Ella was a lady of lost glory
One would think the reason was behind her story

She lost her honour before all men
That was just the omen

Her body became a public toilet
Where all tom and dick went and left

Slay mama she thought she was
Selling her body everywhere

All men on the street had tasted her nectar
Her nectar was sucked by all who desired to.

Like a monkey being deceived by a branch of a tree
She was deceived and found herself on the ground

2, 3, 4 weeks she discovered pregnancy

|Ella|
Charles, I’m pregnant
|Charles|
Who is responsible?
Hope you won't say I’m the one?
Infact leave my house!

|Ella|
Bass, I’m pregnant.
|Bassey|
Preg what?
So what's my concern over that?
Besides, You're telling me as what?

|Ella|
As the father.
|Bassey|
Fa...? God punish that thing you call mouth.
Abeg commot from my house, out!

All men ran away,
Yes she lost her integrity
As the news spread across

A mother without father
Oh Ella! An epitome of shame and disgrace.
Mocked on the street
By the same who banged her day and night.

She lost her integrity and honour, miserable was her life.

She found life unbearable
Ran to the nearby bush
Hanged herself
And died!
