about

This song encourages people to keep calm and stay cool no matter what the world throws at them and what people around them say. The chorus is from a traditional song and, in typical rara style, takes a boastful tone. The singer flexes his musical muscles and calls out “don’t challenge us,” with an implicit but unspoken “Or else” hidden in the context. Newly written lyrics chide those that talk behind people’s backs and cast suspicion on the innocent.

lyrics

Stay calm people, stay calm
I said stay calm, stay calm people!
The people who badmouth me
I don’t pay them any attention
I’m sending you this message
Stay calm!

Chorus
Stay calm people, stay calm (x2)
The people who badmouth me
I don’t pay them any attention
I’m sending you this message
Stay calm!

Staying calm is the best cure, no, no , no
You can’t fall if you are not guilty, yes, yes, yes
I am the strongest, I beat you
I break the record, you agree
After this whooping your little heart beats fast
You’ll beg God to end your misery
I’ll put you to rest so just sit and stay calm!

People speak about what they see
They speak about what they don’t see
They are gossipers. They gossip about me. (x2)

(Chorus)

They are here (looking suspicious) (x4)
We throw water (but it’s not to get anybody wet) (x4)
(They badmouth us enough) (x4)
