Lyrics by: Tantan & Shabba

Tablèt lakòl tòtòt mango
It’s Tantan aka the love king
This is Shabba wo la gel
Manje – nou pral manje mango

[Verse 1]
Mesdames et Messieurs la table est servie
Ce matin on va manger dans le jardin
Une courtoisie c’est a dire
Avec élégance avec la cadence
Ouhh – on va manger la mangue
Ouhh – on va couper la mangue

Depi mape mache mpa janm wè on fanm konsa
Fanm nan tèlman bonbe devan’l tankou on mango
Mango fil ou mango fransik a bout anba sa cherie mpa bwè pwa
Tòtòtòtòtòtòtòt – ouhh mtounen yon ti bebe
Tòtòtòtòtòtòtòt – kap souse yon tete

[Verse 2]
Messieurs la table est servie
Ce matin on va manger dans le jardin
Une courtoisie c’est a dire
Avec élégance avec la cadence
Ouhh – on va manger la mangue
Ouhh – on va couper la mangue

Ti mesie pare couto nou pou’n koupe mango

Gade kijan’l dous

On va manger (2x)
On va manger la mangue
Avan’w manje fòk ou rense
Lè’w fin rense ou mèt koupe
Lè’w fin koupe fòw separe – kisa nou pral koupe
Men se konsa nan peyi pam nou koupe nou koupe - nou separe

Nan nan nan nan nan nan nay – nan nan nan na nay
Nan nan nan nan nan nan nay – nan nan nan na nay
Mango fransik sa - se li mwen vle
Mwen di mango biskèt sa - se li mwen vle
Ay ti mango fil sa – se li mwen vle
Konsa mta karese’l – chacha
Mwen ta manje’l – mianmmiam
Lè mwen fin pran feeling mwen – banm fè tòtòt mwen
Ah ah ah ah wè
Eh eh eh eh eh eh eh eh



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,...
