A Ghanaian Love Song For The Love Birds (Lyrics Translated)


I love music! Music easily stimulates the mind and calms the heart at the same time. I do not know the exact ingredients of a good son, but there has to be something about music. I will definitely do a personal research. I listen to basically everything since I am a drummer. I always catch myself drumming on tables or stuff unconsciously anytime I listen to a very good song. So long as a song is good, best believe I will listen to it.

One of my favorite songs is a LOVE SONG. I actually dedicate it to my friends Becky and Thomas. I believe they are in love and have been in love for a while. Anytime I listen to this song, they come in mind or a couple (I know) who are in love come in mind. It is a Ghanaian song titled:  “Obi do woa do ni bi”, meaning, “if someone loves you, love them back”.

The words to the song is something I will be telling my future love. I wish I could sing, because I will write and sing to her the most beautiful songs. The words to the song mean a lot and it is something lovers will appreciate the most.

These are the lyrics to the song in English:

Intro (Slow start to the chorus)

If someone loves you, love them back

In this world that we are in, love goes where love is, so hold me tight

Love is like a mirror, so my queen, look at me.. look at me so I can also take a look at you (2x)

Verse 1

All creations of God walk in pairs

I have searched and found that you are my matched pair

My future, my world, my well being is all in your hands

So do not betray me

Please understand everything I say

And do not allow my enemies to make fun of me

Chorus

If someone loves you, love them back

In this world that we are in, love goes where love is, so hold me tight

Love is like a mirror, so my queen, look at me.. look at me so I can also take a look at  you (2x)

Verse 2

No one knows what tomorrow will look like

So don’t don’t compare me to others or make an issue out of it

I like you the way you are, I love you just the way you are

Do not harbor anything

Because true love is hard to find

Hold me all the time and pamper me as well

Now that I have you, a Ga person will say : “I will go the ends of the world with you”

Hook

Response: If someone loves you, love them back (2x)

Chorus

If someone loves you, love them back

In this world that we are in, love goes where love is, so hold me tight

Love is like a mirror, so my queen, look at me.. look at me so I can also take a look at you (5x)
