Monday, April 15, 2013 watch from 1:00:08- 1:01:12 please can you write his speech as he said it on's only few sentences

Poor Aristide, he had all the right intentions, but none of the big shots that are pulling Haiti's strings wanted to back him up.  They had their own interests and Aristide didn't want to play along with them.

This is what he said:
"Nou mete fanm sou nou
Nou mete gason sou nou
Pou nou kapab konbat mizè a
Nou p’ap tolere ensekirite nan peyi a
Mwen vle, mwen deside pou tout Ayisyen viv anpè
Lè w nan plas piblik, fò w santi w alèz
 Fò w pa gen kè sote
Fòk zenglendo pa ka vin oze menase w
Peyi a se pou nou l ye
Peyi a se pou nou tout li ye
Ou pa ka deja nan mizè
Enpi pou kounye a, pou kriminèl konprann l’ap fè w viv avèk kè sote
Nou p’ap tolere sa."
