I look down the hallway it feels so good
I wonder why I feel so, I feel so good
And then I - muh, muh, muh, muh, muh, muh, muh, muh, muh
Then I look up at the big blue sky

Ze swe, ze swe
Le pee, le pee pee pee

[repeat throughout song]

    General CommentI'm pretty sure he says, "Je suis, je suis / L'hippie, l'hippie." Essentially that'd be "I am a hippie" in French, although I was taught that the word for hippie is "baba cool."
    But maybe I'm just hearing things based on the title.

    General CommentThese lyrics are completely wrong.

    On the first part I hear:
    I look down the hallway, it feels so good
    I look down the hallway, it's understood.

    General CommentThe song is a cover of Jacques Dutronc Hippie Hippie Hourra, from 1967.
    You can check a quick video on chansons.ina.fr/…

    General Commentbattt is right, it's a Dutronc cover.

    But "je suis" means "I Am", right, and "Le pee" just means "The Pee?"

    General CommentThanks for the tip on the cover.

    You can hear the whole original song here: deezer.com/track/…

    The original lyrics are:

    J'aime les fleurs et la fumée,
    Je ne suis plus un révolté
    Les beatnicks c'est dépassé,
    Maintenant le monde, il faut l'aimer

    Je suis hippie, je suis hippie,
    C'est ma nouvelle philosophie
    Hippie, hippie, hourra!
    Vive le mocoutra

    Ceux qui me cassent la figure,
    Ceux qui me marchent sur les pieds
    Ceux qui me cognent en voiture,
    Ceux qui me cognent sur le nez

    Papa, maman, toute la famille,
    L'église, l'armée et la patrie
    Je les aime,
    Je les aime,
    Je les aime...

    Je suis hippie, je suis hippie,
    C'est ma nouvelle philosophie
    Hippie, hippie, hourra!
    Vive le mocoutra

    Je me suis tatoué des fleurs,
    Sur la poitrine, et puis ailleurs
    J'ai loué une place sur un bateau,
    Qui partes pour San Francisco

    Je suis hippie, je suis hippie,
    Ce est ma nouvelle philosophie
    Hippie, hippie, hourra!
    Vive le mocoutra.

    Si vous ne m'aimez pas,
    Ça n'a aucune importance
    C'est moi qui vous aime,
    Et vive la France...

    Based on that video Dutronc looks like he stuck to the swinging 60s/rat pack kind of style well into the end of the decade. Given that this song looks like a tongue-in-cheek send-up about hippies. He’s saying he’s turned a new leaf. He loves everybody — people who step on his toes, punch him in the face, the church, the government, the army. Everybody. He’s basically making fun of the stereotypical hippie mentality. Especially coming from him.

    I love both versions. That riff is just so epic.

    General Commentthese lyrics are completely off
    this is what i hear:

    i look down the hallway, it feels so good
    i look at the women, its understood
    i went down the hallway, how 'bout that
    and then i look up at the big blue sky

    *french part*

    the second part is different, i can't understand it completely sadly :(

    Lyric Correctionyou are all mostly wrong. here they are:

    i look down the hallway, it looks so good
    i look at the women, it's understood
    i went down the hallway, say bye bye bye
    and then i look up and i say goodnight

    je suis je suis hippie shwiwiw

    i went down the hallway
    i must admit that it feels so good
    i went down the hallway said bye bye bye
    and then i look up and i say goodbye (or goodnight, they say both)

    General CommentWell, the song is based on "Hippie hippie hourra" by Jacques Dutronc. In the original (J.D) version, he says "je suis hippie, je suis hippie, c'est ma nouvelle philosophie" which means "I am hippie, I am hippie, it's my new philosophy".

    And, don't offend, but he was mocking hippies (seems he was already too old when they appeared), so the song is funny but a bit disrespectful, since it's very ironic.

    If you want some more infos about the original song, don't hesitate to ask (I'll answer if I can).

    Ah, and yeah, "baba cool" is a term we use for hippies, but personnaly I learnt that word when I was 18 (never heard it before, and French's my mothertongue) and almost never use it - I use "hippie" with a French accent. ^^
