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.
