Aliyèt

Lyrics Traditional Guadeloupe song Music arrangements by Paul Mindy
Performers Roselaine Bicep

Aliyèt kontan manman-y pa la
I dansé on ti penm penm pen lenm
Aliyèt kontan manman-y pa la
I mété chapo a gran ribò
I mété wòb a gran volan
I mété jip a gran volan
I mété jipon a gran dantèl
I mété soulyé a gran talon

Aliette is happy, mother is not there
She dances a little penm penm pen lenm
Aliette is happy, mother is not there
She puts on a wide-brimmed hat
She puts on a ruffled dress
She puts on a ruffled skirt
She puts on a lace petticoat
She puts on high-heel shoes
