Je chante- lyrics and discussion

Recommended Posts

 

I translated the lyrics into English because it's a witty text, it sounds happy but the story is kind of sad...like most Mika's songs...moustaches used to be a coded name for the police many years ago , before I was born for those who wondered ...

 

Lyrics in English

 
 
I sing!
Oh, I sing in the morning and in the evening,
I sing on my way
I sing , I go from farms to castles  
I sing for bread, I sing for water 
I sleep
At night on the grass in the woods 
Flies
Do not bite me
I'm happy , I have it all and I have nothing 
And I sing on my way 
 
 
The elves
Divinities of the night ,
The elves
Sleep in my bed.
The moon is sneaking as silent as a wolf
Into the woods , to dance, to dance with us.
I ring
the countess doorbell today :
Nobody,
She's gone,
She only left a dish of rice for me 
Says a chinese  lackey to me 
 
Oh I sing
But hunger which is chasing me 
Is tormenting 
My appetite .
Suddenly I fall into a hole on the pathway,
I fall and faint and I'm half dying
 
Hey , policemen,
Who are walking on this pathway 
Yeah policemen, catch my hand.
Have pity, I'm hungry, I want to eat,
I'm totally light... light..."
 
To the police station,
Other policemen told me,
To the police station,
my friend,
Is that you the singer, the tramp?
We'll lock you up ... yes, your number's up."
 
Oh, rope,
You saved me from life ,
Rope,
Be blessed
Because, thanks to you I surrended my spirit ,
I hung myself on that night... and since then...
 
I sing !
I sing in the evening and in the morning,
I sing
On my way,
I'm haunting farms and castles ,
A singing ghost, people find me funny
And I sleep ,
At night on the grass in the woods 
Flies 
Do not bite me
I'm happy, I'm ok, I'm not hungry anymore,
And I sing 
On my way

:thumb_yello: Thanks a lot Anne - for this translation!! :hug: It's great to understand the meaning of the song, it's actually quite deep, and yes sad :( I understand why MIKA has chosen to record it, as usual he wants to tell something by his songs - not only give us a good melody ... :fisch: 

 

Love, love
