Player, player (Oye)
M pat di w sa?
Busy business, Allez-y

Depi w tande fin de Juin rive, se vakans
Tension agite (tension agite)
Zenglen pa t la nou rive, se anbyans
La jeunesse levez-vous

Anbyans Zenglen an big time
Big time, all the time
Anbyans Zenglen an total
Total, capital
Ane sa tout moun mean biznis
You got that right

Après neuf mois redi bouke, enfin nou pral defoule
Nou t ap priye, rele Bondye, enfin vakans lan rive
System education nou boule, sou subi l tout you ane
Men trois mois sa yo n pa negosye l , ban n kanè a pou n ale
Sa k gen moyen al lòtbò dlo, al chanje lè , al vizite
Gen sa ki di chalè a cho, chalè a cho, yo pa sa rete
M pa sa rete, yo oblije, al andeyò lakay yo
Sa k gen lavil yo vle kanpe, la gete tout kote w pase
C’est le temps dela rejouissance (wi, se lè vakans)
Se lè vakans, tout moun chante, pase pa pase
Busy biznis

Christmas, Christmas, Easter, Easter
Spring break, Spring break, Manch kout, Manch kout
Vakans, vakans, dété, d’été, Summertime
(M pèdi fren wi la mwen menm) Manch long
Christmas, Christmas, Easter, Easter
Spring break, Spring break, Manch kout, Manch kout
Vakans, vakans, d été, d été, Summertime, Summertime,
Manch long (Mazak, mazak, Men kompa)

[Guitar solo]

Vakans lan se pou ni travayè, elèv ak pwofesè
Menm paran yo kontan, yo jwenn you soulajman
Se etudiant ki gen plus presyon, aprè konpozisyon
Kou rezilta tonbe, tout moun mean business

Ane sa n mean business, Ane sa n mean business
Nan tout peyi w pase se aktivite, Ane sa n mean business
Wo, lò w tande you paran fache pask on timoun pa pase
Se pa rayi li rayi l , se pa detwi l vle detwi l
Se un an ki gaspiye, you investissement k ale
Men fò w pa dekouraje, L a gen chans li lòt ane
Ane sa n mean business, Ane sa n mean business
Oh, Zenglen busy business, Ane sa n mean business
Medam yo yo cho nan mall la, shopping, Ane sa n mean business
You look good baby, you look good

Vakans lan se pou ni travayè (yes aya) elèv ak pwofesè (yes ay)
Menm paran yo kontan, yo jwenn you soulajman
Se etudiant ki gen plus presyon, aprè konpozisyon
Kou rezilta tonbe, tout moun mean business
(Presyon an fini lage pye m , lage pye m , e saaaa)

[Piano solo]

Sa k prale, en allez, en alllez
Nou prale wo, Ban m ticket pou m al nan peyi mwen
Nou prale wo, Tout zanmi m gentan debake la
Nou prale wo, Epi plezi gaye Manhattan
Ey, Nou pral Okap nan fèt chanpèt an, an
Nou prale okay na gelée, an, an
Marchand Dessaline nan Sainte Claire
Nan Fonds-Parisien,nan lac la (Se pa vre Brutus)

Nou prale wo, Bwè dlo kokoye bò lanmè a
Nou prale wo, Nan Pòtoprens se la baz la ye
Nou prale wo
Ey! Nou pral Ti-Goave nan Notre-Dame an, an
Nou pral St-Louis nan le Récif an, an
Nou prale Jacmel, Léogane, an, an
Jérémie, st-marc, Gonaives, an, an
Depoze kompa

Five Diaspora Winter Anthems

A few weeks ago, all 50 states reached freezing temperatures. The Polar vortex may be gone, but most of us still can't feel our toes. Since humans can't hibernate, staying in and hunkering down is only a temporary fix. Plus, we have to brave the cold to pay those bills. Good thing, we have music to warm our souls. Quite a few Haitian artists have migrated to the States, Canada, and Europe. They've all experienced the winter blues and expressed their lingering homesickness in song. Here are a few of our favorites. They're a potent cocktail of frustration and nostalgia. We'd cry,...
