Life no de easy

Updated on September 2, 2015

Ben struggled to stay in school and his poor parents had little but nothing to make sure that he stayed in school; education they say is the key to success and every parent desires sound education for their kids. However, not every parent has what it takes to keep a child in school, to get a child basic education in a country such as ours requires a lot of effort and sacrifice from both parents and their wards.

While so many families eventually make it, some don’t and this trend is simply one of such cases because despite the fact that Ben fell short of his desire to gain education, he gained something else with the talent bestowed on him by God our supreme master.

So many of us will identify with the above in one way or the other so if you are one of those then sit tight and enjoy yourself because this is dedicate to you

Verse 1:

Life no dey easy

But you need to keep moving

Going to school no dey easy

No money to make it up for me

I no born with a golden spoon

Mother hits the corner to sustain

Father gives his all so i learned to support

Because education is the key to success

But no money to keep me on with school


Chorus:

Never give up you can be what you want to be

All you need to do is to be focused

There will be days you will face challenges

And people you hoped on disappoint you

But do not give up, believe in your dream

Never give up, yea yea, never give up


Hook-

The hard times are meant to strengthen you

So the period things are not as you want

Is when you tell yourself that it is going to be alright

It doesn’t matter how you struggle to get to class

No cross no crown so believe in yourself

And give your education everything because the end justifies the means


Verse 2:

Life no dey easy

But when there is life there is hope

As you make your own bed

Na so you go sleep on it ooo

So when people look down on you

And life pours it’s dirt at you

Do not settle for the least, be positive because

Mother hits the corner to sustain

Father gives his all so learn to support


Chorus:

Never give up you can be what you want to be

All you need to do is to be focused

There will be days you will face challenges

And people you hoped on disappoint you

But do not give up, believe in your dream

Never give up, yea yea, never give up


Hook-

There are so many challenges and so many changes to make

But no matter how hard it seems, believe in yourself

Keep your head headed in the right direction

Because nothing good comes easy

And in all you do, remember that education is the key

So whatever you do to scale through school is for your benefit


Verse 3:

Mother hits the corner to sustain

Father gives his all so i learned to support

People laughed at me when i dey hustle to get my school fees

But them no no say kaki no be leather

I refused to give up on my dream

Because no pain no gain

And now dem dey see me as i dey shine

Those way think say i no go grow dey watch me now as i don blow

Never give up on yourself, keep headed on the right direction


Chorus:

Never give up you can be what you want to be

All you need to do is to be focused

There will be days you will face challenges

And people you hoped on disappoint you

But do not give up, believe in your dream

Never give up, yea yea, never give up


Hook-

Nothing good comes easy ooo

So many hurdles to face in life

But education is the key

So no matter how life treat you

Never give up, never give up

Believe in yourself and in your dream

Give your best and do the right thing

It doesn't matter how rough it seems

People might look down on you but at the end you will wear the crown

Never give up...


Outro:

Never, never, never give up, yea never give up but live life to the fullest..o yea! Never give up... it's me Ben talking to you, never give up. ooooo yeeeeeeeeee



Author’ remark
For everything you loose, you gained something else and for everything you gained, you lost something else, it all depends on your outlook to life because as of Ben, he lost his education but gained success with his talent and is today, one of most talked about and successful musician in the country.
