English Translation of Haitian Creole text:

I salute you, my friend,
With the utmost honor.
You shall answer me, please,
With the utmost respect.
In the homes of good people
That is how it’s done… Honor and Respect!

You show respect for me, I give honor to you;
We shall sit and chat like two lovebirds.
“Good day, sir. Good day, madam;”
These are good manners in my country.

There is no cursing, there is no fighting;
Coarseness is uproar.
You welcome me with open heart,
I shall enter with all my heart.

Honor and Respect, that is the way;
Diplomacy, that is the key!
