I Got The Message

I got the message and the message is clear
I really really really really wish you were here
It was written on the back of a carton d'allumettes
It says I don't really miss you but I haven't tried yet
I got the message & the message is proof
There really is a thing they call the rhythm of youth
It will pick you up and it will make you wiggle this way
Et c'est facile a dire and it's easy to say

Well it's mine [They got this thing they call the rhythm of life]
Not Yours [It says to settle down & get a dog and a wife]
Get down [And everybody's doing it all over the land]
On all fours [Et oui je ne comprends pas oh yes i don't understand]
It's long [I got the message and the message is clear]
And hard [I really really really really wish you were here]
This road [It was written on the back of a carton d'allumettes]
To mars [I don't really miss you but I haven't tried yet]

Got a good thing, yeah, got you going
Everybody's moving, watch out it's showing
I have done a good thing I've got you dancing, Everybody's happy
I have done a good thing, I've got you moving, Everybody's dancing
They're really grooving
I have done a good thing don't dansez moderne
Everybody's happy

I got the message and the message is clear
I really really really really wish you were here
It was written on the back of a carton d'allumettes
It says I don't really miss you but I haven't tried yet
I got the message & the message is proof
There really is a thing they call the rhythm of youth
It will pick you up and it will make you wiggle this way
Et c'est facile a dire and it's easy to say

C'est mon [They got this thing they call the rhythm of life]
C'est toi [It says to settle down & get a dog and a wife]
C'est nous [And everybody's doing it all over the land]
C'est cool [Et oui je ne comprends pas oh yes i don't understand]
C'est long [i got the message and the message is clear]
C'est dur [i really really really really wish you were here]
Frappons [it was written on the back of a carton d'allumettes]
Nos tetes contre les murs

Me, you, us cool, long, hard, hit our heads against the wall

[I don't really miss you but I haven't tried yet]

I got a good thing yeah, got you going
Everybody's moving, it's really showing
I have done a good thing I've got you dancing, Everybody's happy
I have done a good thing, I've got you moving, Everybody's dancing,
It's really groovy
I have done a good thing, don't dansez moderne
And Everybody's happy

I got the message and the message is clear
I really really really really wish you were here
It was written on the back of a carton d'allumettes
It says I don't really miss you but I haven't tried yet
I got the message & the message is proof
There really is a thing they call the rhythm of youth
It will pick you up and it will make you wiggle this way
Et c'est facile a dire and it's easy to say

It's mine [they got this thing they call the rhythm of life]
Not Yours [it says to settle down & get a dog and a wife]
Get down [and everybody's doing it all over the land]
On all fours [et oui je ne comprends pas oh yes i don't understand]
It's long [i got the message and the message is clear]
And hard [i really really really really wish you were here]
This road [it was written on the back of a carton d'allumettes]
Road to mars [I don't really miss you but I haven't tried yet]
