Pink Martini – Sympathique lyrics

Ma chambre a la forme d'une cage
Le soleil passe son bras par la fenкtre
Les chasseurs а ma porte
Comme les p'tits soldats
Qui veulent me prendre

Je ne veux pas travailler
Je ne veux pas dйjeuner
Je veux seulement l'oublier
Et puis je fume

Dйjа j'ai connu le parfum de l'amour
Un million de roses n'embaumerait pas autant
Maintenant une seule fleur dans mes entourages
Me rend malade

Je ne veux pas travailler
Je ne veux pas dйjeuner
Je veux seulement l'oublier
Et puis je fume

Je ne suis pas fiиre de зa
Vie qui veut me tuer
C'est magnifique кtre sympathique
Mais je ne le connais jamais

Je ne veux pas travailler
Non
Je ne veux pas dйjeuner
Je veux seulement l'oublier
Et puis je fume

Je ne suis pas fiиre de зa
Vie qui veut me tuer
C'est magnifique кtre sympathique
Mais je ne le connais jamais

Je ne veux pas travailler
Non
Je ne veux pas dйjeuner
Je veux seulement l'oublier
Et puis je fume

    "the shoes at my door" is an incorrect translation.
    Shoes are spelled "chaussures" in french, whereas the lyrics state: "chasseurs" (which could be 'soldiers, ' 'hunters, ' or more likely 'bellhops'--as in a hotel).
    The more correct meaning is likely a woman is languishing all day in a hotel, wanting to forget a lover and declining all invitations to leave her room/cage.
    Further into the song, I misheard the lyric as, "je veux seulement oublier" (i just want to forget)--making me think the song was about a prostitute who in order to forget her problems was, without any pleasure or pride, taking on men and smoking after s**.
    I didn't hear the "l" in the "l'oublier" (i just want to forget it/him) changing the meaning to smoking to pass the time and to forget about the ex-lover. Languishing all day in the room, and not being active, is what she is not proud of.
