Track Name: Baye Ebele

Baye \\ They came
Bango kuna e \\ Them haters
Baye \\ They came
Baye ebele \\ They came in full

Nakati ya butu \\ In the middle of the night
Baye ebele \\ They came in full

(Repeat Chorus Twice)

Nini yango \\ What
Nga na sali \\ Did I do?
Nini yango \\ What
Nga na weli \\ Have I done?


Yanga na nani yango \\ Who am I against
Likambo oyo \\ In this matter?
Balingi babebisa \\ They want to distroy
Na manso nga na sali \\ All that I have accomplished


Botika ngai nasala \\ Let me be
Botika ngai na landa \\ Let me follow
Nzela na poni \\ My dreams

Y viendront ceux qui viendront \\ Let them come
Y dirions ce qui dirions \\ Let them say
Y vivriont comme Y vivriont \\ Let them leave
Pis Y l'aimeriont ce qu'il aimeriont \\ Let them love

(Young man talking)
