FRENCH POP LYRICS SUMMER SPECIAL

HOW TO BE A YÉ-YÉ GIRL: #3 – Have a Rock Star Boyfriend

This track from 1966 is full of wonderfully absurd word play, that surprisingly enough translates quite well into English (except for the final verse). Dutronc qualifies for this yé-yé series because the video features his girlfriend of the time, Françoise Hardy, modelling a mini-skirt. The other big couple in French sixties pop was Sylvie Vartan and Johnny Hallyday.

MINI, MINI, MINI

Petit, petit, petit
Tout est mini dans notre vie
Mini-Moke et mini-jupe
Mini-moche et lilliput
Il est mini Docteur Schweitzer
Mini mini ça manque d'air
Mini-jupe et mini-moque
Miniature de quoi j'me moque
Ministère et terminus
Minimum et minibus

Petit, petit, petit
Tout est mini dans notre vie
Mini-Moke et mini-jupe
Mini-moche et lilliput
Il est mini Docteur Schweitzer
Mini mini ça manque d'air
Mini, mini, mini
Mini, mini, mini, mini

Moi je préfère les maxis
Maxi-moke et maxi-jupe
Maxi-moche et maxi-pute
Il est maxi Docteur Schweitzer
Maxi maxi ça respire l'air
Maxitère et termaxus
Maximum et maxibus
Maxistère et termaxus
Maximum et maxibus
Maxistère et termaxus
MINI, MINI, MINI

Little, little, little
Everything is mini in our life
Mini-Moke* and mini-skirt
Mini-ugly and lilliput
It's a mini Doctor Schweitzer**
Mini mini that lack of air
Mini-skirt and mini-mock
Miniature that makes me laugh
Ministry and terminus
Minimum and minibus

Little, little, little
Everything is mini in our life
Mini-Moke and mini-skirt
Mini-ugly and lilliput
It's a mini Doctor Schweitzer
Mini mini that lack of air
Mini, mini, mini
Mini, mini, mini, mini

Me, I prefer the maxis
Maxi-Moke and maxi-skirt
Maxi-ugly and maxi-bitch
It's a maxi Doctor Schweitzer
Maxi maxi that breath of air
Maxi-stry and ter-maxi-nus
Maximum and maxi-bus
Master and ter-maxi-nus
Maximum and maxi-bus
Master and ter-maxi-nus
