----- LYRICS ------

The earth shook in Haiti
Everyone is lost
I do not know what happened

The earth shook in Haiti
Everyone is lost
I do not know what was the cause

Haïtiwo, Haiti
I do not know what was the cause

The cries of children
Direction is lost
I do not know what happened
Haïtiwo Haiti
I do not know what was the cause.

The earth shook in Haiti
Everyone is lost
I do not know what happened

The cries of children
Direction is lost
I do not know what happened
Haïtiwo Haiti
I do not know what was the cause

It is very dark
Despair has come
I do not know what happened

The rainstorm
Despair has come
I do not know what happened
The leaders and the wisemen are lost
What to do
I do not know what was the cause

Haïtiwo Haiti
I do not know what was the cause

The cries of children
Direction is lost
I do not know what happened
Haïtiwo Haiti
I do not know what was the cause.
