Melon Fly Song

SANSON MOUS MELON

Mon oule fer zot konnen ki I annan en mous

I pa sa mous ki nou abitye trouve dan nou lakaz.

I en mous etranze ki pe anvair nou pei

I atak melon, kokonm e plen lezot legim ankor

Sa mous se limenm sa fame mous melon

Mon bann frer ek ser mon pe enplor zot

Ler zot al aletranze oubyen menm lezot zil dan Sesel

Fer sir ki ler zot pe retourn dan lakour

Tou fri ek legim sa landwar I reste dan sa landwar

REFREN

Si nou pa fer sa konbyen fermye lokal ki pou dekouraze

Ler zot pou nepli kapab konbat sa fleo

Nou pou bezwen depan lo legim enporte

Sa bann dega mous melon pou kout nou milyon

Sa ki pou peye se nou bann konsomater

Ler nou bann fermye pou nepli kapab prodwi legim

Nou pou napa swa pou enport legim a en pri ekzorbitan

Nou koz Sesel I en paradi nou bezwen pran ka ek li

Pou nou prop byennet e osi byennet nou fanmir

Pa rantre Sesel ek okenn legim sorti a letranze

Sa I kapab enfeste par mous melon oubyen lezot mous fri

A tou pri nou pou fer sir ki sa pa arrive

Nou pa anvi ki nou paradi I vin en lanfer

Pou tou ou kestyon telefonn 322411

Ansanm nou a travay pou konbat sa fleo

Sa I en lager ki nou bezwen lager antoure

Kot a kot nou konnen nou pou reisir

Melon Fly Song

I want to let you know about one litlle fly

Which is not our house fly but a foreign fly

Which attacks our vegetables

Cucumbers, melons and gourds….

It is the Melon fly

Which has invaded our country

To you my brothers I beg

That when you go abroad or visit another of our islands,

Praslin, La Digue,

And when you are coming back,

Please remember to leave all the vegetables behind

If you don’t, millions of farmers won’t be able to grow vegetables any more

And they will be left without their work

And all the vegetables you eat

Will have to come from abroad

Millions and millions will be lost

But the damage the fly will do

Will be pay by you,

The consumer

No more vegetables grown in Seychelles

And only expensive ones from abroad

Seychelles is a paradise

We need to take care of it

For the good of your family and for you own well being

Do not bring vegetables which can infest us with flies

Melon fly and other fruit flies

We cannot let them in

We have to take care of this little corner of paradise

If you have questions call 322411

We are fighting the melon fly

And we want you by our side
