She Tells Me

Versions : #1#2#3#4
She tells me
"Write a happy song
Not a depressing song
A song everybody loves"
 
She tells me
"You'll become a billionaire
You'll have the right to be proud
Don't end up like your father"
 
She tells me
"Don't lock yourself up in your bedroom
Come on, shake yourself and dance
Tell me, what's your problem ?"
 
She tells me
"What's wrong with you, you look so square
Are you high/stoned or are you gay ?
You'll end up like your brother"
 
She tells me
 
She tells me "It's your life,
Do what you want, nevermind
One day you'll understand
One day you'll regret it"
 
She tells me "You're hopeless
Pop out of your little bubble
You're messing around
Looks like you enjoy it"
 
Why waste your life away ? (x3)
Dance, dance, dance
Why waste your life away ? (x3)
Dance, dance, dance
 
She tells me
"Act like the others boys
Go and play football
You'll become popular"
 
She tells me
"What the hell are you doin' on the internet ?
Are you not right in the head ?
Look at how much time you waste"
 
She tells me
"Why are you always complaining ?
You act like you're 8
It's not how you're going to please me"
 
She tells me
"One day I won't be there anymore"
But that when she tells me this
That she tells me something I like
 
She tells me "It's your life,
Do what you want, nevermind
One day you'll understand
One day you'll regret it"
 
She tells me "You're hopeless
Pop out of your little bubble
You're messing around
Looks like you enjoy it"
 
Why waste your life away ? (x3)
She tells me "dance!"
Dance, dance, dance
Why waste your life away ? (x3)
She tells me "dance"
Dance, dance, dance
 
She tells me
"You don't have white hair yet
But soon you'll be 30
You better wake up"
 
She tells me
"You're still a child
You'll never be a grown-up
And I'm already old"
 
She tells me
"Take a look at your friends
What are they going to do with their life ?
It's worth topping oneself"
 
She tells me
"Yes one day you'll kill me"
But that's when she tells me this
That she tells me something I like...
 
She tells me "It's your life,
Do what you want, nevermind
One day you'll understand
One day you'll regret it"
 
She tells me "You're hopeless
Pop out of your little bubble
You're messing around
Looks like you enjoy it"
 
Why waste your life away ? (x3)
She tells me "dance!"
Dance, dance, dance
Why waste your life away ? (x3)
She tells me "dance"
Dance, dance, dance

The only way I could translate "se foutre en l'air", slang for "to commit suicide" was "top oneself", but I don't know if it fits.

She tells me "You're hopeless
Pop out of your little bubble
You're messing around
Looks like you enjoy it" -
This really cool 'cos instead 'leave your bubble' you've got a metaphore about bubbles going on with 'pop'. Smile

Maybe instead of "Topping Yourself" it should be "Offing Yourself"? It just sounds a bit more natural to me.
