Lap Dance in English
Reviewed/Translated by John Elkhoury
COMPREHENSION DIFFICULTY: EASY
Like all my music reviews, I start with a French to English translation then critique the lyrics and style below.



Toi mon amour, mon immense, mon battement du cœur 
You my love, my great, my heartbeat
Dis-moi quand tu danses, dis-moi quand tu danses
Tell me when you dance, tell me when you dance
Toi mon amour, mon insolence, mon jeu de tambour
You my love, my insolence, my drumming
Dis à quoi tu penses, dis à quoi tu penses
Say what you think, say what you think


Mais quelle violence de faire ce tour là nuit le jour
But what violence makes night turn into day
Tu danses et chantes et toi tu cours
You dance, sing, et you run
C’est un scandale
It’s a scandal


Dis quand tu danses, à quoi tu penses?
Tell me what you’re thinking about while you dance
(Literally: say when you dance, what you think)
Dis quand tu danses, à quoi tu penses?
Tell me what you’re thinking about while you dance


Attends mon amour, mon désir, ma goutte d’absinthe
Wait my love, my desire, my drop of absinthe (an alcoholic beverage)
Paroles trouvée sur La Tourte 
Words found in the pie
J’ai oublié de te dire, J’ai oublié de te dire
I had forgot to tell you, I had forgot to tell you
Attends mon amour, mon sourire, je sais que tu n’es pas une sainte
Wait my love, my smile, I know that you’re not a saint
Mais l’enfer transpire et le Paradis, je connais pas
But hell sweats and paradise (heaven), I don’t know
Mais quelle insolence de faire le tour de mon pourtour 
But such insolence makes trips around my perimeter
Quand d’autre payent un Lap Dance, assassinant le suspense
When another payment, a lap dance, steals the suspense


Dis quand tu danses, à quoi tu penses?
Tell me what you’re thinking about while you dance
Dis quand tu danses, à quoi tu penses?
Tell me what you’re thinking about while you dance
Dis quand tu danses, est-ce que tu pense à moi?
Say when you dance, are you thinking about me? 


Repeat

This is a very easy song for beginning French learners to pick up on. The chorus is very repetitive and uses words that are rather easy to pronounce. There isn’t much more to say about the lyrics, our singer is obviously fond of someone giving him a lap dance! 
Ycare is a Lebanese born Frenchman, who was a contestant on Nouvelle Star (French American Idol). Although he didn’t win, he received a record deal and produced several singles.
