"Can't Speak French" as written by and Miranda Eleanor De Fonbrune/higgins Cooper....
I wait underneath the covers
All night beside you
And who could ever question any crying I do

My heavy heart is beating out a rhythm
All night inside me
And I fall a little harder every time that I do

Watch me living it up, you totally
Got me stuck in a rut, you're made for me
How am I gonna step up and say to you
I get the feeling boy, I want you, want you

(Now)
Conversation is tough because you're totally
Walking around all the stuff you wanna say to me
Words are never enough
Oh, baby, baby, you turn my dust to gold

I can't speak French
So I'll let the funky music do the talking talking
Now oh
I can't speak French
So I'll let the funky music do the talking

Oh, oh, oh
I can't speak French
So I'll let the funky music do the talking talking
Now oh
I can't speak French
So I'll let the funky music do the talking

I gotta let you know
I wanna give in to my temptation
And let my feelings show
I gotta let you know oh, oh, oh

I gotta let you know
I wanna give in to my temptation
And let my feelings show
I gotta let you know oh, oh, oh

I can't speak French
So I'll let the funky music do the talking talking
Now oh
I can't speak French so I'll let the funky
Music do the talking

Oh, oh, oh
I can't speak French
So I'll let the funky music do the talking talking
Now oh
I can't speak French
So I'll let the funky music do the talking

    General Commenthaha tommyhaych i agree with you
    but i think theres a level of irony in that.theyre siging about not being able to speak french,so "let the funky music do the talking talking now"...yet they cant come up with good lyrics but the catchy beat kinda saves its ass.kinda.LMAO

    General CommentThey suck at french, so they whore themselves out with the music. Simple to understand lyrics.

    General CommentI think "french" means the language of love,
    And then the "let the funky music..." bit is about how they speak with actions, rather than words.

    General CommentIts just a pop song, obvious meaning but still the girls look gorgeous in the video, and I love to look at them even though i'm not a serious fan of their music.

    My OpinionFlorence And The Machine does a fantastic cover that just blows this away. Singer Florence Welch makes an otherwise insipid song by the Girls sound smarter, prettier and sexier.
