and foes are slandering you You abandoned our love and swore never to love me You now live in winter and I live in summer To make up never again can I because with her I’m so happy, She loves, understands and fulfill all my needs (Chorus) I’m still the one you abandoned When I get in the in a club they cheer me up I’m still the one you abandoned When I get at the work place they cheer me up I’m still the one you abandoned When I get in the game they cheer me up

Chorus Mr Gwiji has in actual fact annoyed his wife today by battering her in public The ANGRY wife yells at him “MR GWIJI YOU ARE A DRUG DEALER. Verse 1 Mr Gwiji was highly regarded with esteem and value in the society. He rapidly progressed in many aspects and especially financially. He drove luxurious cars and invested in real estate. Little did people know the source of all his wealth. “Ooh no MR GWIJI! You are a dubious character! Your wealth was not legitimately acquired.” Chorus Mr. Gwiji has in actual fact annoyed his wife today by battering her in public The ANGRY wife yells at him “MR GWIJI YOU ARE A DRUG DEALER. (Verse 2) Your deadly drugs are so addictive that our youth’s lives have been badly ravaged. Some have been turned to zombies. Parents are in enormous grief each day over the lives of their children. They have sworn to deal with you harshly. There is little hope for a brighter future of their children. “Ooh no MR GWIJI! You are a dubious character! Your wealth was not legitimately acquired.” Chorus Mr Gwiji has in actual fact annoyed his wife today by battering her in public The ANGRY wife yells at him “MR GWIJI YOU ARE A DRUG DEALER. Verse 3 We have finally caught you MR. GWIJI and therefore we are not going to leave not until you disclose your accomplices. But whom shall we turn to? Is it the Police? or The judiciary? Chorus Mr Gwiji has in actual fact annoyed his wife today by battering her in public The ANGRY wife yells at him “MR GWIJI YOU ARE A DRUG DEALER. “MR GWIJI YOU ARE A DRUG DEALER “MR GWIJI YOU ARE A DRUG DEALER

How are we going to survive (Eeh yah how are we going to survive?)*2 Verse 1 She is my beautiful girl whom we were so much in love. I adored her indeed, It came a day that we parted ways through some unexplainable circumstances After one year she re-appeared. She got into my house shedding tears She didn’t hesitate to narrate her story of what turned out during the separation period Adding that she indulged in decadent behaviours; changing men - one after another Today she went to test her HIV/AIDS status only to learn that results were Positive It’s so painful and tormenting but I swear to take care of her without stigmatization where did you come from you deadly monster (HIV/AIDS) who has no cure Chorus How are we going to survive (how?), How are we going to survive (how?) How are we going to survive (Eeh yah how are we going to survive?)*2 Verse 2 He was my uncle who was a beloved of many people and the whole family at large It’s unbelievable that he is no more. Since he got sick he was mentally disturbed. He turned skinny. He developed unending coughing. We moved up and down and all over seeking for his medication Unfortunately he is all gone; regrettably it was this deadly monster where did you come from you deadly monster (HIV/AIDS) who has no cure Chorus How are we going to survive (how?), How are we going to survive (how?) How are we going to survive (Eeh yah how are we going to survive?)*2 Verse 3 Extra marital affairs is dangerous (be faithful to your partner) Please my friend it’s vital (to get tested and know your HIV status) If you are already a victim (do not panic just have a proper diet) Oh our heavenly father save us (and help us to stay away from extra marital affairs) Chorus How are we going to survive (how?), How are we going to survive (how?) How are we going to survive (Eeh yah how are we going to survive?)*2 Even though I love you so much my babe tell me how I we going to survive!!! Samtaar!!!!!

Chorus My heart is telling me you are the only one girl! My heart is telling me you are the only one girl! My heart can’t lie to me, my heart will never tell a lie Verse 1 It was on a Saturday when I saw you walking alongside your mother each carrying a kiondo (an African hand woven handbag) I was busy in my father’s garden cutting nappier grass for his cattle I stared at you until you went out of my eyesight I was itched by stinging nettle and accidentally chopped off my finger. Chorus My heart is telling me you are the only one girl! My heart is telling me you are the only one girl! My heart can’t lie to me, my heart will never tell a lie Verse 2 I would hide in the bush and wait till late. I would then watch you going to the river to fetch water in your African pot Mosquitoes would bite me severely and would at time persevere the heavy rains. But I am so privileged that I found you my love I want to marry you and be my loving wife My heart can’t lie to me, my heart will never tell a lie Chorus My heart is telling me you are the only one girl! My heart is telling me you are the only one girl! My heart can’t lie to me, my heart will never tell a lie Verse 3 Every time I see you talking to another man I feel so disturbed Every time I see you talking to another man I feel so disturbed Every time I see you talking to another man I feel so jealous Every time I see you talking to another man I feel so jealous I feel Kiwaru, I feel Kiwaru, I feel Kiwaru, (kiwaru is a Kikuyu word which means a big potatoe. It’s used to express great pain whereby one feels as if there is a big item in your throat). Chorus My heart is telling me you are the only one girl! My heart is telling me you are the only one girl! My heart can’t lie to me, my heart will never tell a lie My heart can’t lie to me, my heart will never tell a lie My heart can’t lie to me, my heart will never tell a lie I feel Kiwaru, I feel Kiwaru, I feel Kiwaru,
