Tiken Jah Fakoly - Non à l'excision (English translation)

English translation

Say No To Excision

They came over, the women,
With a long knife
She was certain that she would not
Make it out alive
 
And then this morning
That had to come in
To cut off a flower
Hidden under her belly
 
Say no to excision! Say no to excision!
Don't touch them anymore, they already suffered enough!
 
A man is lying on her chest,
Her body does not even respond
She was happy to let him in,
But she can't even feel him
 
He is only there, only there
To plant his seed,
But this field he is plowing
Is quite a sad plains
 
Say no to excision! Say no to excision!
Don't touch them anymore, they already suffered enough!
 
Say no to excision! Say no to excision!
Don't touch them anymore, they already suffered enough!
 
They cut off her skin,
Maybe they will sell it
Like a piece of flesh,
Such a tiny piece
 
They cut off her skin,
Just a part of her body
They took from her island
The most precious of all treasures
Say no to excision! Say no to excision!
Don't touch them anymore, they already suffered enough!
 
Say no to excision! Say no to excision!
Don't touch them anymore, they already suffered enough!
