LYRICS (HAITIAN CREOLE)

Mama iiiiiyeeee
Mwen soti nan yon ti zile
Kote van lapè pa janm soufle
Sa fè lontan nou divize vre
Pou zafè tè zafè koulè

Pa mande pa mande
Kisa nou yeeeee?
Ki di Ayisyen di mèveye
Woyo woyoy woyoy yoyyy yoyyy
Peyi a, peyi a pa ka ret konsa non,

Sa se timoun po boule yo
Zanfan libète yo
Woyo yoy wayayyyy
Pitit solèy, ki konn fè mèvèy
Nan lakou timoun yo danse petwo
Peyizan nan mòn yo danse ibo
Jouk nan nanm rasin nou makònen
Son sèl nou ye woyyyy

Se pou n mete men
Peyi a peyi a pa ka ret konsa non
Peyi a peyi a pa ka ret konsa non (x 2)

Nou kraze nou brize
nou pa jwenn yon solisyon
Gouvènman yo monte yo desann
Nou paf è yon pa, men nou bouke woy
Nou bouke woy
Pran kout ba nan move dirijan
Nan move dirijan

Ayisyen moman rive pou nou avanse
Vanse, vanse
Moman an rive pou nou fè linite
Linite

Ayisyen moman rive pou n vanse
Li lè li tan pou nou fè linite
Ann ale
Ayisyen li lè li tan pou n vanse
Vanse, vanse
