Fanm Lyrics:
(English)

Stronger
Higher

Women who raise their children
(We want to hear you tonight)
Women who fight
Who work for theirs
(We celebrate you tonight)
Married women
Single women
Fast women
Powerful women
Women who get up even when they’ve been beaten down
(We celebrate our strength)

Are we ready to take it higher
Are we ready to change the game
Are we ready to take it higher
Hit them hard with what we’ve got

Short women
Tall women
(We want to see you in the front)
Women of the night
Women with a cold head
(Take your place, don't be afraid, go get it)
Women of the sun
Women hot like fire
Women who make it rain
Women who struggle
Women who fight to change the world
Raise your hands and scream

Are we ready to fly high
(Yes, we are ready)
Stick together to be stronger
(Yes, we are ready)
To try another way
(Yes, we are ready)
To go farther
(To go higher)

Leave all our fears behind
(Yes, we are ready)
Use what we have in our hearts
(Yes, we are ready)
Are we ready to go forward
(Yes, we are ready)
Together we can go along way
(And go higher)

Are we ready to cultivate love
(Yes, we are ready)
Feed the spirits of our children with it
(Yes, we are ready)
Break all the chains seeking to strangle us
(Yes, we are ready)
And finally be free
(To go higher)


(Creole)

(Nou vlé tan zot o swè la)

(Sé fet a zot o swè la)

Pou nou pé chanjé game la
Es nou paré pou nou pé chiré vibe la
Met sa wo a si yo

Pran plas a zot pa pè bay adan)

Fanm ki ni fey
Fanm ki razè
Fanm ka lité
Pou mond la chanjé
(Lévé lanmen é kryé)
Es nou paré pou nou pé chiré vibe la
Pou nou pé chanjé game la
Es nou paré pou nou pé chiré vibe la
Met sa wo a si yo

Es nou paré volé wo

Kimbé nou pou nou pli fo

Pou nou pé alé pli lwen

Es nou paré kiltivé lanmou

Brisé tout chen ka tranglé
(Oui nou paré)
Pou nou pé libéré
(Pou alé pli wo)
