Prolog

Nek plonz to nam dan fon lamer
Si to’le konn zistwar enn fler
Ki finn ouver so bann petal
Dan enn gran tourbiyon rafal.
Si to’le konn zistwar mo fler
Tranp to lespri dan lamer kler.

Lontan-lontan enn gramaten
Dan koumansman so gran desten
Douler-douser dan vant later
Ti donn nesans enn bout later.
Dan bout later enn zwazo bren
Ti vinn depoz enn ti lagren.

Lerla bann flev lor nou later
Plonz zot lespri dan fon lamer
Pou tras ansam sime Listwar
Pou ranz lespwar ar dezespwar.
Dan profonder desten amer
Tou larivier zot rev mem fler.

Dilo Lasenn, Lalwar, Nizer
– Dan profonder desten amer –
Dilo Ganga ek Zambezi
Ponnaïyarr, Godavarri,
Flev Yangtze Kiang, tou larivier
Ar zot lespwar aroz mem fler.

Tou bann dilo finn melanze,
Li bet aster sey separe!
Nou bout later finn donn enn fler,
Nou selebre so lalimier.
Olie tir lay ar lepase
Nou dir ansam ” Mersi Bondie ” .

NARATER: Bomaten, bomaten dan lesiel, laflam ble
Pe aroz lasesres, fer later transpire
Dan zarden Abraham.
Ton Joshwa Abraham, fidel ar so program
Pe kiltiv so zarden, aroz later kram-kram
Pou prezerv paradi.

KER: Walls, walls everywhere you look!
Walls, walls everywhere you go!
Walls, walls they creep up like hell!
When will the walls come tumbling down?

NARATER: Dan tourman move tan li pa dekouraze;
Mem soley kras dife lapli bizen tonbe,
Li kone, li kone.
Li aras bann bagas, li fer bann nouvo gref;
Li detrir bann vieyri, li protez seki nef
Pou transform destine.

KER: Walls, walls everywhere you look!

Li kone, li kone.
Maler amenn boner, ena far dan brouyar;
So lafwa dan lavi permet li gard lespwar
Bann miray pou grene.

KER: Walls, walls everywhere you look!

Old walls, new walls

Creeping up in hell’s haven.

Vie fler finn fini so letan;
Nouvo bizen chombo letan,
Gard tan ar sanzman dan letan,
Anpes miray blok nou lelan.

*******

MARK: There was once Kamla Devi,
A bright light from the East.
She so wanted to marry me
But I was such a beast.

To her I preferred my own kind,
Too terrible to say!
I was a fool and I declined
A road so fair and gay.

Kamla Devi came back to me,
Shakti took up her shape.
Was it a flash from memory?
Why do I stand agape?

I thought through her I would retrieve
Emotions from my brain.
She taught me to live, give and receive,
Set my soul free from pain.
I live again! I live again!

Now I am sure my memory
Played me no dirty trick.
I’m not after Kamla Devi …
Monsieur Samsonn, you make me sick!

Shakti my dove, it’s you I love,
It’s you I love, I really do.
It’s not fancy, thanks God above.
Oh, I feel free now I have you.

I thought through her I would retrieve
Emotions from my brain.
She taught me to live, give and receive,
Set my soul free from pain.
I live again! I live again!

*******

NARATER: Mark Samsonn aster finn bien konpran
So lamour pou Shakti li bien fran.

Bann miray pou grene, sa zour la bien-bien pre.

NARATER: Dan lavarang Joshwa kat dimoun bien senser
Pe ekout zot lespwar fer eko dan leker.
Labriz koumans soufle, bann brans bouz-bouz latet:
Dimoun ek lanatir ansam pe rev mem fet.

Laba dan bor sime enn loto arete;
Enn misie kostime, timid me distenge
Pe gagn difikilte ar laport lantouraz …
… …Ou pa pou kwar zoto!
… Mark Samsonn dan paraz.

KER: Pa bizen explike, Shakti finn konpran tou;
Li galoupe sorti, al sot lor so likou.
Zot finn rekonsilie, lamour finn triyonfe …
Enn zour napa enn zour bann miray zot grene.

NARATER: Bon bann zanfan! Aster mo bizen dir bay-bay,
Salam, namaste. Mwa mo’ena lezot travay.
Me avan mo ale nou sant enn ti sante
Ki Ton Joshwa enn zour ti’ekrir pou so gate.

JOSHWA: Tou bann dilo finn melanze,
Li bet aster sey separe!
Nou bout later finn donn enn fler,
Nou selebre so lalimier.
Olie tir lay ar lepase
Nou dir ansam ” Mersi Bondie “.

KER: Olie tir lay ar lepase
Nou dir ansam ” Mersi Bondie “.
