Sur les passerelles а l’embarquementPopulaires ou premiиres, derriиre ou devantOn monte les malles, des quais sur le pontOn charge dans les cales de l’acier, des juronsNe manque plus qu’un signe, du capitaine un motDes cabines aux cuisinesSur le mкme bateauOn the boarding footbridgesCoaches or first classes, back or frontWe bring the luggage, from quays on boardWe fill in the hold with steel, with swear wordsOnly waiting for a sign, from a captain one wordFrom cabins to kitchensOn the same boatUn doigt de champagne, un toast au dйpartDans les soutes le bagne et les heures de quartDes soirйes mondaines, des valses ou tangosAux ombres, а la peine, un mauvais tord boyauEn attendant l’escale, athиnes ou macaoSous les mкmes йtoilesSur le mкme bateauA finger of champagne, a toast to the departureIn all the holds, the penal section and the hours of shiftsSociety receptions, waltzes or tangosTo shadows, to sorrow, a bad alcoholWhile waiting for the ports of call, athens or macauUnder the same starsOn the same boatAu feu des machines, souffre matelotPrиs de la piscine, les belles et les beauxDes salles de moteurs, des salons joyauxIci la sueur, le plus grand luxe en hautMais vienne une tempкte, une lame en sursautToutes les вmes s’inquiиtentSur le mкme bateauUnder the fire of the machines, sailor suffersNear the swimming pool, the pretties and the handsomesFrom engine rooms, from jewel living roomsHere the sweat, the biggest luxury upstairsBut comes a storm, a wave higher than the othersAll the souls are worriedOn the same boatQuand les astres s’en mкlent sur l’immense ocйanQuand tout devient si frкle face aux йlementsPlus de rang plus de classe, plus de bagne ou de beauChacun la mкme angoisseSur le mкme bateau, sur le mкme bateauWhen the stars take part of it on the huge oceanWhen everything becomes so fragile to the elementsNo rank no class, no jail workers no handsomesEveryone the same distressOn the same boat, on the same boatSur le mкme, sur le mкme bateauSur le mкme bateauOn the same, on the same boatOn the same boat
