Who Wins The Cockfight?

Lè de kòk ap batay

Ni kòk ki mouri-a
Ni kòk ki pèdi zepon'l la
se tou le de ki pèdi

Mèt kok la genyen
Mèt gagè-a genyen
Machann kòk batay yo genyen tou

Ni kòk ki mouri-a
Ni kòk ki pèdi zepon'l la
se tou le de ki pèdi

Kreyol pale, kreyol konprann

"e pou mwen fini zanmi mwen yo"
Kòm Carl Fombrun toujou di

Koninote aynsyen yo tounen gagè
ni an ayiti, ni a letranje

Gen kòk lespri
Gen kòk sòt

Yon-n gen pou mouri
Yon-n gen pou pèdi zepon'l

Ki kantik pran priyè
Kote mèt kòk la?

Lè nou tout pedi,
Na chache konnen
kiyès ki mèt kok la!

Nou tande?




The Haitian Cockfight

There is a lot of cockfighting going on in the haitian community.

We fight amongst ourselves
our kids live with the shame
while the world is laughing at us

It's like a cockfight...

If it does not stop, we all loose

Yes,

You will be dead and your kids will pick up where you left off.

Do not listen to anyone who make a few bucks
at the expense of a DIVIDED Haitian Community.

Do not listen to anyone who make a few bucks
at the expense of a DIVIDED Haitian Community.

Do not listen to anyone who make a few bucks
at the expense of a DIVIDED Haitian Community.

If you cannot stop them from broadcasting hatred and division,
do yourself a favor...

Just because you are not blessed with an education is not a reason
to just sit there and listen to people who constantly remind you
of how stupid and uneducated you are.

Anyone who is smart enough to clean toilets and wash dishes
to send their kids to college is smart enough for me.

Please, don't let anybody tell you "You're stupid but I love you!"

Haiti is a mess today because the previous generations did not take
care of their business.

My mother and my father took great care of their business:

They gave up their pride so that I can be a man today

As a man, it's my responsability to make sure my kids have a country

So I call upon my generation.

Let's clean this place up. Our parents sent us to school,
let us show them what we learned.
