Pink Martini - Sympathique (Je ne veux pas travailler) (English translation)
My room is a form of a cage,
The sun streams through the window,
the bellhops are at my door like those little soldiers
who want to take me away.
*I don't want to work,
I don't want to lunch
I only want to forget
and so I smoke.
Long ago I knew the smell of love,
a million roses didn't smell as sweet.
Now a single flower in my way
makes me sick.
**I am not proud if this life
that wants to kill me.
It's magnificent to be nice
but I have never known this.
