So everybody just dances

French

Alors on danse

 

Alors on danse... (x3)

Qui dit études dit travail
Qui dit taf te dit les thunes
Qui dit argent dit dépenses
Qui dit crédit dit créances
Qui dit dette te dit huissier
Oui : dit assis dans la merde
Qui dit amour dit les gosses
Dit toujours et dit divorce
Qui dit proches te dit deuil
Car les problèmes ne viennent pas seuls
Qui dit crise te dit monde, dit famine, dit Tiers-Monde
Qui dit fatigue dit réveil, encore sourd de la veille
Alors on sort pour oublier tous les problèmes
Alors on danse... (x9)
Et là tu te dis que c'est fini car pire que ça ce serait la mort.
Quand tu crois enfin que tu t'en sors,
Quand y en a plus, eh ben y en a encore !
Est-ce la zik ou les problèmes,
Les problèmes ou bien la musique ?
Ca te prend les tripes, ça te prend la tête
Et puis tu pries pour que ça s'arrête
Mais c'est ton corps, c'est pas le ciel,
Alors tu te bouches plus les oreilles
Et là tu cries encore plus fort et ça persiste...
Alors on chante
Lalalalalala, Lalalalalala,
Alors on chante
Lalalalalala, Lalalalalala

Alors on chante (x2)
Et puis seulement quand c'est fini... (alors on danse)
Alors on danse (x7)
Eh ben y en a encore! (x5)

So everybody just dances... (x3)

When you say studies, you're saying work
When you say job, you're saying dough
When you say money, you're saying expenditure
When you say credit, you're saying due
When you say debts, you're saying baillif
Yes, being in deep shit
When you say love, you're saying kids
And 'forever'* and divorce
When you say family and friends, you're saying grief
Indeed problems don't come alone
When you say crisis, you're saying world, starvation and Third-World
When you say tiredness, you're saying awakening
Still deaf from the previous night
So everyone goes out to forget their trouble
So everybody just dances (x9)
And now you think that's over
For the only thing worse than that would be death
When finally you believe it works out
When there's no more [trouble] left, there are still some
Is it the music or the trouble, the trouble or the music ?
It makes your gut and your head turn
So you pray for it to stop
But that's your body not Heaven
So you press your ears even harder
And now you scream even louder and it goes on
So everybody just sings
Lalalalalala, Lalalalalala
So everybody just sings
Lalalalalala, Lalalalalala

So everybody just sings (x2)
And only when that's over... (so everybody just dances)
So everybody just dances (x7)
Well, there are still [trouble] left ! (x5)
