I Guess MY Swahili Isn't As Good As Yours...

Wyclef Jean "Sang Fezi"

[right click to download, ctrl or option click if yr a mac!]

For years I never bothered to look up the translation of Wyclef Jean's "Sang Fezi" a haitian language track from his 1997 masterpiece 'The Carnival'. The song didn't really need a translation as it's mystique and beauty stood on its own. Before I put this up I decided to google a translation though. Maybe it was just a poor transfer, but some of the lines I got came out pretty ridiculous. Like:

Last goal if for Pele
Don't dis my mom, my mom is creole
My gun guides me
My direction sucks

What? I'm sorry I ever even looked it up. My advice to you would be to just enjoy "Sang Fezi" in its native language and not seek out any translations.

There are some errors in that translation. It is more like:

This is Pele's final goal
I defend my mother she brought me up
My gun guides me
Somebody oily is for sale
Always
