E Si’l Pavle Vini – English translation

E Si’l Pavle Vini (What if He Don’t Want to Come)
This is not what we wanted
This is not what we were searching for (seek)
But that’s what they gave us
Why are we still letting our oppressors give us Jezi (Jesus)
While they take our Vodoun?
They tell us Vodoun is evil
We know it’s not true
They are the evil ones.
They seduce us with money
And make us turn our backs on love
Since a child they’ve been given me Jezi (Jesus)
So I won’t end up in the streets
But they never showed me “Lakou soukri” (Vodou temple)
Then why are we still the ones suffering
Haitian people say:
Wrap me up, tie me down
Bury me in an old tarp.
I would rather sleep on a bed of dried leaves (Niche paille)
Then die without Jezi (Jesus)
(Bis)
The oppressors are dropping bombs
Jezi (Jesus) doesn’t want to come
They massacred Cite Soley
Jezi (Jesus) doesn’t want to come
Minusta brought us Colera
Jezi (Jesus) doesn’t want to come
AIDS everywhere
Jezi (Jesus) doesn’t want to come
gou Feray come
Jezi (Jesus) doesn’t want to come
Danbala come
Jezi (Jesus) doesn’t want to come
All of Tiginen come
Jezi (Jesus) doesn’t want to come
Hey…the army…Come
Jezi (Jesus) doesn’t want to come
Let this song play
So the children could here it
For the world to move forward
Don’t teach them warfare
Let’s give them more love
So tomorrow will be beautiful
Eh…Jezi (Jesus) doesn’t wanna come
The evil ones destroyed all of Afrika
(Vodoun) Priests hate Priests
(Vodoun) Priestess hate Priestess
The pastors are doing the bidding of the oppressors
You come to my land and kidnap my brothers
You gave us earthquakes
The oppressors want to finally take over Haiti!!!
Wrap me up, tie me down
Bury me in an old tarp.
I would rather sleep on a bed of dried leaves
Then die without Jezi (Jesus)
Haiti Goudou (Earthquake) Goudou (Earthquake)
Jezi (Jesus) doesn’t come.

I swear I don’t know how I’m on this earth.

(Bis)
Wo iya woye: jezi doesn’t want to come
Wo iya woye: jezi doesn’t want to come
