Taper taper la main – oh Lo o laé lai lala Clap, clap. Taper taper la main – oh lo laé Clap, clap. Taper taper la main – oh Lo o laé lai lala Clap, clap. Taper taper la main – oh lo laé Verse 2 After the Dutch left the island The French settled and brought Africans The British came and won the victory, Let the French be but banned slavery And so came Indians To cultivate the lands Hindus, Muslims grew in big numbers The Chinese came to trade They set up shop and stayed So we became children of all colours Chorus2 Bonzour ki manier? it’s how we greet each other We are Zanfan Tou Kouler We live in peace together We all eat farata On the beach there, amba laba When annoyed, we say “ayo mama” There you go, Ala lila Clap, clap. Taper taper lame – oh Lo o laé lai lala Clap, clap. Taper taper lame – oh lo laé Clap, clap. Taper taper lame – oh Lo o laé lai lala Clap, clap. Taper taper lame – oh lo laé Move move bouzer bouzer bouzer – oh lo o lae lai la la Move move bouzer bouzer bouzer – oh lo lae Turn turn tourner tourner tourner – oh lo o lae lai lala Turn turn tourner tourner tourner – oh lo lae Bridge1 (sung by Linzy Bacbotte) Sega, music of our forefathers still flows in our veins Brings together our people from all domains . And at the sound of the ravanne , The guitar, drums and the Triang, Hearts overflow with emotions We get up and we start to dance… Bridge2 (sung by kids): Our island has no hidden treasures But it has children of all colours
