Mama Loi Papa Loi
Exuma Lyrics


The sun is shining in the night
Zombies walking in the broad day light
Zombie he done lost his soul
Zombie he don't ever get old

Lord of darkness king of light
Come, come here on this stormy night
There is no star in the sky
I see fire in the dead man's eye
Mama Loi, Papa Loi,
I see fire in the dead man's eye.
Mama Loi, Papa Loi,
I see fire in the dead man's eye.

Touch me, touch me,
Fix my hand,
Let me see what's in the sand.

Man is boy,
And boy is man.
There ain't no boss,
There ain't no man.

I'll spit my spit,
In your spit.
Then let seven snakes,
Come up from the pit.
I'll stand under this mango tree.
Till you come, come to me.

Mama Loi, Papa Loi,
I see fire in the dead man's eye.
Mama Loi, Papa Loi,
I see fire in the dead man's eye.

I see fire,
I see fire in the dead man's eye.
I see fire, (fire)
Fire, fire, fire, fire,
(I see fire in the dead man's eye)
I see fire in the dead man's eye.
I see fire in the dead man's eye.
I see fire in the dead man's eye.

A spider crawled across my face,
Spreading it's web on the human race.
Jingo, Jingo he ain't dead,
He can see,
From the back of his head.

They tied ten onions 'round my naval string.
They baked it, and cut it,
And made it into a ring
Come on Shango, Satan come to me
Let me speak what I can't see.

Mama Loi, Papa Loi,
I see fire in the dead man's eye.
Mama Loi, Papa Loi,
I see fire in the dead man's eye.

I see fire,
I see fire in the dead man's eye.
I see fire, (fire)
Fire, fire, fire, fire,
(I see fire in the dead man's eye)
I see fire in the dead man's eye.
I see fire in the dead man's eye.
I see fire in the dead man's eye.
Fire, Fire...
I see fire,
I see fire in the dead man's eye.
I see fire, (fire)
Fire, fire, fire, fire,
(I see fire in the dead man's eye)
I see fire in the dead man's eye.
(I see fire in the dead man's eye.)
I see fire in the dead man's eye

Zombie he done lost his soul
Zombie he don't ever get old

Lord of darkness king of light
Come, come here on this stormy night

"There ain't no boss there ain't no man"
This line understands what made zombies scary to Haitians. The real fear of Haiti zombies, was not the fact that it was a dead man walking, it was the subliminal fear of not only being enslaved again, or slavery being reinstated... but the fear that not even death could free you from slavery.

That really is horrifying.

Beneath Shallow Waters

@Peace & Love You are wrong. Haitians have been moving to the Bahamas for centuries, and Voodoo also known as Obeah has long influenced Bahamian society.

@Peace & Love concepts related to zombi and loa also exist in other African descendant cultures in the area, in English speaking Caribbean countries they have a word "jumbee" for a zombie for example

@Blitzkrieg Drew Exuma is in the Bahamas, in the Atlantic Ocean.

Peace & Love

@Blitzkrieg Drew The song belongs exclusively to Haitian culture. Has nothing to do do with his birthplace

Blitzkrieg Drew

Skullkan6, wow. Brillant idea.
One more thing he was from the great Exuma in Caribbean Sea, not Haiti.
