Bonjour, bonne nuit, au revoir, salut
Les jeux sont faits et rien ne va plus
Une cocotte au cabaret
Un général sur les Champs-Elysées
Des sans-culotte à la Bastille
Monsieur Guillotin et Madame Guillotine
Françoise Hardy, Jacques Dutronc
Joséphine et Napoléon

C'est comme ci, c'est comme ça
C'est la vie, c'est la mort
C'est comme ci, c'est comme ci, c'est comme ça
C'est la vie, c'est la mort, c'est la mort

Une baguette, du chocolat
Un café au lait, un coca-cola
Sur la Côte d'Azur, le soleil rit
Mais bien sûr il pleut à Paris
... (Oh la la moi j'en ai marre alors!)
Monsieur Dupont habite sous un pont
Au centre de la "Grande Nation"
Croque-Monsieur, Croque-Madame
Il dort sur le macadam

C'est comme ci, c'est comme ça
C'est la vie, c'est la mort
C'est comme ci, c'est comme ci, c'est comme ça
C'est la vie, c'est la mort, c'est la mort

    General CommentTranslated to English:

    Hello, goodnight, goodbye, hello
    The chips are down and nothing goes
    A casserole to the cabaret
    A Summary on the Champs-Elysés
    Sans-culotte la Bastille
    Mr. and Mrs. Hung Guillotin
    Françoise Hardy, Jacques Dutronc
    Josephine and Napoleon

    It's like this, it's like that
    That's life that's death
    It's like this like this it's like that
    That's life that's death that's death

    A baguette, chocolate
    A coffee with milk, a coca-cola
    On the Azure coast, the sun laughs
    But it rains in Paris
    ... (Oh, me so pissed off!)
    Mr. Smith lives under a bridge
    At the center of the "Great Nation"
    Croque-Monsieur, Croque-Madame
    He sleeps on the pavement

    It's like this, it's like that
    That's life that's death
    It's like this, it's like this, it's like that
    That's life that's death, that's death
