Alors on danse
And so we dance
Qui dit études dit travail, qui dit taf te dit les thunes
Studies mean work, work means money
Qui dit argent dit dépenses, qui dit crédit dit créance
Money means spending, credit means debt
Qui dit dette te dit huissier, lui dit assis dans la merde
Debt means bailiff, and he means you're in deep shit
Qui dit amour dit les gosses, dit toujours et dit divorce
Love means kids, means forever and means divorce
Qui dit proches te dit deuils car les problèmes ne viennent pas seul
Relatives mean mourning because problems don't come alone
Qui dit crise te dit monde, dit famine et dit tiers-monde
Crisis means world, means famine and means third-world
Qui dit fatigue dit réveil encore sourd de la veille
Fatigue means waking up still deaf from the day before
Alors on sort pour oublier tous les problèmes
So we go out to forget all the problems
Alors on danse
And so we dance
Et tu te dis que c'est fini car pire que ça ce serait la mort
And there you tell yourself it's over, because worse than that would mean death
Quand tu crois enfin que tu t'en sors, quand y en a plus, eh ben y en a encore
When you think you're finally getting through, when there is nothing left, well there is still some more
Est-ce la zik ou les problèmes, les problèmes ou bien la musique ?
Is it the music or the problems, the problems or the music?
Ça te prend les tripes, ça te prend la tête, et puis tu pries pour que ça s'arrête
It hits you in the guts, it racks your brain, and then you pray for it to stop
Mais c'est ton corps, c'est pas le ciel, alors tu te bouches plus les oreilles
But it's your body, it's not the sky so you cover your ears more
Et tu cries encore plus fort, et ça persiste
And you shout even louder, and it continues
Alors on chante
And so we sing
Et puis seulement quand c'est fini
And only when it's over
Alors on danse
Then we dance
Eh ben y en a encore
Well there's still some more
