Sole Malad





















Latibonit O yo voye rele mwen
Yo dim Sole malad 
Sole malad li kouche
Latibonit O yo voye rele mwen
Le m te rive mwen jwenn Sole kouche
Le m te rive mwen jwenn Sole mouri
Kisa poum fe O poum antere Sole
Mwen di kisa poum fe O poum antere Sole

Sa fèm lapenn O
Pou’m antere Sole 
Se regretan sa pou’m antere sole 

Latibonits oh, I was summoned home 
I was told Sole was indisposed
Upon my arrival, I find Sole in bed
Upon my arrival, Sole was prounounced Dead
What will I do for Sole’s funeral
What will I do for Sole’s burial

Mom Dieu protège Haiti











Mom Dieu protège mom pays 
Au beau pays que mon cœur aime 
C'est lui que j'aimerai toujours 
C'est lui que j'aimerai quand même 
On m'a dit d'aimer et j'obéis
Mom Dieu protège mon Pays. 

Dear god protect  my country 
Ho beautiful country that I love
The one I will always adore
My country always my beloved  
They said to love, I obey 
Dear God protect my country

Twa Fey









Twa fèy, twa rasin o                  
Jété bliyé, ranmasé sonjé 
Twa fèy, twa rasin o                  
Jété bliyé, ranmasé sonjé         
Mwen genyen basen      
Twa fèy tonbé ladann,         
Jété bliyé, ranmasé sonjé 
      
Three leaves, three roots 
Throw away to forget, grab on  to remember
Three leaves, three roots 
Throw  away to forget,  grab on to remember
I have a basin
Three leaves fell in it
Throw away to forget, grab on to remember

Papa Guédé Bel Gason!

Papa Ghede is drop dead gorgeous 
Ghede Nibo is really good looking 
He always dressed in white to go to the white house.
Dressed all in white he looks like a deputy
Dressed all in black he resembles a senator


Hello, Gede Darling
Goodbye! Gede Nibo

Anatol Moute sou Tol

Anatol moute sou tol
la'l keyi korosol
gep panyol
mode'l nan dyol
li paka pale kreyol

Anatol climbed on thin roof
to pick a soursop
A wasp bit his upper lips
He can no longer speak  creole.

La Ren soley Leve O













La ren soley leve O
Bondeye voye'l ale
La ren soley leve O
Bondeye voye'l ale
Timoun nan you kriye O
"Timoun nan yo rele
"Le lapli tombe na plante pwa"
"O nap plante pwa"


My queen the sun is up
The lord made it So
My queen the sun is up
The lord made it So
Or children cried
Our children wailed
"When  it rains"
"We will grown bean"
"Oh we will grow beans"
