lyric sheets: French Pop
Friday 09 January 1998
We have as you say
Le Rock and Le Roll
La Disco, Le Punk
And a soupcon of Soul
A music called Cajun
We sing in Creole
And some seminal rap
Done by General de Gaulle
Our rockers are crudite
Cultured and chic
And swan round Le Louvre
In an elegant clique
Unlike your boys
Who watch telly all week
Then only get up
For a drink or a leak
There's more to our music
Than Sacha Distel
And the Notre Dame bell
Think of Serge Gainsbourg
And his mademoiselle
Who mostly had sex
But recorded it well
And one other name
To chuck in the ragout
Is Jean Michel Jarre
Who's permissible too
You Roshif are one paddle
Short a canoe
If you think accordions
Are what we still do
