Henry Garat - La biguine (English translation)

Proofreading requested

La biguine

Refrain :
Et la biguine,
Il n'est rien de plus coquin.
Souple et féline,
Ça se danse avec les reins.
Y a plus de copine,
On ne connaît plus de copains,
Et la biguine
Tout le monde en a le béguin.
A chaque saison
Il faut quelques pas nouveaux,
Mais tous ces pas ne durent pas.
Regardez le Black bottom,
Il est dans les pommes
Le Shimmy aussi est fini.
Le tango c'est rhum coco
Pour les gigolos.
Ils en ont assez d'réclamer
Une danse très gentille
Qui vient des Antilles.
A tout remplacé
Tout le monde en a le béguin !

English translation

The beguine

And the beguine,
there's nothing naughtier.
Lithe and feline,
it's danced it with one's loins.
There's no girlfriend any more,
one doesn't know any more friends,
and the beguine
everybody loves it.
At any time
some new dance steps are needed,
but it's not all of these steps that last.
Look at the Black bottom,
it's faded away
and the Shimmy is gone too.
The tango, that's coconut rum
for gigolos,
they've got enough of it to complain about.
A very comely dance
that comes from the Antilles
has taken their place.
Everyone loves it.
