A boom boom bâ
A boom boom bâ
A boom boom bâ
A boom boom bâ

Kélé, filla, saba, nani, norou

A boom boom bâ
Can you hear my heart beat in this world?
A boom boom bâ
Do you know that behind all these words
A boom boom bâ
Lies a deep desire Kamélé hé?
A boom boom bâ
Mé kouman mé fora y bamê
Are my dreams to be all I can do?
Lay o lay above, lay o lay below
And he said Annie will show them a new way
Mé kouman mé fora y bamê
Kélé, filla, saba, nani, norou

A boom boom bâ
Can you hear my heart beat in this world?
A boom boom bâ
Do you know that behind all these words
A boom boom bâ
Lies a deep desire Kamélé hé?
A boom boom bâ
Mé kouman mé fora y bamê
Are my dreams to be all I can do?
Lay o lay above, lay o lay below
And he said Annie will show them a new way
Mé kouman mé fora y bamê
Kélé, filla, saba, nani, norou

A boom boom bâ
Can you hear my heart beat in this world?
A boom boom bâ
Do you know that behind all these words
A boom boom bâ
Lies a deep desire Kamélé hé?
A boom boom bâ
Mé kouman mé fora y bamê

Kélé, filla, saba, nani, norou

A boom boom bâ
Aligna donguiri ma digné
A boom boom bâ
Mé kouman mé for a y bâmê
A boom boom bâ
Aligna donguiri ma digné hé !
A boom boom bâ
Mé kouman mé for a y bâmê

Kélé, filla, saba, nani, norou
Can you hear my heart beat in this world?
Kélé, filla, saba, nani, norou
Can you hear my heart beat in this world?
Kélé, filla, saba, nani, norou
Can you hear my heart beat in this world?
Kélé, filla, saba, nani, norou …

    General CommentAccording to someone on LetsSingIt.com...

    * Boom boom: the beating of the heart... bâ: child (in Agni, an Ivory Coast dialect). Therefore, the singer's heart is beating for the children of the world.

    * Kélé, filla, saba, nani, norou: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

    * Kamélé: boy.

    * Mé kouman mé fora y bamê: Understand what I'm saying.

    * Aligna donguiri ma digné Mé kouman mé for a y bâmê: You don't need to like my song to understand what I'm saying.

    General CommentI absoulutely love this song and the only reason I found it (or even looked for it) is because of the show called Dead Like Me. I think it was a good choice for the show and I listen to it a lot. Can anyone translate the lyrics though? It would be awsome to know what the whole song says.

    General Commentyeah I found it through Dead Like me as well. It sounds beautiful, I have my own little interpretation of what it means but nothing too deep. I think we know its about love though.

    General CommentI think that the movie's ok. I wish the original actress was still playing Daisy, but it was really nice to see the characters again!
