FRENCH POP LYRICS

FRENCH FEMALE SINGERS IN THE EIGHTIES: PART 3

Les Calamités were a short lived but very lovable girl group. They started out as a trio mixing originals with sixties covers.

This is their final single from 1987, by which time they had slimmed down to a duo. It’s a bit more polished than their early work and it gave them their biggest hit. The melody is quite similar to the song ‘Crash’ by The Primitives which made the UK top ten a year later.

VÉLOMOTEUR

Je revois notre voiture rouge
Filant à toute allure sur les routes
Moi, les cheveux dans le vent
Tu regardes au loin, droit devant

Tant de choses auraient pu se passer
Que je n'aurai pas regrettées - oh non !
Mais tu es toujours trop pressé
Et on ne s'est même pas arrêté

REFRAIN:
Je t'assure que je n'ai pas peur
Je n'ai pas non plus mal au cœur
Je n'suis même pas de méchante humeur
Mais je préfère les vélomoteurs
Qui font : pa pa pa pa pa...

Qui donc veux-tu rattraper ?
Ou à qui veux-tu échapper ?
Moi, j'ai des poussières plein les yeux
Et me voilà toute ébouriffée

Tu vas bien trop vite mon chéri
On risque d'avoir des ennuis - oh oui !
C'est sûrement ce que pensent aussi
Les deux motards qui nous poursuivent

REFRAIN

Ton automobile préférée
A eu raison de notre amour
Maintenant tu peux bien foncer
Je t'ai oublié pour toujours

Je t'assure que je n'avais pas peur
J'n'avais pas non plus mal au cœur
J'n'étais même pas de méchante humeur
Mais je préfère les vélomoteurs
Qui font : pa pa pa pa pa...
MOPED

I remember our red car
Zooming at full speed down the roads
Me, my hair in the wind
You staring ahead into the distance

So many things could have happened
That I wouldn't have regretted - oh no!
But you're always in such a hurry
And we didn't even stop

CHORUS:
I tell you I'm not afraid
My heart doesn't ache anymore
I'm not even in a bad mood
But I prefer mopeds
That go: pa pa pa pa pa...

So who do you want to catch up with?
Or who do you want to escape from?
Me, I've got specks of dust in my eyes
And here I am with ruffled hair

You're going too fast honey
We might get into trouble - oh yes!
That's surely what they think too
The two bikers who are pursuing us

CHORUS

Your favourite car
The reason for our love
Now you can zoom off for good
I've forgotten you forever

I tell you I was never afraid
My heart didn't ache anymore
I wasn't even in a bad mood
But I prefer mopeds
That go: pa pa pa pa pa...

FRENCH GRAMMAR:

Notice how the last chorus changes from talking about the present to the past.
