Savane
Ali Farka Touré Lyrics


J'ai quitte' mon pays et ma Louisiane
Mais dans d'autres pays, adieu Savane
J'ai trouve' le me'tro n'est pas un petit boulot Mais je suis, je suis un ne'gre
J'ai quitte' un ami et ma Lousiane
Mais dans d'autres pays, adieu Savane.
Au lieu de nous donner non seulement des bombes
Donnez nous des moto-pompes, pour qu'on puisse quand meme subvenir a' nos besoins naturels Pour trouver la vie et le savoir et la sagesse.

I left my country and my Louisiana
J'ai quitte' mon pays et ma Louisiane

But in other countries, farewell Savane
Mais dans d'autres pays, adieu Savane

I found 'the subway is not a
J'ai trouve' le me'tro n'est pas un

Little job But I am, I am a nigga
Petit boulot Mais je suis, je suis un ne'gre

I left a friend and my Lousiane
J'ai quitte' un ami et ma Lousiane

But in other countries, farewell Savane.
Mais dans d'autres pays, adieu Savane.

Instead of giving us not just bombs
Au lieu de nous donner non seulement des bombes

Give us motor pumps,
Donnez nous des moto-pompes,

So that we can still meet our needs
Pour qu'on puisse quand meme subvenir a' nos besoins

Natural To find life and knowledge and wisdom.
Naturels Pour trouver la vie et le savoir et la sagesse.

The fact I can't deny I am into reggae this music is pretty wild. It's different from the reggae I have experienced so far in my life. Don't know what to say . Thank you so much. You were our hero and a flavor of our continent. It's so disgusting to miss you from the face of this universe. You did your job great and memorable all the time.
Generations after generations will remember you. No one will ever and never forget what you did.
Thank you AAAAAAALLLLLIIIIIIIIIISHOOOOOO.
Much love! Respect! R.I.P
