Padam Padam (Padam padam)

English translation

Padam Padam

Versions: #1#2
This tune which haunts me day and night
This tune wasn't written today
It comes from as far away as I come
Trawled around by a hundred thousand musicains
One day this tune will drive me mad
A hundred times I've wanted to say why
But it's interrupted me
It always speaks before i do
And its voice drowns out my voice
It comes running up behind me
It plays me the trick of: do you remember
C'est un air qui me montre du doigt
Et je traîne après moi comme un drole d'erreur
Cet air qui sait tout par cœur
It says: "Remember your loves
Remember cos it's your turn
There's no reason why you shouldn't cry
Encumbered with your memories
"And me, I see again those who remain
My 20 years make the drum beat
I see the succession of gestures flash by
All the comedy of love
To this tune which just keeps playing
Des "je t'aime" de quatorze-juillet
The 'always's which we buy on the cheap
Des "veux-tu" en voilà par paquets
Et tout ca pour tomber juste au coin d'la rue
Sur l'air qui m'a reconnue
Listen to the commotion which it causes me
Comme si tout mon passé défilait
You need to keep some sorrow for later
I've got scores full in this tune which beats.
Which beats like a wooden heart

Padam padam

Cet air qui m’obsède jour et nuit,
Cet air n’est pas né d’aujourd'hui.
Il vient d’aussi loin que je viens
Traîné par cent mille musiciens.
Un jour cet air me rendra folle,
Cent fois j’ai voulu dire pourquoi.
Mais il m’a coupé la parole,
Il parle toujours avant moi
