Lyrics

Verse 1:

Like an angel in the morning
Shooting star across the night
The most beautiful girl I’ve seen in all my life
Every second spent with you is like a day that starts brand new .
Girl, I’m so amazed at all the things you do.

Yes, I wanna build my whole world around you
So, I promise you forever and for always
Girl, you are my sunshine
Baby don’t you go away

Chorus:

Iyawo mi (My Wife)
Ololufe Mi (My Lover)
Ore mi (My friend)
Alayo mi (One who brings me joy)
I will love you forever

Verse 2:

I hear music in your words and in the way you call my name.
When you’re by my side
I can do anything.
You’re my best friend
You’re my lover
Without you, no one else would do.
Through thick and thin
I know we’ll make it through.

Yes, I wanna build my whole world around you
So, I promise you forever and for always
Girl, you are my sunshine
Baby don’t you go away

Chorus:

Iyawo mi (My Wife)
Ololufe Mi (My Lover)
Ore mi (My friend)
Alayo mi (One who brings me joy)
I will love you forever

Bridge:

My baby, my baby
You are my sunshine
My lover, my essence
There’s no one like you.

Chorus:

Iyawo mi (My Wife)
Ololufe Mi (My Lover)
Ore mi (My friend)
Alayo mi (One who brings me joy)
I will love you forever
