Napoleon sent
His army across the ocean
And threatened all the free slaves
With wine
That they would never drink
And forced them into contracts
Worth 90 million gold bars at prime

Came a man named Jean-Bertrand

Now Haiti's in arrears
Nearly 200 years
And the French are getting fat still from the deal
Also unsavoury
The sweatshop industry
That profiting Americans conceal

Came a man named Jean-Bertrand
Aristide said no longer can they bleed

Democratically inspected
Three times re-elected
He said the poor deserve their dignity
Put slum children in school
Set up health care tools
He did the math on Haiti's history

The puppet turned around
And faced the puppeteer
You owe me lost wages
Am I being clear?

Came a man, named Jean-Bertand
Aristide said no longer can they bleed
"reverse this curse" that was his plea

Now shocked and afraid
The French and USA
And even their Canadian friends
He's removed from power
It's kidnapping hour
Because he said
This extortion must end
