“Mr Mahama Ayariga, Presidential Spokesperson addressing a press conference at the Castle, Osu said, 'The publication that President Mills was angry with the complaints by Ghanaians, and could not take criticisms is not true'" (Ghanaweb, November 9, 2009)

 
Papa Mills
Tata Mills
Simpa Payin Mills
Tutu tutu tutu tuuuuuuuuu
Tutu tutu tutu tuuuuuuuuu
Don't let Ayariga's state tractors disturb our ears

Whether you beat the castle drums that Ghanaians complain

Whether you didn't trumpet that Ghanaians complain

We Ghanaians are complaining
You promised to hit the ground flying
But you hit the ground and broke your wings
You have become like the tortoise
Who saw the crocodile cross the Ofin
And boasted that it also had shells and would cross the Ofin

But remains confused and doesn't know how to cross the Ofin

The tortoise has become the laughing stock of the Ofin River deities

 
Papa Mills
Tata Mills
Simpa Payin Mills
Tutu tutu tutu tuuuuuuuuu
Tutu tutu tutu tuuuuuuuuu
Don't let Ayariga's state tractors disturb our ears

You have become the laughing-stock among Ghanaians

You no dey go you de come
Even Rawlings has snorted at you
Spio-Garbrah screamed at you
Bagbin yelled at you
Many in the NDC have squealed, screeched, shrieked, and shouted:

“Eh! Tata Mills whither are you taking us after eight years in the wilderness”

“Eh! Simpa Panyin why are thou taking us to political doomsday in 2012”

 
Papa Mills
Tata Mills
Simpa Payin Mills
Tutu tutu tutu tuuuuuuuuu
Tutu tutu tutu tuuuuuuuuu
Don't let Ayariga's state tractors disturb our ears

Fantes are complaining
Mills DE ADE BONE ABA MFANTSIMAN
Mills de adze bone aba Kotokoraba
Mills de adze bone aba nanom mpow mu
Mills wouldn't drink tea with Fantes in the castle

It is all about akpele in the castle
It is all about tuwe safi
Fante dokono is no more
Ga kenkey is on the sidelines
Akuapem mud-fish palm-nut soup has been poured away

Kwahu bat-soup has become sour  
Kufour Asante fufu is no longer allowed in the castle

Krobo face-the-wall (lapeewa) has gone through the wall

Akyem plantain has overriped in the hands of Akufo-Addo

Denkyira cocoyam has become too starchy
Akwamu yam has lost its seasoned taste  
 
Papa Mills
Tata Mills
Simpa Payin Mills
Tutu tutu tutu tuuuuuuuuu
Tutu tutu tutu tuuuuuuuuu
Don't let Ayariga's state tractors disturb our ears

Trotro/taxi drivers are complaining
Mills promised to buy petrol for all drivers for free

But turned to increase the price of petrol
Mills even forgot his policy of NDC love-child of cars, cars & cars

He forgot that Ayariga alone has five state tractors that need petrol

 
Papa Mills
Tata Mills
Simpa Payin Mills
Tutu tutu tutu tuuuuuuuuu
Tutu tutu tutu tuuuuuuuuu
Don't let Ayariga's state tractors disturb our ears

Fishermen are complaining
Mills promised that he would dry up the sea
So that fishermen could freely harvest fish
Mills is now aimlessly drowning in the Atlantic
Drowning head-long to catch fish for the fishermen

 
Papa Mills
Tata Mills
Simpa Payin Mills
Tutu tutu tutu tuuuuuuuuu
Tutu tutu tutu tuuuuuuuuu
Don't let Ayariga's state tractors disturb our ears

Mills promised the youth jobs, jobs, jobs
But Mills has given all the jobs for Konom-Teas
And Mills has encouraged the seizing of public toilets

As his avenue of job creation
The youth workers keep tally
Of the political flatulence
Yes hold your nose and mouth
Of the NDC free users of the commoditized toilets
 
Papa Mills
Tata Mills
Simpa Payin Mills
Tutu tutu tutu tuuuuuuuuu
Tutu tutu tutu tuuuuuuuuu
Don't let Ayariga's state tractors disturb our ears

Public/civil servants are complaining
Mills promised change
That every worker will get promotion
That every worker will work forever
But Mills turned around to fire workers
Yes, workers of NPP persuasion
Yes, workers of Akan persuasions
 
Papa Mills
Tata Mills
Simpa Payin Mills
Tutu tutu tutu tuuuuuuuuu
Tutu tutu tutu tuuuuuuuuu
Don't let Ayariga's state tractors disturb our ears

Even ALMIGHTY DELUSIONAL is complaining
Mills promised to seek his advice 24/7
But Mills has shunned him
Simpa Panyin Mills has ignored him
And when you ignore the DELUSIONAL
He goes political-berserk on all fours
 
Papa Mills
Tata Mills
Simpa Payin Mills
Tutu tutu tutu tuuuuuuuuu
Tutu tutu tutu tuuuuuuuuu
Don't let Ayariga's state tractors disturb our ears

Whether you beat the castle drums that Ghanaians complain

Whether you didn't trumpet that Ghanaians complain

We Ghanaians are complaining about your uncertain leadership
