Dodo ti pitit manman

Lyrics Traditional Haitian Song Music arrangements by Paul Mindy
Performers Claudette Thégat

Dodo ti pitit manman
Manman-w ou pa la
L’alé larivyè
Si ou pa dodo djab la va manjé-w
Dodo pitit krab nan kalalou

Go to sleep my little one
Mommy is not here
She is at the river
If you don’t go to sleep, the devil will eat you
Go to sleep, little one, the crab is in the callow
