A song about a woman responding forcefully to the advances and catcalling of men. The guy asks, “Where are you going again? The party is right here” to which she replies, “I’m going somewhere else, I’m not going with you.” Invoking a traditional Jankunu song, a man comments “what a pretty wiya waist,” catcalling her for her figure. She responds to this, “Don’t watch me, look at yourself before you talk to me!”
