Formidable, formidable
Tu étais formidable, j'étais fort minable,
Nous étions formidables,
Formidable,
Tu étais formidable,

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

Hey, baby, oops : Miss,
I won't pick you up, I promise, I swear,
I'm single and since yesterday, fuck,
I can't have children, but hey, it's not... uh,
Come back !
Five minutes legit, I wasn't insulting you, I'm polite, courteous
And a little bit quite drunk and for men like me
You have something else to do, had you seen me yesterday
When I was...

Awesome, awesome

Hey, Have you seen youself, D'you think you're pretty
Because you're married ? !
But it's only a ring, man, don't get too excited
She's gonna dump you as they always do,
And the other girl, have you told her about it ?
I can tell her is you want to, so it's settled,
And to the kid too, if you have one,
Wait for three years, seven years and there you will see
If it's...

Hey, girl, oh, sorry: boy,
You know, there is neither bad nor good guys in life,
If mommy is damn annoying, it's because she's afraid of becoming a granny,
If daddy cheats on mommy, it's because mommy's getting old, that's why.
Why are you all red ? Beh, come back, kiddo,
And what is it with you all
Looking at me like I'm a monkey, you ?
Oh, right, you are all saints, you,
You bunch of monkeys !
Gimme a baby monkey, He'll be...

Awesome, awesome

Fort Minable : litt> quite pathetic - but I wanted to find something alike awesome to be close to the pun Formidable/Fort-minable
If you have a better idea, don't hesitate to correct.

* I think you meant "make" not "male", but the right verb to be used might be "have" [children].
* "insult you"
* you could have seen, but before "if" you should use "[if] you had seen" or simply "had you seen" (without "if")
* I'd change "wed" with "married"
* question: "mamie" means "grandmother"? I took it for "mother" (so this is a suggestion to myself)

Anyway, wait for a native speaker of English to give you more appropriate suggestions.

Does Stromae have any songs in other languages (Dutch, English) than French? I'm just curious.

Thank you very much. It's edited. Smile And indeed, mamie means grandmother. As for Stromae, I have no idea, sorry.
