Reflection on Charles Mingus’ “Haitian Fight Song”

Not down and not out

Mingus bass thumping heartbeat

Never underdog

 

Liberation soup

Spicy sax and a fight on

Your hands Mingus style

 

Tried to keep you poor

I’ll be a Haitian with you

Your fight is my fight

 

Bum bump a doo dah

Bum bump a doo dah

Bum bump a DOO dah

DOO dah DOO dah
