    First off its *Haitian*
    You forgot La Reina herself covered this and a few other Haitian songs.

    Ti sourit, ti sourit se nan pèlen ou rete
    Rat ki rat se nan pèlen ou rete
    Tèt zozo men pa ou, zozo kale men pa ou
    M ap konyen fanm nan jis solèy leve
    Bwa m kale tou wouj
    Kon piman , kon piman, Langyèt madivinèz
    Ou pa bezwen chandèl pou ou klere l

    First off, "Hatian"was a typo. And were those songs more popular than "Yellow Bird" in the english speaking world?
