This paper examines some social values among the Yoruba as reflected in selected proverbial sayings as the basis of some anti-social behaviour that pervade the nation. The emergence of many parvenus through dubious means is no longer questioned. The vices of such people tended to be justified by this sayings by contemporary users. Implications of this are spelt out and the paper concludes that there is the need for proper usage and balanced education if the youths will not be misled to the detriment of the nation.
