[Intro]
Mikaben
Yeah
Haspen pon da beat again

[Hook]
Manmi Nwèl la rive
Tonton Nwèl pral pot anpil kado
Sanble m pa kalifye
Mwen pap vin pran nan barikad o
Timoun ap fete Nowèl (ey)
Granmoun ap fete Nowèl (ey)
Tout moun ap fete Nowèl (ey)
Tout stil mizik se Nowèl
Menm Afrobeat se Nowèl (Saw di m la? oh oh)
Menm Afrobeat se Nowèl (ou, e e)
(Afrobeat ou di Mika)
Menm Afrobeat se Nowèl (ou, oh oh)
(Haspen Money Beat)
Menm Afrobeat se Nowèl (ou, oh oh)
(M ap pase san eskanp)

[Verse 1]
Lè a rive
M paka tann, m paka tann, m paka tann ankò
Pou m al fete
M eksite, m pa fouti di w kisa k nan kò m
Lè m ap gade
Tout pwogram, tout afich, m wè se tout ki anfòm
Tout DJ pral byen pase
Tout djaz pral fè moun danse
Ou santi gen yon vayb do (sa e klè)
Yon vayb de fraternite
Tout moun anvi unite do
Pou toute la nativité
Ou santi w ap fè likes do
Menm IG mande anrage
Lèzòm pa vin pou fight
Pa gen bif ni joure, tout se lòv

[Hook]
Manmi Nwèl la rive
Tonton Nwèl pral pot anpil kado
Sanble m pa kalifye
Mwen pap vin pran nan barikad o
Timoun ap fete Nowèl (ey)
Granmoun ap fete Nowèl (ey)
Tout moun ap fete Nowèl (ey)
Tout stil mizik se Nowèl
Menm Afrobeat se Nowèl (ou, oh oh)
Menm Afrobeat se Nowèl (ou, e e)
(Afrobeat menm?)
Menm Afrobeat se Nowèl (ou, oh oh)
Menm Afrobeat se Nowèl (ou, e e)

[Verse 2]
Zigizaw
Kite m eksplike nou kijan mwen santi m yo
Nwèl la se toujou pi bèl epòk nan vi m yo
Se landan l fanatik mwen yo te dekouvri m yo
Depi lè a se avèk lòv yo vle kouvri m yo
G on dal mizik k ap lage men y ap tann Mika lage pa l la
Se li yo pral plis pase nan tout ti sourit, nan tout bal la
Machann fanal la rive (ey)
Granmoun timoun vin achte (ey)
Se kè kontan tout kote
Ou welepepe

Hook]
Manmi Nwèl la rive
Tonton Nwèl pral pot anpil kado
Sanble m pa kalifye
(Sanble m pa kalifye wi la)
Mwen pap vin pran nan barikad o
Timoun ap fete Nowèl (ey)
Granmoun ap fete Nowèl (ey)
Tout moun ap fete Nowèl (ey)
Tout stil mizik se Nowèl
Menm Afrobeat se Nowèl (ou, oh oh)
(Afrobeat se)
Menm Afrobeat se Nowèl (ou, e e)

Menm Afrobeat se Nowèl (ou, oh oh)
Menm Afrobeat se Nowèl (ou, e e)

[Outro]

Jwaye Nowèl tout moun

Bòn Ane
(Haspen Money Beat)
Woule bweson, respekte vè w

    Songwriter's Corner: Roody Laforest

    "Cheri, mwen konnen m pa ase." That's what Roody Laforest sings on his debut single, Mwen Pa Ase. It takes an honest man to admit his shortcomings. But after chatting with the Montreal-based singer, we realized though Roody tells it like it is, he can be a little too hard on himself. Wikimizik talked to him about his musical roots and writing process. We hope you enjoy his straight talk as much as we did. Who is Roody? How am I supposed to answer this question? Let's make it short...

    Albums We're Waiting For

    Though there's a couple of albums from last year we still can't get enough of, that doesn't mean we can't look forward to a great lineup in 2016. Here are some of the albums that we can't wait for this year. 1. Carimi Their last album, Invasion, has yet to come out the 5-disc changer in most people's cars. The live album, "Kite M Cho" made us fall in love with the tracks even more. With Michael's return to the band after a month-long vacation/mini retirement, we're sure...

    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...
