lyrics

SEW

Tou sa ou ja fè
Sa pa janmè asé
Tou sa ou ja vwè
Tou piti lè ou vin konparéy
Tou sa ou konèt
Kon ti gout adan dlo lanmè
Ou mété’w an tet
Sa moun ni toujou méyè

Mè sèlman
La vi pa fèt kon sa
Tout chimen ka mèné mem koté la
Pon moun pa pli pré
Nou tout’ ni mem valè

Chorus
Si ou pa enmé ko la ki ta’w lespri aw
tout’ sa ki adan kè aw ki moun ké fè’y baw
Si ou pa kontan chimen la ou chwazi
Espéryans ou ja ni ka définiw
Ki moun ké kontan baw
Si ou pa enmé ko la ki ta’w lespri aw
Tout’sa ki adan kè aw ki moun ké enmé’y baw
On sel moun pé kontan chimen la ou chwazi
Espéryans’ ou ja ni ka définiw
On sel moun pé kontan baw
Séw


Si ou té pli bel
Si ou té pli entélijan
Lanmou pasionel
Té ké swanyé tout kou ou ja pren
Réisit pwofésyonel
Té ké suiv natyrèlmen
On lanné nouvel
Té ké souri’w tou bonemen

Mè sèlemen
La vi pa fèt kon sa
Tou chimen ka mèné mem koté la
Pa ni yon mèyè
Si ou la, sé pas ou ni plas aw

Chorus

Rap
“La vi-a rèd”
An senten ou ja tan refrain la sa
Konbyen fwa adan vi aw on moun ja di’w sa?
Si a pa sosyété la ki an perdisyon
sé lanm an nou “pauvres pécheurs” ki bizwen absolisyon tout’
Koté ou gadé sé négativité
on pakèt a lespri kondisyoné pou toujou pè
Vyé sentiman senti menti pa jen las fè pitit
Pas nou tou’t maré an lespri an nou kon ti kabrit
Ou Toujou ni on rézon pou’ po ‘satysfè
Pas ou pa vlé kompran’ jan aw ja parfè
Ego aw ka pran trop’ plas trop’ kras trop mas
Lanm aw vin las a fos I eséyé chasé
(lé) Mové vibrasyon an tout’direksyon ka briléw
Kon vyé radiasyon jan humiliasyon ka bléséw
Fo ou fè atensyion fè meditasyon protéjew
Sonjé “Lanmou sé sel medikaman nou ni”

Sé limiè a bondyé ki la ka briyé
Dépi la tè ouvè zyé i la ka kléré mé
Sé vou ka chwazi si ou vlé maché la jouné
Ou si ou préféré tribiché lè lannuit ja tombé
Pa lésé konfyans a’w maché a pyé
Lè dout aw la ka woulé an BMW
Pa ni tan a pèd, ayen pa rèd, pa pè on mèd
Lanmou pa ka dead, sé vou ki an mèt de a à z

Chorus
