The Nigeria National Anthem Old and New Vs. Looters National Anthem

By Francis John

Old:
Nigeria we hail thee Nigeria we hail thieves
Our own dear native land Thieves dear selfish land
Though tribe and tongue may differ Through poverty and wealth may differ

In brotherhood we stand In selfishness we stand
Nigerians all, and proud to serve Nigerians thieves, and proud to steal

Our sovereign Motherland Our sovereign looters land

Our flag shall be a symbol Our Naira shall be a symbol

That truth and justice reign That cabals, rituals and jungle justice reign

In peace or battle honour In organized disaster or bloodbath honour

And this we count as gain And this we count as rascality, infringement and insane

To hand on to our children To hand on to our immediate family

A banner without stain A banner with tears, hunger, blood and injustice

O God of all creation O Satan of all evil deceit
Grant this our one request Grant this our one more loot intention

Help us to build a nation Help us destroy a nation
Where no man is oppressed Where all men are oppressed and deplorable

And so with peace and plenty And so with conflicts and scarcity

Nigeria may be blessed Nigeria may be recessed
New:
Arise, O compatriots, Nigeria's call obey Arise, O thieves, Nigeria’s call disobey

To serve our fatherland To serve our selfish land
With love and strength and faith With hate and weakness and wickedness

The labor of our heroes past The work of our looters past

Shall never be in vain Shall ever be in vain
To serve with heart and might To serve with sentiment and force

One nation bound in freedom, peace, and unity. One nation bound in bondage, conflicts, and selfishness

Oh God of creation, direct our noble cause Oh devil of deceits, direct our selfish intention

Guide our leaders right Guide our looters corruptly

Help our youth and truth to know Hurt our youth and lies to know

In love and honesty to grow In hate and dishonesty to fail

And living just and true And living fear and lie
Great lofty heights attain Great pompous depths attain

To build a nation where peace and justice shall reign. To form a nation where conflicts and injustice reign.
