Haiti, mon pays
 Wounded mother I'll never see
Ma famille set me free
 Throw my ashes into the sea

Mes cousins jamais nés

In the forest we are hiding  Unmarked graves where flowers grow
Hear the soldiers angry yelling 
In the river we will go

Tous les morts-nés forment une armée
Soon we will reclaim the earth 
All the tears and all the bodies  Bring about our second birth

Haiti, never free
N'aie pas peur de sonner l'alarme
Tes enfants sont partis 
In those days their blood was still warm

Written by: WILLIAM BUTLER, WIN BUTLER, REGINE CHASSAGNE, TIM KINGSBURY, RICHARD R PARRY
