Nous, de temps en temps
nous sommes des enfants
sans problèmes ni loi
de nos droits on est sûr
les mains sales d'confiture
contre le sofa

Depuis ce matin
nos patte sont en satin,
fauves les yeux pleins d'sauvage
dans la nuit d'la savane
se moquant de la rage
d'quelq'un en panne. . .

Oh, spleen, oh, reverie
Oh, spleen, oh, symphony
Oh, spleen, oh, memory!

Oui, pardon, pardon. . .
Ah, oui, glissons, glissons. . .
Habillé en bel-homme, j'ai perdue ma jeunesse
Mon visage de canaille,
en lain-grisaille. . .

Oui, de temps en temps. . .

    General CommentThe incredibly talented Greg Dulli (Afghan Whigs, Twilight Singers, Gutter Twins) described this song as to how he would introduce himself personally, through a song. It seems a fit to me - from his wild youth, to now a 50+ man (Dressed as a handsome man, I've lost my youth) - his path has been an extreme life's journey which has left us a treasure trove of gorgeous music along that blazed path.
