Eh, l’bébé, oups : mademoiselle,
Je vais pas vous draguer, promis, juré,
J’suis célibataire et depuis hier – putain,
J’peux pas faire d’enfants, mais bon, c’est pas… eh, reviens !
5 minutes quoi, j’t’ai pas insulté, j’suis poli, courtois,
Et un peu fort bourré et pour les mecs comme moi
Vous avez autre chose à faire, vous m’pourriez vu hier
Où j’étais

Eh tu t’es regardé, tu t’crois beau
Parce que tu t’es marié ?!
Mais c’est qu’un anneau, mec, t’emballes pas,
Elle va t’larguer comme elles font chaque fois,
Et puis l’autre fille, tu lui en a parlé ?
Si tu veux je lui dis, comme ça c’est réglé,
Et au p’tit aussi, enfin si vous en avez,
Attends 3 ans, 7 ans et là vous verrez
Si c’est

Et, petite, oh, pardon : petit,
Tu sais dans la vie y’a ni méchant ni gentil,
Si maman est chiante, c’est qu’elle a peur d’être mamie,
Si papa trompe maman, c’est parce que maman vieillit, tiens !
Pourquoi t’es tout rouge? Beh, reviens, gamin,
Et qu’est-ce que vous avez tous
A me regarder comme un singe, vous ?
Ah, oui, vous êtes saints, vous,
Bande de macaques !
Donnez moi un bébé singe, il sera

Terrific

Hey, baby, oops : young lady,
I swear I won’t hit on you,
I am single and since yesterday, damn it,
I cannot have children, but anyway that’s not… Hey, come back here!
Just a few minutes, come on, I did not insult you, I have my manners,
and I’m quite a bit plastered and for guys like me
you have other things to do, you could have seen me yesterday2,
when I was

Terrific, terrific

Hey, take a look at yourself, think you’re Mr Handsome
just because you got married?!
This is but a ring, man, don’t get carried away,
she’ll dump you like they always do,
now about the other girl, did you tell her?
I can tell her if you want, that will settle the matter,
and I’ll tell the kid too, if you have children,
you just wait for 3 or 7 years, and then you’ll see
how it’s

terrific, terrific
You were terrific, I was terrible,

Eh girl, oh, sorry: boy,
you know, in life there are no good and bad guys,
if Mom is a pain, that’s because she’s afraid to be a granny,
if Dad cheats on Mom, that’s because Mom is getting old, what else?
Why the blush? Come on, come back, boy,
and what’s wrong with you all
staring at me like I was a monkey, eh?
Sure, you’re such a bunch of saints,
you bunch of apes!
Give me a baby monkey, he will be

terrific, terrific

  • 1. an attempt to render the pun on “formidable” (amazing) and “fort minable” (quite hopeless)
  • 2. in French from France that would be something like “vous pourriez m’avoir vu hier”. Maybe that’s a Belgian way of saying or maybe the way a drunk could speak
