Bon Fête! Bon Mardi Gras! Bon Zulu!

Bon Fête! Mardi Gras Bon Fête!

Meh Zulu down the lane wit mask in hand

Footwork to dat African beat

Step, dip, twirl, jump and twist

Meh know di Truth ah di Cultah

Go Voodoo child Go!

Is dat rhytm dat keep di Queen Of New Orleans in  she steady heartbeat

Meh, Maaardiii Gras!

Fête until we tired cause we do it nicely

I see My Ancestors in dat Parade chile

Floatin down dat street

Throw me something, Mister!

Yuh guard dat Queen’s Seat

Shower me Oh Queen with Blessings

Make meh life Nice and Sweet

Twirl under my umbrella

Jump a second line!

Laissez le Bon temps Rouler!

Bon Fête! Bon Zulu! Bon Mardi Gras!

Culture Queen

I was sittin in meh yard

Watchin dem people ah go by

A woman run up to meh wit mad in she eye

She say you! You show meh di way

Meh say look around yuh nah from here di way is di same

She say nah meh have no muddah and no faddah

Now meh haffi stand to meh feet

Meh look pon she

How dare a kinswoman lie

Meh say woman .. you woman

You on di run

She mad eye turn madder

Yuh nah know meh she say and wit dat she pull out she cutlass

Meh say look here woman

Yuh see di I

Meh sit here in meh yard cool cool under di shade

All dis here from di Culture INI made

Yuh com here and disturb I peace and ask meh to show yuh di way

Culture is di only way woman and di Culture is she yuh see

Mad woman

Woman yuh mad .. Yuh nah see yuh ask di way of the Culture Queen

La Bella Catrina

On this auspicious Hallow’s Eve night

I wrap myself in your loving embrace

For this time of Harvest

I Harvest the Souls of my Ancestors

Those in need

Those walking proud and tall

Lady Samhain

La Bella Catrina

She lights them all

Showing the way to Freedom

Showing the way to Love

By the Light of the Harvest Moon

Lady Samhain

La Bella Catrina

Will gather them all.
