By Far – Bobi Wine


My father said there’s more politics

In the music industry than in the Parliament

Forgive them father,

They don’t know who dem deal with, anyway!

We ah bad man, we don’t fear intimidation

That’s why we sit top of the nation

From Dangala Kamwokya where we come from

This is a new one for you…

Verse 1

It is me, yes, bad Bobi Wine,

The highest top budget gangster

Yes indeed, I’m bad Bobi Wine,

The multimillion bad man, listen!

Big Size, you tell big lies,

High in a dream that you just fantasize

Open our eyes, better realize,

Don’t see me rise and start criticize

You talk about daddy’s money,

And Bobi talk about Bobi’s money

You better wake up from your dream,

Better grow up before you turn forty


Bway dem tink dem bad

But me ah badder dan dem by far (by far)

De bway dem tink dem good

But me ah better dan dem by far (by far)

De man dem tink dem mad

But me ah madder dan dem by far (by far)

Sometime dem tink dem cool

But dem a fool and fool by far (by far)

Verse 2

Give me dis now, first of all life is not a movie

In a movie, is where you do your f**kin’ lovey dovey

Life is a game based on reality

So if you play like a fool you will die like a fool

Badman, tanyumya bi-story by’awaka

Badman, tayambala bu jean bwaba dame

Badman, tavimbila mu nyumba ya kyali

Badman, asasula n’engoye z’aba aguze

Badman, tava mu taata we

Badman, tazalawa bya buwangwa bye

Tatamiila mu maaso ga tooto we

Badman, amanya ne w’akoma ku mwenge

Dem say dem ah big like Titanic

But when bad man come dem start pace and panic

Bon chakna bombo world dem again

Dem ah kankana when dem ah see me


Star! Badman (by far)

Boom boom boom boom! Badman (by far)

Dynamite! Every time you touch it, it blow you

Bad dan bad and hotter than fire

Angry management! And di money! Tony Houls… ‘member!

Verse 3

We are de original, dem ah carbon copy

Carbon copy ne original, biba opposite

Some bway you nicknamed cartoon-baboon

After time, your gyal want cartoon-baboon

Big up the Goodlyfe inna Neverland

Don’t fear no man, never put down your gun

Big up the doctor inna your island

We nah big up no punk cuh we beg no friend

Munaffe Sempala byamusamba

Obwenge bw’abayizi bwamuwenza

Kyav’akola effujjo ely’ekiwenga

Nakwaata ne katima nataswaala, eh!

You talk about daddy’s money

And Bobi talk about Bobi’s money

You better wake up from your dream

Better grow up before you turn forty

(Chorus) X2
