Description
Something that seems very appropriate in the times we're in. Also been reading Matt Taibbi's "Griftopia" so a lot of that going on in there. The additional voices are in some Nigerian pidgin English - it's the language I lament in deep inside! - with some helpful translations below. Thanks for the listen and please share any thoughts, thanks!

Lyrics
Money talks
Money talks
And poor man he shout
While poor people shout

Money talks -- E'wo, E'wo (Oh no, Oh no)
And poor man he walk -- N'do, N'do (Sorry, Sorry)
They'll blow up the world -- E'wo, E'wo (Oh no, Oh no)
Just to buy it back --N'do, N'do (Sorry, Sorry)
Hey, Mr. Banker could you tell me, -- O'ya, O'ya (C'mon, C'mon)
What my life worth now? -- O'ga, O'ga (Big man, Big man)
See I read the market this morning -- E'wo, E'wo (Oh no, Oh no)
But I couldn't figure it out

E'wo, E'wo (Oh no, Oh no)

Where can I get some money? -- O'ga, O'ga (Big man, Big man)
When life starts to act a bit funny? -- O'ya, O'ya (C'mon, C'mon)
Would you bail me out?

Or shall I face the fact,
That money talks,
But it don't ever say nothing?

Cool and mellow
Nonso, this has a relaxing vibe to it. A song with some "character" to it. Sometimes that just "happens" and sometimes it's intentional. This sounds like the "feel" couldn't help but "happen." Did that make any sense???

In short, the song just has an atmospheric soul of it's own.

Have I ever told you
you are my favorite vocalist at MJ along with Michael 2?
Your voice is so versatile.It can express frustration, quiet anger, love.
Itend to desbelieve short songs (I know that this is stupid) but man, you have two very powerful minutes here.

$ay It ain't $o
It certainly does $peak and it is a liar!I like the vibe but i can also hear this breaking into a UB40 type rant after the first minutes.like the mellow approach and the second additional voicing work with this.
