Viens danser
Viens frôler la mort
Dans l'armée
Oh le rythme a du corps

Faut t'allonger te planquer
Eviter les balles doum doum
Si tu tires pas le premier
Ou si tu fais trop le clown
Y a ta tête qui va faire boum

Quand la guerre est déclarée
Faut se lever saluer
Pour le pouvoir d'un seul homme
En tuer des milliers
Ça fera une fête pour danser

Gros sous-marins
Et jolies croisières
Ça fait rêver
Les beaux militaires

Toujours d'accord pour partir
Jamais sûr de revenir
Pour qui vient de se marier
La guerre y a rien de pire
Sauf pour qui aime frémir

Quand les couleurs sont hissées
Faut se lever saluer
Et la fanfare va jouer
Un air pour les encourager
Ce rythme a ses qualités

Une vie de chien
Moi ça me fait pas peur
Obéir
C'est peut-être le bonheur
Pas besoin d'avoir d'idées
On nous fournit la rancœur
Quand l'uniforme est porté
On comprend mieux sa valeur
Prestige pour les jolis cœurs

Si vous passez sur la place
Pour venir me ramasser
Surtout ne cherchez pas la trace
C'est dans le dos qu'on m'a tiré
Devinez dans quel sens j'allais?

    General CommentDaniel wrote a lot of similar songs about war and soldiers, as he was very upset about his brother who died serving in the French military. Daniel hated the idea of war, military...

    This song is a bit sarcastic.

    Here is a brief translation in English:
    COME AND DANCE

    come and dance
    Come close to death
    In the army
    Oh the rhythm of the body!

    You must lie down and hide
    Avoid dum dum bullets
    If you do not shoot first
    Or mess about,
    Your head will explode

    When the war is declared
    You must stand straight and salute
    For the power of one man
    Thousands are killed
    It will make a feast for dancing
    Oh yes, how beautiful!

    Large submarines
    Beautiful cruises
    What a dream
    For the finest military!

    Always okay to go
    Never sure to return
    To those who just got married
    The war there is nothing worse
    Except for those who love the thrill

    When the colors are hoisted
    Have to get up to greet
    And the band will play
    An air to encourage them
    This rhythm has its qualities
    Oh yes, how beautiful!

    A Dog's Life
    Me, it does not scare me
    To obey,
    Maybe it is happiness

    No need to have ideas
    We are given the rancor
    When the uniform is worn
    We can better understand its value
    Luxury for pretty hearts

    If you pass the square
    To come and pick me up
    Especially look for no trace
    It's in the back that I was fired
    Guess which way I was going?
    Oh yes, it is beautiful....
