There is a system band song named dom laj. In the chorus, they are saying “dom laj, dom laj, pli laj passé yon layé” . I don’t know if I spell light right but I just want to know what does it mean and especially what does layé means in this context?

A laye is a round, flat sifter basket (does not usually have a handle).

Manno Charlemagne also sings a song; Do m laj pase yon laye tou.

It's an expression which means I can handle whatever you throw at me. I can carry a big load, I'm not afraid to carry a burden. Compris?
