The mob has no name

The mob has never had a name in Ghana

The mob has no name in Nima

The mob has no name in Taifa

The mob has no name in Madina

The mob has no name in Swedru

The mob has no name in Oforikrom

The mob has no name in Bantama

The mob has no name in Kotokraba

The mob has no name in Tamale or Walewale

The mob has no name when they kill innocent civilians

The mob only has a name when they kill a soldier

Else it becomes the usual default foolish case for the state

Denkyira Obuasi mob, woe unto you!!

For you are now the byword among Ghanaian mobs

Referred to by the other many guilty innocent mobs

Why did you kill a Captain? Why did you not verify his claim?

Was it because you didn’t want to find out the truth? Or was he too young to be a captain?

Was it because the devil found work for your ideal hands? Or were you just fated?

Hmmm, woe to you Denkyira Obuasi mob, for betraying us

For we had no name, but for your sake we are no longer anonymous

You have destroyed our umbrella of camouflage

You have stained our uniform and stripped us naked to be crucified by public opinions

You have uncovered our master plan, sighs, we are no longer a mob

For just the other day, they called her by name and even called forward Bob

Oh! Denkyira Obuasi mob,

You are the Judas we never wanted to befriend

But for fate, we wouldn’t have met you

But for you, we still would have been the mob with no name.
