"Alors on danse" as written by and Paul Van Haver....
Throw your hands in the sky right now
(Alors on danse)
(Alors on d)
Throw your hands in the sky right now
It's going down

Unfortunately for the rest of ya’ll
I’m way better than the best of all
And even though they focus on just the flaws
They still gonna annihilate the festivals
And we still gonna sip Dom Perignon
And still gonna eat the filet mignon
Yeah, yeah, yeah I’ve been known to cover up my eyes
With the Ray Beons

Alors on danse
Alors on danse
Alors on danse
Alors on danse
Alors on d (Throw your hands in the sky right now)
Alors on

Flashing lights, the stress of life
Its way too much to handle in one night
Live this life like there’s no tomorrow
Wake up in Paris with a Russian model
Throw your hands in the sky
If anybody got five dollars in your pocket right now
I call this club Titanic
Why? 'Cause it’s going down

Alors on danse
Alors on danse
Alors on danse
Alors on danse

Alors on chante
Lalalalalala, lalalalalala
Alors on chante
Lalalalalala, lalalalalala
Alors on chante

(Throw your hands in the sky right now)
Alors on chante
(Throw your hands in the sky right now)
Et puis seulement quand c'est fini
Alors on danse
Alors on danse
Alors on danse
Alors on danse

Roll call in the club
Life’s a bitch feel her up
She be in my mind like a microchip
I’m ready to blow like nitroglis
Gone gone like a light so trick
I am on some psycho shit
Dance floor every night my bliss
Fed up with the rub don't bite your lip
Bon T.R.S. and pure gold
Max this out in Euros
Bartender fill it up 'til I can’t remember
Feeling hot summer nights in the winter
I’mma better my life till we all sit up
Since we are here we are live
Ye and I make you touch the sky

Lalalalalala, lalalalalala
Alors on chante
Lalalalalala, lalalalalala
Alors on chante

Alors on chante
Et puis seulement quand c'est fini
Alors on danse
(Throw your hands in the sky right now)
Alors on danse
Alors on danse
(Throw your hands in the sky right now)
Alors on danse
(It's goin' down)

    General Commenti totally agree! this song is awesome!!
    it keeps me awake and makes me wanna move :p

    i also tried to translate it and i think i've got it although i'm not quite sure of some things xD


    So/Then we d… (x3)

    Who says study says work
    Who says work says you money
    Who says money says expenses
    Who says credit says claim
    Who says debt says you bailiff
    Who says sit in the sh*t
    Who says love says kids
    Say always and say divorce
    Who says (be)loved ones says you mourning cuz problems never come alone
    Who says crisis says you world says famine says third-world
    Who says tiredness says wake up while still deaf from last night
    So/Then we go out to forget all problems
    So/Then we dance… (x9)
    And there you tell yourself that it's over cuz worse than this would be death
    When you think in the end that you're leaving when there's more and there is more
    Ecstasy says problem problems or else music
    That makes you trip that grabs you by the head and then you pray for it to stop
    But it's your body it's not heaven so you cover your ears more
    and here you scream even harder and it persists
    So we sing
    Lalalalalala, Lalalalalala,
    So we sing
    Lalalalalala, Lalalalalala

    So we sing (x2)
    And then only when it's finished, then we dance
    So we dance (x7)
    and there is more

    Lyric CorrectionI think these are the correct lyrics (with translation underneath). Corrections welcome!

    Alors on d… (x3)
    So we d…

    Qui dit étude dit travail
    Who says study says work

    Qui dit taf te dit les thunes
    Who says work says to you cash

    Qui dit argent dit dépenses
    Who says money says expenses

    Qui dit crédit dit créance
    Who says credit says debt

    Qui dit dette te dit huissier
    Who says debt says bailiff

    Et lui dit assis dans la merde
    And says to himself sitting in the shit

    Qui dit Amour dit les gosses
    Who says love says kids

    Dit toujours et dit divorce
    Says always and says divorce

    Qui dit proches te dit deuils
    Who says loved ones says to you grief

    Car les problèmes ne viennent pas seuls
    Because problems don’t come alone

    Qui dit crise te dit monde
    Who says crisis says to you world

    Dit famine et dit tiers-monde
    Says famine and says third world

    Qui dit fatigue dit reveille
    Who says fatigue says wake up

    Encore sourd de la veille
    Still deaf from the day before

    Alors on sort pour oublier tous les problèmes
    So we go out to forget all our problems

    Alors on danse (x9)
    So we dance

    Et là tu te dis que c'est fini
    And there you tell yourself it’s over

    Car pire que ça ce serait la mort
    Because worse, that would be death

    Quand tu crois enfin que tu t'en sors
    When you believe it’s finally over, you leave it

    Quand y en a plus et ben y en a encore
    When there is more of it and, well, more still

    Est-ce la zik ou les problèmes, les problèmes ou bien la musique
    Is it music or problems, problems or, well, music

    Ça te prend les trips
    It takes you on trips (as in drugs)

    Ça te prend la tête
    It takes you by the head

    Et puis tu pries pour que ça s'arrête
    And then you pray that it stops

    Mais c'est ton corps, c'est pas le ciel
    But it’s your body, it’s not heaven

    Alors tu te bouches plus les oreilles
    So you push your fingers even more in your ears

    Et là tu cries encore plus fort, mais ça persiste
    And there you shout still louder, but it carries on

    Alors on chante
    So we sing

    Lalalalalala, Lalalalalala

    Alors on chante
    So we sing

    Lalalalalala, Lalalalalala

    Alors on chante (x2)
    So we sing

    Et puis seulement quand c'est fini
    And then only when it’s finished

    Alors on danse (x7)
    Then we dance

    Et ben y en a encore (x5)
    And well, there is still more of it

    General CommentIt sounds more like "lui dit ainsi dans la merde" and "ecstasy communique", although I'm not even sure if it's ecstasy.

    Could be wrong, French isn't my first language.
