Si yon jou mwen ta pati byen lwen
Fòk nou sonje pwoblèm lavi ki mande sa
Ayiti, ou se peyi an mwen
Pa g'on rezon k'ap fèm pati pou'm pa tounen
Jodi-a m'al travay, m'al travay pou 200 dola
Madanm pou m okipe, telefòn pou mwen peye

Santi kè m kap dechire, zantray mwen kap rache
M'sonje'w, m'sonje'w, Ayiti cheri mwen

[Chorus]
Mwen sonje peyi mwen
Mwen sonje zanmi mwen
Mwen sonje fanmi mwen

Mwen sonje peyi mwen (Sonje!)
Mwen sonje zanmi mwen (Ayiti cheri!)
Mwen sonje fanmi mwen

(Solèy lavil se ou papa)

[Hook]
Kòman nou ye?
Eske nou la?
Sak pase?
Eske n'anfom?

San kap koule nan venn mwen
Chalè solèy ou banm lavi cheri
Ayiti, tan pou m kite'w, m'pito mouri cheri
Pap sa kenbe, m'bezwen tounen
Zantray mwen kap rache
Sonje, sonje Ayiti cheri mwen

[Chorus]
Mwen sonje peyi mwen
Mwen sonje zanmi mwen
Mwen sonje fanmi mwen

Valè pale yo pale
Valè ranse yo ranse
Yo pap kraze Ayiti (Pa gen sa pyès)

Valè pale yo pale
Valè ranse yo ranse
Valè pale yo pale
Yo pap kraze Ayiti
(Ayiti se peyi m, se pa ou anyen...Jezi, Marie, Jozèf)

Se la m kite manmanm, adye
Se la m kite papa m, zanmi m, fanmi m
Ayiti, mwen pap sa kite ou
Chak fwa m sonje'w, se dlo kape koule manmi
M'sonje'w m'sonje'w, Ayiti cheri

Jodi a m'al travay, m'al travay pou 200 dola
Madanm pou m okipe, telefòn pou mwen peye
Santi kè m ap dechire, zantray mwen ap rache
M'sonje'w, m'sonje'w, Ayiti cheri mwen

Mwen sonje peyi mwen
Mwen sonje zanmi mwen
Mwen sonje fanmi mwen

Mwen sonje peyi mwen
Mwen sonje fanmi m Ayiti
M'pap sa kenbe...Anmwey!




BIOGRAPHY
  • Michel Martelly, better known as "Sweet Micky", was born February 12, 1961 in Port-au-Prince, Haïti, He is a haitian performing and recording artist, composer, and musical sociopolitical activist. Martelly served as President of Haiti after winning the presidential election in 2011. Martelly is more popularly and affectionately known as "Sweet Micky", a moniker sometimes used interchangeably to refer to himself as well as his band (with original members, guitar player Alex Tropnas and bass player Welton Desire).

    Michel Martelly has been heralded as a pioneer of a unique brand of kompas music, a style of Haitian dance music sung in Haitian Creole language. Originally, compas was a fusion of Afrolatin jazz and African/Haitian folkoric rhythms, and was traditionally played by large bands composed of numerous group members and instrument sections. Martelly, a keyboardist and the self-proclaimed "bad boy" President of Compas, popularized a nouvelle generation, or "new generation" style, of smaller bands with few members that relied predominantly on synthesizers and electronic instruments to reproduce a fuller sound. Martelly's and Sweet Micky's live performances and recordings are sometimes laced with obscenities and humorous sociopolitical commentary by Martelly. Outlandish and outspoken, Martelly has been known to drink publicly while performing in wigs, costumes, diapers, and Scottish kilts, and occasionally removed his own attire while performing. While arguably the most recognized and applauded musician and public personality in Haiti, Martelly's performance style has sometimes ignited controversy throughout the Haitian diaspora.
