"Canned Candies" as written by Timothy John Gane and Laetitia Sadier....
J'ai perdu mon chien
Reviens

La La La

J'ai perdu mon chien
Reviens

Il me refait le coup
Cours par monts et par vaux
Là où souffle le vent
Distrait par l'appétit
Il oublie son propos
Il oublie, il oublie
Mais cette fois je le vois
Il ramène quelque chose

    I've lost my dog
    come back

    La La La

    I've lost my dog
    come back

    he's gone and done it again
    running off who knows where
    off where the wind blows
    guided by his appetite
    he's forgotten what his purpose is
    he's forgotten, he's forgotten
    but this time I can see him
    he's bringing something back

    General CommentI totally love this song! It captures what I like the most about Stereolab. When you read the lyrics in English, it just kind of falls flat, and sounds dull and boring. But when you hear the words sung in French, its sounds incredible. It really opens up the song and makes me think more about the point of what she is saying. Obviously there is more to it than just her dog: "guided by his appetite / he's forgotten what his purpose is" but then, she just ends it on a suggestion of "but this time I can see him /he's bringing something back". And that's it. Nothing else. We don't know what that something is. So then your imagination has to fill in the gaps.
