This song blends traditional and original lyrics and reminds Haitians to stay honest and true with each other because in the end they are the ones who will always be there to look after each other in good times and bad.


I’m here in good times, I’m here in bad times
We’ll always meet no matter what (x2)
Remember what we talked about
Remember the secrets we told each other
In Latibonit there is a river that crosses its mother
But not its father (x2)
This year gives us the wind to carry us abroad
Foreigners give us their smiles
But don’t give us their hearts (x2)


We make the good times and the bad times
We give wisdom and we give happiness
We’ll always meet no matter what (x2)
We make the good times and the bad times
We give wisdom and we give happiness

The flood is coming, the rain is falling
Tell the people, like it or not a change is coming (x2)
If it comes down to it, I will beg for a living (x2)
We’ll do it with love my brothers and we’ll do it together (x4)
