lyrics

Kukua I just got this scholarship
so I’ll be moving to the dollarship
I just want my dreams to set sail
cause if I stay with you they might fail”

With tears in her eyes, she said,

“Please don’t leave me
If you stay, we’ll find a way so don’t leave
me
If you stay, we’ll find a way.
I promise you.”

“Kukua please know
say you’re so beautiful.
Black star, my queen.
I love you but guess what?
This cedi and pesewa
cannot afford my dreams”

She said
“Kwaku, if you leave
I’ll lose one more piece of me,
I’ve lost too many.
History repeats itself
so it’s time to play a different song
I need you right here beside me, here at home.
I know that I have got some issues but ano fit fix alone.
say I ano fit fix alone.

So don’t leave me
If you stay, we’ll find a way
so don’t leave
me
If you stay, we’ll find a way
I promise you

If you leave
please write songs for me
and come back to me”
