Monkey whore showed the pregnant girl the door
For something that she saw
Underneath the bed
She said it's the devil that saw
In the mirror that she swore at
Smashed into pieces

Now the flowers in the teapot have all died
Just like the child
Was that just in her mind?
She says her heart is growing cold
Now the window will not close
Perhaps she'll put a spell on you

Perhaps she'll put a spell on you

Heu... Est-ce que tu veux m'embrasser?
Dis oui
Oui
Dis oui, tu veux m'embrasser?
C'est chouette
C'est chouette, hein?

Je me joins à toi
Comme la vague
Se joint à la mer

Je t'aime
Tu le sais
Mais ça ne fait rien

Je me joins à toi
Comme la vague
Se joint à la mer

Je t'aime
Tu le sais
Mais ça ne fait rien

C'est la fin de la chanson?

    General Commentvery underappreciated song

    the song seems to be about some guy who is treating the woman extremly poorly causing her too feel insecure and cold within but, as you can see from the french lyrics, she continues to love him even though she nows its pointless.

    beautiful yet sad at the same time. i think the french part is in french purely for an extra pinch of romanticism.


    english translation:

    Erm ... Do you want my number?
    Say Yes
    Yes
    Say yes, you want my number?
    Is it nice
    Is it nice, huh?

    I join you
    As the wave
    is attached to the sea

    I love you
    You know
    But it does nothing

    I join you
    As the wave
    is attached to the sea

    I love you
    You know
    But it does nothing

    This is the end of the song?

    General CommentWho is the woman singing the French part?

    I really like this song, it's soft and has a sweet sound...I'm not sure what it could mean, though.

    General Commentmy guess as to what it means:

    the monkey whore i think is a man who gets a woman pregnant, but then leaves her, because she saw something under the bed, havent got a clue what that means
    then because the father has left she feels the baby has sort of died in spirit
    and then the french bit shows how the relationship started as just something casual, but it moved into something more for the woman but remained casual for the man - the woman says: "i love you, but it does nothing".

    but yeah that could be all wrong. very good song
