Fatou yo si dia dialano
Fatou yo si dia dialano

Fatou faye faye fatou
Fatou kélémen dio
Fatou yo si dia dialano

Boutoumbélé boutoumbélé
Boutoumbélé
(repeat twice)

O ma mi se ra
O Ma mycasse boutoumbélé
(repeat)

Fatou yo si dia dialano
Fatou yo si dia dialano
(repeat)

English Translation – I am Fatou

I am Fatou, pretty Fatou,
I am Fatou, pretty Fatou.
(repeat)

Fatou oh, oh Fatou,
Like all the children of the world
I am Fatou, pretty Fatou.
(repeat)

I am happy and will surely grow up
I am happy and will surely grow up
(repeat)

I will grow up like everybody else
Like the little elephants and the little giraffes
(repeat)

I am Fatou, pretty Fatou,
I am Fatou, pretty Fatou.
(repeat)
