Some say good girls fall in love with bad boys. Some say good boys cannot take care of their women because they are often boring. Some, and I dare say majority of women would love a mix of these two. But yet, the number of good girls who keep falling for bad boys seemingly keeps growing. For this, and on this subject is the entire theme of Irene Logan’s “My mind dey” track.
With the piano and guiter starting and the drums joining in, this beautiful jazzy love tune has been replaying in my head ever since I heard it in Adams’ Apples Chapter six.
The lyrics begin with Irene’s sultry voice singing, “Boy I love you. . . I no dey lie. . . boy I need you. . . cant deny. . . when you no dey. . . my heart dey go. . . when am with you. . . I don’t wanna go. . . I don’t wanna go my baby. . . ooooohhhh. . . . boy I feel you. . . I no dey lie. . . boy I need you. . . cant deny. . . when we kiss. . . it feels like heaven . . .when we touch. . . I don’t wanna go. . . I don’t wanna go my baby. . . .Boy my mind dey for you boy my heart dey I no fit how I miss you my baby boy my mind dey for you boy my heart dey I no fit how I miss you my baby. . . . . .
Of course while enjoying the love and company of such persons you will have some friends and family advising you against them. The man might not be suitable for society’s expectation and well, your friends and family might mean well and get your head, but seriously, if only they could say that to your heart. . . and so Irene’s beautiful voice continues to indulge in her love professing for her man. . .
“Friends dey talk say. . . make I leave you, . .. Friends dey talk say. . . you will never come, . . but when you are around, . . things dey better. . . hell I miss you, . . oh I don’t want to go my baby. . . Boy my mind dey for you boy my heart dey, . . I no fit how I miss you my baby, . . boy my mind dey for you boy my heart dey . . .I no fit how I miss you my baby. . .”
Irene is so in love with this man she is singing about in this track. I bet a lot more females will find themselves connecting with Irene on this record. He may not fit into your family and friends expectations but heck your heart is chasing him, and so Irene continues and tells him. . . “Baby I want your love, . . I need your love . . .oooooooo don’t leave me out. . . baby baby come closer now, . . put your arms around me baby, . . . don’t leave me out it’s so cold. . . Don’t leave me out it’s so cold. . . don’t leave me out it’s so cold . . .I want you baby. . . baby its so cold don’t leave me out. . . it’s so cold. . . Aw) di me oh, . . .aw) di me oh don’t leave me out it’s so cold. . . put your arms around me. . . show me that you love me only. . . oh baby am tired . . . in the cold. . . . . .
