The Tristitude

The tristitude,
It's when you just swallow a toothpick,
When you realize your father is a Swiss-German,
When a friend calls you for his move,
And it hurts.
 
The tristitude,
It's to pass the tunnel of Fourvière on 15th august,
When you have to go to live in Nogent-le-Rotrou,
When your hairdresser tells you that you have red reflections,
And it hurts.
 
The tristitude,
It's me, it's you,
It's us, what is it ?
It's a little bit of distress in the crook of our arms.
 
The tristitude,
It's humm, it's wouuh !
It's them, it's you,
It's life which tells you that nothing is fine.
 
The tristitude,
It's when you're chosen to be the goalkeeper in Hand-ball,
When you're in the Mercedes of the Princess of Wales
When on saturday evening it's your daughter who plays in porn,
And it pisses.
 
The tristitude,
It's when you walk barefoot on a very little lego,
It's when you drink water during a travel in India,
When your neighbor tells you he's gonna learn saxophone,
And it hurts, hurts, hurts
 
The tristitude,
It's me, it's you,
It's us, what is it ?
It's a little bit of distress in the crook of our arms.
 
The tristitude,
It's humm, it's wouuh !
It's them, it's you,
It's life which tells you that nothing is fine.
 
The tristitude,
It's when your siamese brother tells you he has got AIDS,
When your wife does partner swapping a little bit without you,
When young people call you Mister for the first time,
And it hurts.
 
The tristitude,
It's becoming a stylist but for Eddy Mitchell
It's to conjugate "to boil" in plural subjunctive,
It's to make purchases the saturday before Christmas,
And it hurts, hurts, hurts
 
The tristitude,
It's me, it's you,
It's us, what is it ?
It's a little bit of distress in the crook of our arms.
 
The tristitude,
It's humm, it's wouuh !
It's them, it's you,
It's life which tells you that nothing is fine.
 
No no no,
The tristitude,
The tristitude,
The tristide attitude,
The tristitude ouah ouah
The tristitititude,
 
The tristitude,
It's a little bit of sadness and loneliness,
It's like tristitude plus... nothing,
Anyway this is,
The tri the tri tristitude,
The tristitude,
Gives you the sad attitude,
The tristitude

Maybe you should invent an english word for "tristitude", something like "lonesadness"??

Yes, I thought about it but finally I felt it would decrease the song's meaning, because Tristitude is the most important word in it~
I don't know ^^
