“...English, French and African words...”

“RE: Lyr Req: African songs
Mrrzy: "African" covers a whole lot of territory...”

There are a probably a thousand+ sub-Saharan African languages.

The Caribbean basics are Spanish, French, English and Dutch, in that order. The two official Creoles are drawn from them.

But Air France pilots landing in the French State of Martinique, or anywhere in Africa, conduct their business in controlled natural English… say again?

Aviation English
Seaspeak
Simplified Technical English

No matter where you are, or are from, you “make your manners” in English. It's been that way since before WWII. It was French before then. It was a mess before they took over.

The song transcription challenge is with the Yank pop choral French. It's not really Caribbean or European.
