Kobo Town - Abatina lyrics

Aba Tina oh, who is it yuh have there breakin' down the door?
we knew Tina was no deceiver,
but few were inclined to believe her
Aba Tina oh, who is it yuh have there breakin' down the door?
They said she was lucky to marry
a man rich and handsome like Mr. Harry
Aba Tina oh, who is it yuh have there breakin' down the door?
you see Harry was a charmer
no one believed he could harm her
Aba Tina oh, who is it yuh have there breakin' down the door?

he called her sugar and spice
bought her everything nice
and she ignored her best friend's advice
‘cause he had money, words like honey
never considered the price
as he bought, sweet talked his way
into her life
she felt lucky to be loved, thrilled to be wanted
happy to be held, to be kept, to be flaunted
to be sought, to be caught, to be pursued
how could she foresee what ensued?

well, the wedding was the talk of the town
Tina went down the aisle in a long, white gown
Aba Tina oh, who is it yuh have there breakin' down the door?
they said she wanted to marry above her;
all she sought was someone to love her
Aba Tina oh, who is it yuh have there breakin' down the door?
when the news first came, we called her a liar;
she made no sound, mouth full of wire.
Aba Tina oh, who is it yuh have there breakin' down the door?

long before the wedding came the signs, came the times
sweet lines to settle the doubts in her mind
the trials, all the denials
the promises all would be fine
there was no need, she was already resigned
she felt lucky to be love, thrilled to be wanted
happy to be held, to be kept, to be flaunted
to be sought, to be caught, to be pursued
how could she foresee what ensued?

in the end Tina was buried
Aba Tina oh, who is it yuh have there breakin' down the door?
Tina was young and should of outlived us
now we pray that she could forgive us
Aba Tina oh, who is it yuh have there breakin' down the door?
we knew Tina was no deceiver,
but few were inclined to believe her
Aba Tina oh, who is it yuh have there breakin' down the door?
