Comentários do autor:

"On" can mean "we" or "they" or "whoever it is in the situation." I'm not 100% sure which is the best choice here, and I went with "we."

I don't know the words "mé-cra" and "T'façon."

The entire rap section is full of slang and not in real sentences, so it's hard to interpret.

Des pères, des hommes et des frères

J'ai entendu dire
Que les terres se passeraient bien de nous
J'ai entendu dire
Que de la guerre il ne serait rien sans nous
Oui quand on a manqué d'amour on manque de mot
Mais quand arrive le jour ou une femme nous souffle ses peurs
On fait tourner le monde
On fait tourner le monde on fait bouger le monde
