Dodo ti pitit manman

Lyrics - Haitian Creole

(Haitian folk song)

Dodo ti pitit manman
Dodo ti pitit papa
Si li pa dodo, krab la va manje
Si li pa dodo, krab la va manje

Manman ou pa la, l ale la rivyè
Papa ou pa la, l ale peche krab
Si li pa dodo, krab la va manje
Si li pa dodo, krab la va manje

English Translation – Sleep Little One

Sweet sleep, mommy’s little one
Sweet sleep, daddy’s little one
If you do not sleep, the crab will eat you
If you do not sleep, the crab will eat you

Your mommy’s away, she’s at the river
Your daddy’s away, he’s trapping some crabs
If you do not sleep, the crab will eat you
If you do not sleep, the crab will eat you
