Subject: Lyr Add: ANGÉLIQUE, O
Haitian Creole; meringue.

Angélique, oh, Angélique, oh,
Allé caille manman ou !
(repeat two lines)

Ti fi qui pas conné lavé passé
Allé caille manmam ou.

Alle caille manman mon ch&$233;
(repeat line three times)
Pou' pas bam'm déagrément.

Angélique, oh, Angélique, oh,
Go back to your mother !

Little girl who doesn't know how to wash and iron,
Go home to your mother.
Go back to your mother, my dear,

Creole sung by Lolita Cuevas, Haitian Folk Songs, Folkways FW6811, from booklet.

Perhaps this is just a simplification from the original song. I cannot find any lyrics to this song by Auguste de Pradines.

(Auguste de Pradines is a grandfather of the new president of Haiti, Martelly.)
