Georges Brassens – Maman, Papa lyrics

Maman, maman, en faisant cette chanson
Maman, maman, je r'deviens petit garзon
Alors je suis sage en classe et pour te faire plaisir
J'obtiens les meilleures places, ton dйsir
Maman, maman, je prйfиre а mes jeux fous
Maman, maman, demeurer sur tes genoux
Et sans un mot dire, entendre tes refrains charmants
Maman, maman, maman, maman

Papa, papa, en faisant cette chanson
Papa, papa, je r'deviens petit garзon
Et je t'entends sous l'orage user tout ton humour
Pour redonner du courage а nos cњurs lourds
Papa, papa, il n'y eut pas entre nous
Papa, papa, de tendresse ou de mots doux
Pourtant on s'aimait, bien qu'on ne se l'avouвt pas
Papa, papa, papa, papa

Maman, papa, en faisant cette chanson
Maman, papa, je r'deviens petit garзon
Et, grвce а cet artifice, soudain je comprends
Le prix de vos sacrifices, mes parents
Maman, papa, toujours je regretterai
Maman, papa, de vous avoir fait pleurer
Au temps oщ nos cњurs ne se comprenaient encor pas
Maman, papa, maman, papa.
