Welele

Talking Intro:

I annan zonm enkyet, mmm hmm
(Some men are jealous, mmm hmm)
Ler son doudou inn abiye, met sa talon soulye
(When his darling dresses up, puts on her high heels to go out)
Larg sa seve azoute hehehehe
(Lets down her hair….extensions hehehehe)
Zwer I zalou mon dir ou, serye en
(He gets jealous I tell you, it’s serious hey)
Eh bewi, taler a perdi baby
(Oh yes, he’s afraid of losing his darling)
Taler baby a ganny vole
(Losing his darling to another man)
Pa kapab kit en lepa sa
(He wouldn’t leave her one step)
Cool down baby, I’m your lady!
