English Lyrics:

Haiti is a pretty sea, a stunning mountain with beautiful rivers

It's pretty beaches with coconut trees, lovely landscapes with bright colors

Haiti is the aroma of coffee that goes up my nostrils at dawn

It's the scent of dew drops that's set for the budding flowers of 10o'clock of the morning

Haiti is Basin Blue, the Pichon waterfalls along with Saut D'eau

It'sthe Arcadins isles, the Citadelle castle, it's Labadie and Marigot

Haiti is La Valée, Macaya's Peak, Marmelade and Pilboreau mountains

Haiti is a sweet and enticing home-made candy bar, it's a handful of grilled peanuts

It's a creamy smoothie that gives energy, it's an enticing bottle of ice cola

Haiti is some appetizing fried pork, it's a delicious fritter, some tasty fried goat

It's a delicious vegetable stew laden with crabs, it's flavorful rice with country greens

Haiti is a scrumptious broth, a pumpkin soup well-seasonedwith bell peppers

It's mouthwatering cassava with peanut butter

That you dip in a corn shake

Haiti is a dumpling that's soaking in a bean dip

It's pig woods, some good liquor

Haiti is the divine coffee that you drink at night

Haiti baby, as much as I love you

I've come to put my heart in your hands

Haiti baby, as much as I adore you

Nothing will let me let go ofyou

Haiti baby, as much as I love you

I've come to put my heart in your hands

Haiti baby, as much as I adore you

Nothing will let me let go of you

Haiti is pounding music, a street music band parade, a troubadour

It's a ceremony, a calabash dish, and a drum

Ayiti is Ogou's land, the land our ancestors left for us

It's where slavery was abolished, it's the land of the free and the land of Vodun

Haiti is festivals, it's Little Mouse, it's ritual dances of Chanpêtre

It's dancing and fun at carnival, it's a little island that never sleeps

Haiti is a game of dominoes, it's a winning hand of dice and cards

It's a Christmas Eve party with some good broth, that's where you hold your head up

Haiti is a collective of farmers who get together to work the land

It's the women street vendors descending down the city

To go fight the hard life head to head

Haiti is a little kid that's dreaming of a bright future

It's the dirty water from sewer streams that doesn't quite know where it's going

Haiti is being under the tent since January 12th

It's mud on the levees that gives off a foul smell every time it rains

Haiti is the ground that doesn't know true realities

It's a sad one, but by God's grace, it's not the only one that we can sing

Haiti is a mother that doesn't know the meaning ofpain

Who stands strong and tall, who's brave—even though she's conscious that she's far from perfect

Haiti is a beautiful woman who's been through a whole lot

But who cleans up nicely so that her kids can walk with their heads up—proud

Haiti, it's all these things that make us love you

Even if the road is long, I know that we'll always be here to hold your hand

Haiti baby, believe you me

Nothing will ever make me leave you

Let this song right here serenade you
