lyrics

Yon Jou La Jou (One Day It’ll Be Your Day)


1
A donkey struggling under a yolk
That’s trying to climb a hill under the pressure of big blows
Others that don’t like him don’t stop pointing fingers
They say it was him who ate the garden of Mr. Ti Kwet
All the bad things they put on his back in packs
His own brothers who share the same blood with him are betraying him

Refrain:
Haiti even though you’re getting old, you’re still in a crib
You find jokes to laugh at, but your eyes are always full of tears
They’re making you crawl up Kilamanjaro backwards
A mountain that is so high ooo
I believe this will change, I’m getting ready
I said I’m getting ready, who else wants to get ready?


2
It’s they who don’t stop eating secretly
When your neck is long and boney,
They curse you as worthless and dirty
They ask on your behalf, but you will never get any of the treats
Why are these people playing exploiting games
Each time you give your heart away, you regret it afterward
In reality, this never should have happened

Guitar Solo

3
One day it will be your day, and it will not be like other days
I want to tell you, little dear
You’ll have to search to find suffering
In every bamboo hole,
like crazy people with candles, you will be singing everywhere
Haiti all your ways will be sweet like « rapadou »
Tasty like « ragou », they will all want to taste you
Those who were kicking you away, putting their feet on you,
Will flirt with you, bringing flowers to you

Refrain

4
One day it will be your day,
They will serve you at the table just like part of the family too
They’ll show you to the water so you can quench your thirst

One day it will be your day
Where other nations will try to learn to speak Creole too
Every Haitian will find it good to defend you
Haiti dear, God has a lot of plans for you
He sees your suffering

Refrain
