Les flonflons du bal,
A grands coups de cymbale,
Et l'accordйon
Secouent ma chanson.
Les flonflons du bal
Donnent un festival
En dessous de chez moi,
Tous les soirs du mois.

J'ai beau tourner ma clй,
Ma clй а triple tour,
Ils sont toujours mкlйs
A mes histoires d'amour.
Les flonflons du bal,
Le long des murs sales,
Montent par bouffйes
Jusqu'а mon grenier.

Les flonflons du bal,
A grands coups de cymbale,
Et l'accordйon
Secouent ma chanson.
Quand j'ai du chagrin,
C'est le mкme refrain.
Qu'on soit presque mort,
Ils jouent aussi fort.

J'ai bien failli mourir
Le jour oщ t'es parti
Mais, pour les attendrir,
Mon c?ur n'a pas suffi.
Les flonflons du bal,
Зa leur est йgal:
Vous pouvez pleurer.
Eux, ils font danser...

Eux, ils vendent la joie.
C'est chacun pour soi.
C'est tant mieux pour eux.
C'est tant pis pour moi...

    Even when i’m grieving, it’s the same refrain. Even if you’re nearly dead, it’s played just as loud. I nearly died, the day that you left. But to soften the music, my heart wasn’t enough. The dance band music, it doesn’t care. You might be crying, but the music’s for dancing …the music, it’s selling joy, everyone for himself, it’s better for them, too bad for me …
