Pour oublier ses kilos To forget her pounds
Elle calcule ses fafiots She calculates her banknotes
Si il lui manque un bifton If a buck is missing
Alors il y a baston Then there's a beating
Du genre qui rigole pas of the kind that isn't funny
Et un coup de pompe dans le chat And a kick of the cat
Elle descend au bistro She goes downstairs to the bistro
Siffler ses quinze Pernods Whistles her 15 Pernods
Arrivee au troquet Arriving at the cafe
Sa presence laisse muet. Her presence leaves them speechless
Marcelle Ratafia Marcelle Ratafia
La madonne de la mafia The madonna of the mafia
Marcelle Ratafia Marcelle Ratafia
La madonne de la mafia The madonna of the mafia
C'est la madonne de la mafia She's the madonna of the mafia
C'est la madonne de la mafia she's the madonna of the mafia
Elle a cinquante cinq piges She's 55 years old
Faut pas lui faire la pige But that doesn't leave her in the dust
Oui c'est la reine du racket Yes, she's the queen of the racket
Discute pas paie tes dettes Don't talk, pay your debts
Narvalo ou nervi Narvalo or hatchet man
Touchez pas au grisbi Don't touch the loot
Les routiers sont sympas The truck drivers are nice
Dans la sueur et le caca In the sweat and the caca
Ratafia les assume Paf Ratafia takes charge in a jiffy
Ratafia les deplume Ratafia plucks them
Marcelle Ratafia Marcelle Ratafia
La madonne de la mafia The madonna of the mafia
Marcelle Ratafia Marcelle Ratafia
La madonne de la mafia The madonna of the mafia
C'est la madonne de la mafia She's the madonna of the mafia
C'est la madonne de la mafia she's the madonna of the mafia
Dans ses yeux on peut lire In her eyes one can read
Moi, j't'eclate la tirelire Me, I blow up the moneybox
P't*** bourgeois, commercants The little bourgeois, tradespeople
Attention au serment Pay attention to the oath
Toutes ses dents sont en or All her teeth are of gold
Son parfum purodor Her heady perfume
Vous laisse a desirer leaves you all to desire
Mais Marcelle quelle beaute But Marcelle what a beauty
Y'en a pas deux comme elle There aren't two like her
Marcelle est tant cruelle Marcelle is so cruel
Marcelle Ratafia Marcelle Ratafia
La madonne de la mafia The madonna of the mafia
Marcelle Ratafia Marcelle Ratafia
La madonne de la mafia The madonna of the mafia
C'est la madonne de la mafia She's the madonna of the mafia
C'est la madonne de la mafia she's the madonna of the mafia
