Ma chambre a la forme d'une cage
Le soleil passe son bras par la fenêtre
Les chasseurs à ma porte
Comme des petits soldats
Qui veulent me prendre

{Refrain:}
Je ne veux pas travailler
Je ne veux pas déjeuner
Je veux seulement oublier
Et puis je fume

Déjà j'ai connu le parfum de l'amour
Un millions de roses
N'embaumeraient pas autant
Maintenant une seule fleur
Dans mes entourages
Me rend malade

{au Refrain}

Je ne suis pas fière de ça
Vie qui veut me tuer
C'est magnifique
Etre sympathique
Mais je ne le connais jamais

{au Refrain}

Je ne suis pas fière de ça
Vie qui veut me tuer
C'est magnifique
Etre sympathique
Mais je ne le connais jamais

{au Refrain}

    General CommentI always thought it was about a woman who had been unlucky in love... I thought the song implied that she was very popular with various men, but the one she really wanted didn't want her, or had hurt her or something. So she wants to just sit and smoke and forget about the rest of the world for a while. She has already known the smell of love (i.e. what love is) a milion times before-perhaps she's had loads of lovers, but now only one flower (so only one man)makes her ill (with love). Maybe the last verse is like her saying that she isn't a good person (maybe she pushed him away?) or that she doesn't act the way she should but she doesn't really know how, so she's shutting herself away. That's my very very loose translation and interpretation of this song :)
    I don't think she's a prostitute, but interesting pov...
