    What is the name of this Kompa song?

    Okay, I have been searching for this kompa song for damn near forever. I asked all my haitian friends the name but because I don't know creole I just go by what it sounds like to me and they simply have no idea what I am talking about lol.
    It is basically an old tune and they used to play it on the Haitian truck every year at the Labor Day parade back in the late 90s early 00s. It is one of the most popular kompa tunes pretty much everyone knows it when they hear the beat drop. I even heard it on the radio the other day. Don't laugh at me lol but the bridge sounds like they are saying 'Pack it in all day, pack it in all day, pack it in all day' someone help me out here I am desperate to find it!

    These are songs that were always played on the Haitian trucks for Labor Day during that time period.

    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

    Thanks but it is neither of these. It sounds kinda like Sweet Micky but I'm not sure it is def a band with a lead guy singing. It sounds a bit like he is saying 'Te-ah-bo-lay, Te-ah-boh-lay' followed by a group of dudes singing or chanting some words in unison. Its such a popular song IDK why I don't know the name.

    The name of the song is "Tu as Vole" by Tabou Combo.
    fast forward to 2:26 and you'll hear it.




    I don't remember the name of the second one. I'm sure someone from the other Kreyol islands can tell you.
