I won’t finish my life in Timbuktu
Cheeks so tight my lips are turning blue
I'd like to be wrinkled
Utterly wrinkled
Wrinkled like a Triplet from Belleville

Don’t want to wind my days in Acapulco
Stiff as a board dancing tango-tango
I'd love to be twisted
Utterly twisted
Twisted like a Triplet from Belleville
(Come on Girls!)

Refrain:
Swinging Belleville rendez-vous
Marathon dancing doop dee doop
Vaudou Cancan balais taboo
Au Belleville swinging rendez-vous

I won’t be an old man in Singapore
Playing scrabble and eating petits-fours
I want to be wicked,
Utterly wicked,
Wicked like the Triplets from Belleville

I don’t want to end my life in Honolulu
Singing like a bird in an ormolu
I want to be as rough
Every bit as rough
Rough, rough as a Triplet from Belleville

Refrain

Don’t mind ending my life in Katmandu
Signing with a sitar and a guru
But I’d prefer to be
Utterly flying
Swinging with the Triplets from Belleville
(Come on Girls!)

Refrain

    General CommentHm... It works with the tune still, but I tried translating the French and it was only partly like this version. Guess it wouldn't fit the tune if it was translated literally.
    ...Gah. The chorus is stuck in my head, and it won't leave for days. It happened last time I heard this!
