FRENCH POP LYRICS

Gillian Hills is perhaps best known in the UK as the star of ‘Beat Girl’ (1960). However, she also had a successful career as a singer in France in the first half of the sixties. She released her first EP in 1960 aged just 16, and arguably she created a template for subsequent yé-yé girls to follow. Sylvie Vartan got her first break as a stand in for her in 1961.

Gainsbourg wrote this duet with Hills for a TV special in 1963. Although Gainsbourg songs had already been recorded by female singers, notably Juliette Gréco, this was the first time he he wrote a song specifically for a woman. Soon after he started the collaboration with France Gall which was his commercial breakthrough.

UNE PETITE TASSE D'ANXIÉTÉ

Monsieur, s´il vous plaît,
J´vais être en retard au lycée!

Faites comme les copains
Prenez le métropolitain!

Monsieur, je vous en prie!
Je n´arrive pas à avoir un taxi

Bon, montez,
Prenons le chemin des écoliers,
Vous prendrez bien
Une petite tasse d´anxiété
Avant de vous rendre au lycée

Où m´emmenez-vous?
Etes-vous donc devenu fou?

Un p´tit tour au bois
Si vous n´avez pas peur de moi

Mais vous vous trompez
Je n´ suis pas celle que vous croyez

C´est ce qu´on verra
Si cela n´ vous dérange pas!
Vous prendrez bien
Une petite tasse d´anxiété
Avant de vous rendre au lycée

Merci! Je ferai
Le reste du chemin à pied

Tout à fait d´accord,
Ça vous fera un peu de sport

J´ai trois heures de cours
Après quoi, je suis de retour

Alors comme ça
Vous pensez que je vous attendrai là?

Vous prendrez bien
Une petite tasse d´anxiété
Avant que je ne vous rende vos clés!
A LITTLE CUP OF ANXIETY

Sir, please
I'll be late for high school!

Do what your friends do
Take the metro!

Sir, I'm begging you!
I can't find a taxi

OK, get in
Let's take the scenic route,
You'd surely like to have
A little cup of anxiety
Before you go to high school

Where are you taking me?
Have you gone crazy?

A little tour to the woods
If you aren't afraid of me

But you're mistaken
I'm not the girl you think I am

We'll find that out
If it doesn't bother you!
You'd surely like to have
A little cup of anxiety
Before you go to high school

Thank you! I will make
the rest of my way on foot

That's all right,
It will be good excercise for you

I have 3 hours of class
Then I'm back

So then
Do you think I'll wait for you?

You'd surely like to have
a little cup of anxiety
Before I give you back your keys!
