"But not to fear, Phil (the very large, hairy guy from Bono) had us singing in the tap-tap on the way to the site.
He and his two friends ran a car-wash at their school to raise money for their trip—which included a marathon singing of “Hey Baby, won’t you be my girl.”
So, at the top of his lungs, Phil belts this out (and also note that he knows all of the lyrics, including the “hoo” “hah” intervals) and of course we all join in.
Soon, all the Haitians we pass on the street are singing and clapping—and for once, they are all smiles when looking at us.
The ultimate moment though, was when we pulled up behind the Canadian military guys riding in their covered tank—and they start singing along too."
