Once again I am puzzled by the French. WTF is the theme here?




Tu ris si mal Tu ris de vivre
Des taches de vin sur ta chemise
Qui a deux boutons eclatees
Sur ton corps qui me repoussait

Tu fais l'amour en deux pousses
L'amante, le manque, et la tournee
Et pendant que tu t'articules
Moi je soupire et toi tu me

Menaces de partir
Parce que je hurle quand tu chantes tes souvenirs
Et bien cherié prends donc la porte
Car tu sais que plus rien ne m'importe

(Refrain) ====================
Mais dis-moi adieu demain
Dis-moi adieu en chemin
Va voir les autres je n'en pense rien
Je t'ai aime mais je t'assure que c'est la fin
====================

Crois-tu pouvoir enfin me dire
Que tu veux bien qu'on reste amis
Non c'est gentil ca va comme ca
Des amis j'en ai plein deja

Je n'aurais donc plus t'entendre
Rentrer la nuit quand j'attends l'aube
Qui arrive en poussant les heures
Moi je me leve et toi tu me

Menaces de partir
Parce que je hurle quand tu chantes tes souvenirs
Eh bien cheri prends donc la porte
Car tu sais que plus rien ne m'importe

I am puzzled, I don't understand French. Cant read it either.

"We don't even have a language, just this stupid accent." French subject in Mel Brooks' "History of the World Part One."
If Trump where half as smart as he thinks he is, he'd be twice as smart as he really is.

Well can you figure it out from watching the video? The refrain is translated by Google thusly.

Fr) Mais dis-moi adieu demain|Dis-moi adieu en chemin|
Va voir les autres je n'en pense rien|Je t'ai aime mais je t'assure que c'est la fin

En) But say goodbye tomorrow|Say goodbye on the way|
Go see the others I do not think anything|I love you but I assure you that this is the end

Sp) Pero decir adiós mañana | Diga adiós en el camino|
Ve a ver a los demás que no creo nada|Te quiero, pero te aseguro que este es el final

As near as I can tell her boyfriend blows her off and she turns into tattoo vengeance demon. First she blows up one woman, then she turns the other into a melon and blows her up, then she freezes the third woman, then when her boyfriend comes back begging for forgiveness she turns him into confetti.

But she sings "Je t'ai aime" which means "I love you".

All those girls you are cheating on me with, they are going to dissappear. I may like you, but you is bad news.

she finds him attractive , needs him, uses him but is repulsed by his imperfections and reminds him that although she loves him, once he finishes with her he is useless and parting is therefore dangerous for she cares only about today and tomorrow

Why is the singer wearing one of PeeWee
Herman's old suits. This isn't the first time
I've heard 'boom boom boom' as lyrics
in a French song.

I looked it up and 'la boum' means 'party'
in French. So la boum boum must mean
'party party'.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

Here is a much more interesting vocal range then Pee Wee Jr above.
I have always been a huge Bela Fleck and the flecktones fan for a long time. Seen them live over 20 times.
Got to see them at the Lyric Opera house in Baltimore with Tuvan throat singer Kongar ool Ondar.
Here is a video examining throat singing and a song with the Band and Ondar doing his throat singing thing.

On of Charles Trenet's big hits from the 1930's.
