Panama’m Tombe

Lyrics - Haitian Creole

(Haitian folk song)

Panama mwen tonbé
panama mwen tonbé
panama mwen tonbé sa-ki-diyayé
ranmanse li pou mwen

Mwen soti la ville Jacmel
ma prale Lavale
an arivanm kafou Benè
panama mwen tonbé

English Translation – My Hat Fell Off

My hat fell off,
My hat fell off,
My hat fell off,
Whoever is behind me,
Please pick it up for me.

I left the city of Jacmel
I went to La Vallée
When I got to the intersection at Bainet
My hat fell off.
