Ayiti ala'm kontan wè'w.
Pòtoprens, pou jan m'anvi wè'w.
Ayiti ala'm kontan wè'w.
Haïtiens, mes frères, pou jan m'te anvi wè'n.

Depi ayewopò, mwen santi'm transfòme
Radyo, televizyon, jounalis, tout te vinn rankontre m
Yo soti tout kote pou yo vinn akeyi nou
Mwen te telman sezi, mwen pat menm ka pale

An n chante!

[Chorus]
Ala kontan m'kontan aswè a m'nan peyi'm, (Mezanmi!)
Ala kontan m'kontan, aswè a m'avek zanmi'm
Ala kontan m'kontan, aswè a m'avek fanmi'm yo
Ala kontan m'kontan, aswè a m'nan peyi'm.

Sikilasyon bloke sou tout wout Montana
Onzè diswa sonnen, n'ateri Chez Harry's
Nou bwè bon Barbancourt, nou manje bon griyo
O! Mèkredi premye mas, s'on jou m'pap sa bliye
A'nn chante!

Ala kontan m'kontan aswè a m'nan peyi'm, (Mezanmi!)
Ala kontan m'kontan, aswè a m'avek zanmi'm (Wi, se vre)
Ala kontan m'kontan, aswè a m'avek fanmi'm yo
Ala kontan m'kontan, aswè a m'nan peyi'm.

[Hook]
Ayiti cheri, se ou k' ban'm lavi
Menm si mal kite'w, yon jou fòm retounen nan pye'w.

Ayiti cheri, “Perle des Antilles”
Menm si m'al kite'w yon jou fò'm retounen nan pye'w.
Ayiti kinan mwen, Ayiti bèl fanm mwen
Menm si m'al kite'w yon jou fò'm retounen nan pye'w.

Ayiti cheri, se ou k' ban'm lavi
Menm si mal kite'w, yon jou fò'm retounen nan pye'w.

Ayiti cheri, (Ayiti!) se ou-k ban'm lavi (Manman mwen!)
Menm si mal kite'w, yon jou fò'm retounen nan pye'w.

“Perle des Antilles,” Ayiti cheri
Menm si m'al kite'w, yon jou fò'm retounen nan pye'w.
Ayiti Toma, mon pays cheri,
Menm si m'nan Nouyòk Siti, yon jou fò'm vinn dodomeya nan pye'w

Ayiti cheri, se ou-k ban'm lavi
Menm si mal kite'w, yon jou fò'm retounen nan pye'w.

Lanèj mèt ap tonbe, fò'm ale travay
Nou bouke!
Li mèt "below zero," m'oblije al ponche
Nou bouke!
Menm si mwen fatige, fò'm al peye "bill" mwen
Nou bouke!

Nou bouke!
Nou bouke manje manje chinwa
Nou bouke!
Nou bouke antre nan tou "subway"
Nou bouke!
Nou bouke bat lè nan faktori

[Hook]
Ayiti cheri, se ou k ban'm lavi
Menm si mal kite'w, yon jou fò'm retounen nan pye'w.

For Mom

That voice in your head isn't your conscience. It's your mother, whispering "Pitit mwen, sa a w'ap fè la a?" Reminding you that you're better than this. Telling you to dust yourself off and finish what you started. Urging you to be as great as she knows you were destined to be. Because that's what mothers do. She always knows best and always wants the best for you. Whether your mother is a short drive away, a phone call away, or in heaven watching down, these songs remind us that the our greatest...
