Deye mon gen mon
Behind mountains there are mountains
Dan pouri gen fos sou bannann mi
Rotten teeth have strength over rip bannanas
Even the weak have their strengths
Gran ke wa yo ye, yo menm bagay ak nou.
As great as the kings are, they are just like us.
Inside, we are all human.
Si kalmason te bon vyann, se pa nan mitan chemen you ta jwen li
If the slug were good meat, one wouldn’t find it in the middle of the road.
Good food disappears quickly
Ti poul pa mande plim; le mande lavi.
The baby chicken doesn’t ask for feathers; it asks for like
A poor man doesn’t want much.
