Lyrics by: Jeff Policard

[Verse 1]
Li fè jou menm ti bras la pral kòmanse
Kòk la ap chante
Bèl solèy, san ou mwen pa wè anyen
Se balènn ki klere mwen
Yon lòt jou men se menm misyon an:
Bay moun lakay mwen lavi
M'ap di w mèsi Bondye, ou k’ banm fòs pou kontinye

[Chorus]
Kenbe la
Wout la long men n'ap kenbe
Kenbe la manman,
Avèk kouraj pedale monte
Kenbe la
Nou wè devan pi byen klere
Kenbe la manman
Avèk lafwa n'ap toujou kenbe konsa

[Verse 2]
Kòb machinn nan pòch mwen
Men si m mache m'ka kraze yon biswit a kafe
Pike desann Petyonvil vann de twa legim a pistach
Kòb lekòl la pa rive
Mwen vle pitit mwen konn li ak ekri
Pou yo pa sibi menm mizè mwen
Travay pou yon avni, goumen pou jwenn lavi
Se sèl sa ki fè m (2x)

[Chorus]
Kenbe la
Wout la long men n'ap kenbe
Kenbe la manman,
Avèk kouraj pedale monte
Kenbe la
Nou wè devan pi byen klere
Kenbe la manman
Avèk lafwa n'ap toujou kenbe konsa

[Bridge]
Kenbe men mwen...
Si w wè yon frè k'ap redi dan mòn nan (Mache avèk mwen)
Ofri l ti dlo pou l pa febli (Kenbe n’ap kenbe)
Pa fè byen pou jwenn kredi (Kenbe n’ap kenbe)
La richès pa vle di lajan (Kenbe n’ap kenbe)
Sa k nan kè w gen plis valè

[Chorus]
Kenbe la (Mwen di kenbe, wo o o o)
Kenbe la manman (Mwen di kenbe pou n rive)
Wout la long men n'ap kenbe
Kenbe la manman,
Avèk kouraj pedale monte
Kenbe la
Nou wè devan pi byen klere
Kenbe la manman
Avèk lafwa n'ap toujou kenbe konsa
Kenbe konsa
Avèk lafwa n'ap toujou kenbe

[Guitar groove]

Kenbe la (3x)
Kenbe la manman
Kenbe men m pa lage l

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...

This week our users added some great songs on WikiMizik. Here are a few lines that we found ourselves reading more than just once.

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...
