Jean Leloup - Le monde est à pleurer (English translation)

English translation

The world is to cry for

Ladies and gentlemen
After one year, after two years
Jean The Wolf
 
Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
 
Today assembled
God the Father and Buddha and Krishna and Allah
In the same gynaeceum
All have alot in their hearts
That's the reason for the meeting
That's the reason for the meeting
 
In fact, on this day
Two thousand years after Christ
Force them to admit their faliure
Humans are mean and Earth is cruel
And Earth is cruel
 
"I wish to take the spittoon now" said Buddha the fat slob
In a start without glory
For my part, it is neither the wars if not the famines that bother me
 
No, it would rather the failed conception which is the basis of human
Natural selection
For example: the martyr
The worst we could endure is not after all the chronical ugliness
The chronical ugliness
 
When I think about that girl that I saw in Macao
So repugnant and without talent
Every time she loved her loved one would tightent himself
In her like a stomach ulcer that gnawed the insides
Her loved one would tighten himself
In her like a stomach ulcer that gnawed the insides
The insides
 
Let's go, Hop!
A little sincerity!
The world is to cry for
 
"It's nothing" said Allah, always contradictory
I know obese people unable to see
A refrigerator without quivering of anxiety
Without quivering of anxiety
 
Shameful and defeatist
They linger at night in dining rooms night and day and hug the walls
Enemy of mirrors
Enemy of mirrors
 
"Your perception is cursory" answered God the Father
Do you know about the existence of these suburb families
Who spend their youth earning a salary
Barely sufficient to pay this horrible house
 
And this atrocious lawn and after twenty years of crazy labour
The children leave and never love them any longer
And never love them any longer
 
Let's go, Hop!
A little sincerity!
The world is to cry for
 
But I see worse than to chant Manitu
Always late and exhausted to death
I see the trail of failed artists
That search the tube all day long
And rack their brains for this poor girl
Who sung ballads
Ah this poor girl not too pretty
Who sung balads
 
Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
 
The meeting is going well
It unfolds, everything is going well
The Gods cry all their drunkness over juvenile acne
Unstuck ears
Lafontaine park*
Retirement at 60
Decieving love
Public washrooms** and raging toothaches
Public washrooms and raging toothaches
 
Finally God and Buddha and Krishna and Allah
Tired of the effort fall tranquil and pessimist
And look at their toes and look at their feet
And look at their feet
 
But God the Father always so merry gets back up
"I have here, gentlemen, in my bag, a little cordial which you will let me know what you think"
And here he goes distributing the glasses
 
Buddha lights up he has some too
The sake flows
Manitu has some pot
And Shiva, some hashish
Allah retires
 
And we live in the sky
God the Father, Manitu and Krishna
Arm under arm
Piss drunk and joyfull
Sing out loud
Over the clouds
 
Let's go, Hop!
A little sincerity!
The world is to cry for

*A park in Montreal
**Also known as W.C., public restroom/bathroom.

And for those who are curious, Buddha is the Buddhist "god", God the Father is God from Christianity, Allah is the God of Islam, Krishna is a Hindu God and the God of Hare Krishna, Shiva is a Hindu God whereas Manitu is a Native American divinity having many roles depending on the tribe.
