ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
1st song: Fanm Map Defann: I'm defending Women
I’m tired of spending my time
Observing the state of women
Who are suffering so much under the hits of the club.
I feel so indignant
When I hear of rape
Of women and young girls
It’s a crime against life!
Ye ye ye ye ye
I can never agree
They harm women so
Because they are the spirits
Who give life.
Chorus: Women, I’m defending
Women are our mothers
Respect them Honor them
Don’t violate them, it’s not right
Put on your best behavior
To be in the right
Women, I’m defending
Women are our mothers
Respect them Honor them
You have a mother and a sister
You know what I’m talking about my friend
Women, don’t let religion make you believe you’re weak
Women, you are a strong being and celebrated
What can a man do you can’t do?
What you can’t do, he can’t do either.
Nami nami nami name

2. C'est Ca Lamour: That's Right My love
I have fallen crazy for you
I would not have just anyone
To have you in my arms My sweet mama
I am so very jealous
When a man talks to you about love
I just want to affront them
 
REF: C’est ça C’est comme ça
L’amour Mon amour
That’s right! That’s how
Love is My love.
 
Would that I were the air that it was I
that you would breathe.
Or as the earth that your feet I would caress.
Or as the fire that it was my flames
that would warm you
Or as water that it was me that would bathe you
Then I would become one with the sun for no other reason than to be in your eyes for a moment
even if I would be consumed by the irresistible celestrial body
But my dust would return
to the earth and I would
spring up as roses
So that your eyes would touch me in another form
As if again I was a man Ah that you should know how much you mean to me! So be aware!

3-"Timoun yo" "The Children"
Look at the children in the streets
They are living like animals
No one cares for them
The leaders don’t do anything for them
Because it’s the money for the children
Which gets them big pots of money
From the foreigners who give charity.
The children
Help them

If we don’t want them to go bad
We have to put them in school
So they learn to read and write
So tomorrow they have a better life
If not we could be their 1st victim
When so many of them do crimes
I’m not a prophet, But I know that could happen.
The children
Help them
Children are the hope of tomorrow
Please treat them has human
Those that are rich and those that are poor
They should always find love,
Love, love, love

4-"Je Ne Suis" "I'm not happy"
When you see the images of people living on the margin
They have no help, yet they are getting lied to the most
There are those who taking revenge
Against the honest people (who want to help)
For the dishonest people
Who are believed as heros
But in reality are bullies
You have to be lucid
To discover these traitors
 
Ref: I am not happy because of those without
who can’t be happy they’re in such hunger.
 
It’s truly a time of craziness
Too many people are not living well
While at the same time there are millionaires
That are envisioning
Things that are so grand
While it’s not for the poor
It’s so unfair
With no happiness in their faces
They are starving like in a famine
Are they going to die without
Ever having happiness?

5-"Sak Travay Plis" "Those that work the most"

Ref: Those that work the most receive the least
Those who work the least receive the most

I have, my dear, to go to work in the factory
I'm working for our food
but always dragging through hell
Just for a little scrap of money
And then the supervisor sends in reports
his name is the inspector he thinks he's superior
he puts on lots of pressure without any reason
he hardly works yet he gets paid in US

Ref: Those that work the most receive the least
Those who work the least receive the most

In the government, they pay employees
to pick up what they throw out
the trash stinks making him want to vomit
he's obligated to continue or he'll be fired
the driver looks and he says get on
because he says: I'm going to do well with my woman
after I come back and have my own truck

Rap: Times are so hard
The people are treated like imbeciles
They have to work hard
Without getting paid their worth
Those who do the least receive the large salaries
Until the time the less fortunate cease working for them
in conditions their consciences can't accept
Oh no, no, no they are without any chance.
In such conditions which express the situation
Inadmissable for humans, they need a helping hand.

Those that work the most receive the least
Those who work the least receive the most

6: "N a Sonje" "We will remember"
We’ll remember, and
not forget what happened
Let’s take a look back
Into the world gone by and we’ll see
How our ancestors were in Africa
Before they carried us away
To America

Sing for Africa, Sing for America
Honor for Africa, Honor for America
Who lost so many in the years long ago
 
It wasn’t the inhabitants of this land
That did that to them
It was another nation
Who had as their mission
To make others slaves
Making so many cadavers
 
Pillaging, killing
Indians and Africans
In making them work for nothing
This is how their countries became powerful
by spilling so much blood.

Sing for Africa, Sing for America
Honor for Africa, Honor for America
Who lost so many in the years long ago
