« que du bonheur » lyrics

1. Race (« Race »)

My bedroom is like Gaza. I am all Mossad-up in my head. It’s too hard to face the world. I Internet my life away. Something is happening here. And I sure know what it is. International Obama Conspiracy. We are all doomed to chaos.

I am waiting for my night to fall to stick a good race to myself. I am waiting for my night to fall, yeah, to stick a good old one.

Corrupted politicians. You pay them taxes and suck their cocks. Who’s the master of puppets ? Mercredi jeudi vendredi samedicks. They are cheating and drinking. But history can also be erased. Something has never been happening here. And I sure know what it is.

I am waiting for my night to fall to stick a good race to myself. I am waiting for my night to fall, yeah, to stick a good old one.

2. Bass Drum (“Grosse Caisse”)

Bass Drum ! Bass Drum ! Bass Drum ! Bass Drum !

It’s a pleasant rock’n’roll club. Between Grands Boulevards and Les Halles. We played there last saturday. Ain’t it fun when you play in Bass Drum Bar ?

Bass Drum ! Bass Drum ! Bass Drum ! Bass Drum !

At the beginning of “Rock Chrétien”. They treated us like three dogs. The bouncers where not practising zen. And we told them Auf Widerzen.

Bass Drum ! Bass Drum ! Bass Drum ! Bass Drum !

I am guilty of singing. I am guilty of expressing my personnal feelings. I am guilty of being a six-stringer. I am guilty of playing you venue.

You say we are thugs in trendy style. But we are only guilty of being innoncent. We paid what we drunk. But our reputation you tried to debunk.

Bass Drum ! Bass Drum ! Bass Drum ! Bass Drum !

3. Mouse of the barking fun (“Plus que les chiens”)

I have always loved the devil dogs. I have always loved snoop doggy dog. I have always loved hound dog taylor. But I love you more than dogs.

Domestic animal ! Domestic animal ! Domestic animal ! Domestic animal !

I have always loved guitar wolf. I have always love electric eels. I have always loved jailhouse frog. But I love you more than the Wind in the Willows.

Wild beast ! Wild beast ! Wild beast ! Wild beast !

Animal my little animal ! Animal you are my animal !

I have always enjoyed a sweet t-bone steak. I have always enjoyed a tasty carré d’agneau. I have always enjoyed haggis. But I love you more than meat.

Slaughterhouse animal ! Slaughterhouse animal ! Slaughterhouse animal ! Slaughterhouse animal !

Animal my little animal ! Animal you are my animal !

I have always loved Camel. I have always loved Slash’s Snakepit. I have always loved  Zooropa. But I love you more than a zoo.

Animal in a cage ! Animal in a cage ! Animal in a cage ! Animal in a cage !

Animal my little animal ! Animal you are my animal ! Animal your little animal ! Animal I am your animal !

4. Mister Pussy Seal (“Graisse de phoque”) 

Every morning the alarm clock rings. I take a shower and I dress. I listen WFMU while sipping coffee. I walk the street up to the metro station.

I spend the whole week sitting at a desk. At night I shop at a night shop. I have a carte vitale and the congés payés. I am a citizen and I am proud.

But at the deep of my heart. What turns me on. It is seal blubber. Seal blubber !

Rubing blubber on leather shoes. Rubbing, brushing and making it shine. We are all mother’s nature seals.  And it is good for old brown shoes.

Call me mister pussy seal. That’s my name. Call me mister pussy seal. I’m not ashamed. Call me mister pussy seal. This is my hour. Call me mister pussy seal. I’ve got the power.

We all have a yellow secret octopuseal garden. A fragile heart beating under the fat of the uniform. A worker at day. At night I turn into a mammal. A worker at day. At night I turn into a mammal.

5. Feelings (“Sentiments”)

So far I thought I did this for money. But I was wrong I had feelings. No matter what you will say to me. Tonight I decided to leave.

It’s all over now. I have no more feelings. From now on you can keep your money. The time’s they are a-changing. Now I shall overcome.

You always kept me under your thumb. But tonight it’s just like Tom Thumb’s Blues. No matter what you will think of me. Tonight you will live under my law.

It’s all over now. I have no more feelings. From now on you can keep your money. The time’s they are a-changing. Now I shall overcome.

Now ! Now ! Now ! Now !

6. Socially Impaired Boy (“Handicapé”)

I am an ordinary guy. I sometimes meet friends. I shot a rabbit in the forest of Orléans. Just to watch him die.

Socially Impaired Boy ! Socially Impaired Boy ! Socially Impaired Boy !  Socially Impaired Boy !

Maybe I am not a wonder boyfriend. But you are the shoe shine of my life. I know I have disappointed you. But I just call to say I love you.

Socially Impaired Boy ! Socially Impaired Boy ! Socially Impaired Boy !  Socially Impaired Boy !

Girls will be girls will be girls will be gi-i-i-irls. They always tell me I am an asshole. I already know I am socially impaired. Why bother to say it again and again and again.

Socially Impaired Boy ! Socially Impaired Boy ! Socially Impaired Boy !  Socially Impaired Boy !

7. Mojo Working (“Destinée”)

Life is short. And so am I. I’ve decided to stop living in other’s desire.  From now on I will have a million dollar bash. I’ve decided to handle my mojo.

With my mojo it’s not always that hard. Some like it hot but it is always pleasure at hand. My mojo is sometimes a bite tricky. A mojo is not always that easy to carry.

With my mojo. It’s for real. With my mojo. That’s whenever I want.

My mojo is straight ahead. I’ll stick to it. My mojo, I know it like the inside of my hand. My mojo, I don’t know where it will lead me. It is my ding, it is my ling, it is my dying a ling.

With my mojo. It’s for real. With my mojo. That’s whenever I want.

With my mojo. It’s for real. With my mojo. I won’t spit in my eye.

8. Woman (“Femme”)

Victim of day-to-day racism. Disgraced, ostracized. You banned me from your society. Because I’m not an ordinary girl.

I have always had this little special supplementary something. Which starts you up and wanna take you higher. You put me appart, you humiliated me. Because I’m not an ordinary girl.

I am not an ordinary girl. I am a boy. I am a boy. I am not an ordinary girl. I am a boy. I am a boy.

Mujer, you’ll be un hombre soon. Mujer, you’ll be un hombre soon. Mujer, you’ll be un hombre soon. Mujer, you’ll be un hombre soon. Mujer, you’ll be un hombre soon. Mujer, you’ll be un hombre soon. Mujer, you’ll be un hombre soon.
