(+Lyrics + meaning + translation) Music review: Sometimes (Original version) by T.I Blaze

T.I Blaze is a Nigerian singer currently signed to Dvpper Record Label. The remix of the song features Olamide. Click the link below for the remix.

What is the song “Sometimes” by T.I all about?

The artist in this song laments about an endless difficult life (even though one is working) which can be very discouraging, and pressurize one to do illegal things even when he/she doesn’t want to.

Regardless of how tiring it is to keep struggling, the artist encourages himself, he says he is not relenting but will keep working till he gets what he wants, and be able to provide for his mum and loved ones.

Lyrics to Sometimes by T.I

Intro

Beatz

They call me T.I Blaze

Bridge

Everyday man have been knocking (Everyday man is working.)

Everytime man have been working (Everyday, man is working.)

The grinding wan tire me (Grinding is tiring.)

But I no fit quit hustle for mummy (But, I can’t quit hustling because of my mum.)

Chorus

Sometimes food no dey give man joy (Sometimes, food doesn’t give man joy.)

But Canadian life, the feeling is different

Amoye checking but no lose guard (Despite different checkings; but, don’t lose guard.)

Loru loru lafin boshe (At midnight we hustle (The use of Laptop to siphon funds from people.)

Why life com hard? (Why is life hard?)

And man no wan to do bad (And man doesn’t want to do a bad thing.)

Cause I no wan suffer later (Because I don’t want to suffer later.)

Na everytime I dey sad (It is everytime that I am always sad.)

Verse 1

B’ashe n se dating, l’anshe military

Excessive bombing kato ri maga (Excessive bombing before we see maga (the swindled people online))

Ta gboriduro (That the head will stay (successful)

Me I went faraway

Mummy mi n be nile oh oh (My mummy is at home.)

They said I have gone astray

Nigba tori jombo timo we

When no one to ginger me

I ginger myself

I woke myself then I said to myself

Boy Blaze remember what mama said 

Sooner or later them go hear my cassette (Sooner or later they will hear my cassette.)

For their radio… (On their radio.)

All these fine girls dema ready oo (All these fine girls are ready.)

Dem go dey call me baby oh (They would be calling mW baby oh.)

Egun leri eshi mari mariwo (Its just masquerade you saw, you would still see coronation instrument)

So ema pariwo (So, don’t shout.)

Chorus

Sometimes food no dey give man joy (Sometimes, food doesn’t give man joy.)

But Canadian life, the feeling is different

Amoye checking but no lose guard (Despite different checkings; but, don’t lose guard.)

Loru loru lafin boshe (At midnight we hustle (The use of Laptop to siphon funds from people.)

Why life com hard? (Why is life hard?)

And man no wan to do bad (And man doesn’t want to do a bad thing.)

Cause I no wan suffer later (Because I don’t want to suffer later.)

Na everytime I dey sad (It is everytime that I am always sad.)

Verse 2

Person wey no suffer no fit relate (Anyone that did not suffer can’t relate it.)

Eni to shubu shima dide (Whoever falls will still rise.)

After sinning man pray for grace

Make another man no go take my place

Ah ah ah, man I don see many things (Man, I have seen many things.)

But I gats keep my things. I keep my feelings

Small boy big big thinkings

Bawo nigun se pari

Everytime no stressing

Day by day na blessing

Day by day na?

Man have been through lessons

Man have been through a lot

Chorus

Sometimes food no dey give man joy (Sometimes, food doesn’t give man joy.)

But Canadian life, the feeling is different

Amoye checking but no lose guard (Despite different checkings; but, don’t lose guard.)

Loru loru lafin boshe (At midnight we hustle (The use of Laptop to siphon funds from people.)

Why life com hard? (Why is life hard?)

And man no wan to do bad (And man doesn’t want to do a bad thing.)

Cause I no wan suffer later (Because I don’t want to suffer later.)

Na everytime I dey sad (It is everytime that I am always sad.)

Chorus/outro

Sometimes food no dey give man joy (Sometimes, food doesn’t give man joy.)

But Canadian life, the feeling is different

Amoye checking but no lose guard (Despite different checkings; but, don’t lose guard.)

Loru loru lafin boshe (At midnight we hustle (The use of Laptop to siphon funds from people.)

Why life com hard? (Why is life hard?)

And man no wan to do bad (And man doesn’t want to do a bad thing.)

Cause I no wan suffer later (Because I don’t want to suffer later.)

Na everytime I dey sad (It is everytime that I am always sad.)
