Jaspora
Wyclef Jean Lyrics


Men sa le monde antye tap tann
Wyclef qui sot nan Fugee

Jeremie! Ayiti! Potoprens! Flatbush!
Sout fiere d'etre Haitien mache

Jaspora n'pa respecte Jaspora

Depui mwen piti, mwen te kite Ayiti
Gen sa ki al Brooklyn, gen sa ki al Miami
Poukisa Jamayken toujou di se Jamayken?
Men Ayitien, pè di li se Ayitien
Poukisa ou pè di non se Samyèl?
Poukisa sa ou pé di'w ave Israel?
Poukisa ca chak swe ou ap domi a Jezabèl?
Ou pè di fanm ayisyen oh ke yo bèl?
Fanm nou bel

Mwen respecte nou tankou
Mwen respekte zanj Gabriyèl
Men nèg dyaspora vle mennen nou nan hotel
Tombe parle anglais, vire "playboy channel"
Yo pa respecte Israel

Jaspora n' pa respecte Jaspora
Si c'est Jaspora li ye map voye' l'Americaine
Jaspora n'a pas respecte Jaspora
Si c'est Jaspora liee aswè a nap dezame'l

Jaspora ha ha, oh la men
Mape pran li jete il prizon
Map fè'l konnen kiles ki Tousen
Map fè'l konnen kiles ki Desalin
Apre sa nous mèt lage'l voyel back Brooklyn
Pou la'l jwenn manman'n kap fe manje nan kwizin
Mannan'n gade li di ti gason ou chanje
Li di mwen chanje paske se Ayitien mwen ye
Yo te ban mwen yon leson, yo te mete'm nan prison
Mwen wè dyaspora fi, dyaspora gason
Gen sa ki pap toune ape domi a pwason
Yo pedi konesans kankou yo fèt san relijyon

Dyaspora n'pa respekte dyaspora
Si se dyaspora ou ye mape voye'w bay reken
Dyaspora n'pa respekte dyaspora
Si se dyaspora ou ye aswè a nap dezame'w
Le Potoprens pa respecte Jaspora

Nèg Flatbush pa respecte Jaspora
Nèg Canada pa respecte Jaspora
Nèg Miami pa respecte Jaspora

Depui mwen piti, mwen te kite Ayiti
Gen sa ki al Brooklyn, gen sa ki al Miami
Poukisa Jamayken toujou di se Jamayken?
Men Ayitien pe di li se Ayitien
Pouki sa ou pe di non se Samuèl?
Pouki sa ou pe di'w avec Israel?
Pouki sa chak swe ou ap domi a JeZabèl?
Ou pè di fanm ayisyen oh ke yo bèl?
Fanm nou bel

Mwen respecte nou tankou
Mwen respecte zanj gabriyèl
Men nèg dyaspora vle mennen noun nan hotèl
Tombe pale anglais, vire "playboy channel"
Yo n'pa respecte Israel

Jaspora n'pa respecte Jaspora

Si se Jaspora ou ye mape voyo'w bay reken

Jaspora n'a pas respecte Jaspora

Si se dyaspora ou ye aswè a nap dezame'w
Pa Kayos pa respekte dyaspora
Papa Djoume pa respekte dyaspora
Refugees pa respekte dyaspora
Nèg Florida pa respekte dyaspora
Malfini bagay yo pral fini mal,
Sou'w desrespecte natif natal
Malfini bagay yo pral fini mal
Desrespecte ayisyen ou pral kout fistibal
Jaspora n'pa respecte Jaspora
Si se Jaspora ou ye mape voy o bay reken
Jaspora n'pa respecte Jaspora
Si se Jaspora ou ye aswè a nap dezame'w

you know a song is great when you're singing along and you dont know the language

Toulon Quest

True.

Tyler Durden

This what makes this part of the album timeless. Maybe understand 10% of the words but it's infectious. I'm certain over the years Haitians pulling up next to me in traffic seeing some random white dude cranking this must've been confused.

Toulon Quest

Hell yeah. I like Kryeol Haitien. It sounds very live.

Facts

Stacey Tunstill

I'm from South Carolina. In 1997 I was a US Peace Corps Volunteer in Haiti, where I was introduced to the music of the Fugees. I was blessed to experience firsthand the impact of this music on the beleagured people of Haiti. I'll never forget the first time I heard Yele, on a camion, in the mountains between PauP and Jacmel. Everyone was singing their hearts out. It was beautiful.

nomibe2911

Wyclef was a major force in Miami when Haitians were ashamed to represent their nationality. I remember being in Miami and people used to lie about being Haitian and when Wyclef came out and represented hard and made it cool to be Haitian then everybody represented. Wyclef deserves a lot of credit for that.

Junior Bucinthe

True

Stacey Tunstill

From the blan perspective, people of Haitian descent need to STAND UP and BE PROUD and SUPPORT the talented and passionate people and culture of Haiti. I'm not Haitian but I have lived in Haiti. It is magnificent and unique in all the world. The poverty has killed the confidence of the people. Just when things finally looked a bit better the quake... I see you Haiti. I love you. You are special and your people deserve the same opportunities that free people have all over the world. Remnen...

Courtney Collum

I was married to a Haitian when this came out and he introduced me to an awesome culture...but could never explain this reference fully. He said it's like an immigrant shedding his culture in order to be American. In my Black culture we call them Oreos. That was an hourlong explanation from me and we agreed to disagree lol. I love Caribbeans!!
