lyrics

Ibo Lele, Latibonit, granmoun pa jwe o
Ibo Lele, Ibo Lele o
Ibo Lele Latibonit, granmoun pa jwe o
Si'm te la le grann mwen te la
Si'm te la le grann mwen te la
Si'm te la le grann mwen te la
Li ta montre'm danse Ibo
Ibo, Ibo Lele

(english Lyrics)
Ibo Lele, the Artibonite [a river and region in Haiti]
The elders don't mess around
Ibo Lele, Ibo Lele o
Ibo Lele, the Artibonite
The elders don't mess around
If I were there when my great Grandmother was there
She would have taught me to dance Ibo
Ibo,
Ibo Lele
