Renmen (Creole)

Counting stamps,
Strangers decline,
Dirty lost tribe,
Thievery orphans,

Rainy night,
Feet ached,
Two pairs of eyes,
Young female pocketteer,
Gave permission,

Gendele m’rete,
M’gade-ou,
Loloj-mwen vire,

Slept without a blanket,
Her arms protected me,
My wallet not missing,
Instead, she left a note,

Tet-ou gridap se vre,
Men lannuit genle,
Domi nan cheve-ou,

Not like the rest,
Others pretend,
We are not here,

Soley galonnen,
Nan tout plenn lakay,
Timounn-yo manje grangou,
Vant deboutonnen,
