[Intro]
Wè...
Si genyen

[Verse 1]
Genyen ki jete dlo, genyen ki priye
Genyen k tèlman bay dlo ki prèske neye
Genyen se zòm pòtan politik griye
Genyen se granparan ke lavi pliye
Genyen se restavèk ke sosyete a bliye
Genyen se soufnantchou ke metropòl la triye
Genyen se krizokal Tonton Sam fè briye
Pou l ka sèvi avèk yo chak fwa l bezwen piye

[Verse 2]
Gen madan sara, gen endistriyèl
Gen moun ke refize wout dwat pou pran vye riyèl
Genyen ki onèt, genyen se vipè
E moun ou rekonèt pafwa se li ou pi pè
Genyen se bon frenn, genyen se bon grenn
Genyen se tèt pete, genyen se bon brenn
Genyen ki peye yon dèt men se pa li k dwe l
Genyen ki di men koulèv la men se pa li k touye l

[Hook]
Genyen wi la a, genyen wi (madanm, hmmm)
Genyen wi la a, genyen wi (si genyen)
Mwen di genyen wi la a, genyen wi (2x)

[Verse 3]
Gen gade san pran, gen pran san gade
Genyen san zepolèt ki pi chèf ke wo grade
Genyen pwofesè ki pa fè etid
Y’ap anseye moral men yo se pèfid
Gen pou achte, gen pou vann
Gen pou konprès, gen pou bann
Gen pou tout moun, tout kouch, tou plas
Tout bouch, tout klas, tout louch, tout tas
Genyen ki dyabolize, genyen ki demonize
Genyen ki posede yon batistè men ki san idantite
Gen sa ki sèmante demen ka bon,
Men fò l ta simante kèk vakabon
Genyen ki gen espwa, genyen ki gen lafwa
Genyen k’ape monte lesyèl pa do
Nasyonalite yo tounen yon fado
Genyen ki pa gen fas, ki pa gen do
Pou kisa se sa nou ba yo kòm kado
Genyen ki kwense, genyen ki prese
Genyen ki strese, genyen ki blese
Gen atis ki di tout voum se do
Gen BIC Tizon Dife

[Hook]

    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,...

    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...
