Translation of Haitian Creole text:

Wake up, wake up, the day has come… today is Carnaval!

Let us gather and celebrate…

Shake that shaker, dance that Rara…

Wake up, wake up, the day has come… today is Carnaval!


The young ones are disguised, the grown ups are excited,

Madigra* and Chaloska* are parading,

What a beautiful season,

People on top and people below are united…

It’s Carnaval! Carnaval time is here!


Move forward… no hiting! No pushing!

Jump up and down as you want,

Lossen up, dance however you want… it’s Carnaval!…
