Original Baby_ Simi

Lyricist lounge chose Simi’s ‘Original Baby’ off the self-titled album ‘Simisola’. This sixth track ‘Original Baby’ passed a message on being yourself no matter the circumstance or situation you find yourself. Simi said No to living as a replica of someone else as she portrayed her originality in her sonorous voice. Lyricist lounge found the lyrical content catching, you have to relate with the words therein.

The songstress kicked off in style as she portrayed her being in the first verse. The lyrics were in English and Pidgin English.

                          I’m just an ordinary girl, sitting in the hallway

                         I no dey (I don’t) turn up, cause I’m a little boring

                       But I’m the life of the party because I’m kinda funny

                          Money don’t drive me, I drive my money, yeah

The pre-chorus had Simi admitting to her originality. She came up with thoughtful lines as she said:

                        Everything is not for everyone and that is okay

                                           You gotta take me as I am

                           I’ll be better but I’ll never be somebody else

The chorus which was an anthem gave some advice. It came with tips for being original.  Lyricist lounge couldn’t be carried away by the songstress’ voice so we had to stick with the pure lyrics.

                              (Original baby) Yeah, wherever you go be yourself

                                     Ah, you can never be somebody else

                                    Yeah, whatever you do, you better be true

                                    Oh, no matter the pressure be yourself.

You get to know more about the song writer as verse two came with short crazy lines.

                            I talk a little too much; I got it from my mama

                              My baby tell me say, oh me I get the drama

                               Do the best I can, because I believe in Karma

                         Maga don’t pay me, no I pay my maga.

The final verse continued the tempo as well as the exciting lyrics.

                                 Nobody perfect, no be (isn’t a) lie

                                    I get (have) flaws, I can’t deny

                                But everybody get em personality oh

                              My guy make (you should) you live your life

                                  Person who love you, go (will) love you die

                                     But you can never satisfy society

Lyricist lounge was thrilled as the chorus ends this top chart music. The lyrical content could be related to as it helped reduce some stress. Lyricist lounge has this so original.
