Ah... m'asseoir sur un banc
Cinq minutes avec toi
Et regarder les gens
Tant qu'y en a
Te parler du bon temps
Qu'est mort ou qui r'viendra
En serrant dans ma main
Tes p'tits doigts
Pi donner а bouffer
а des pigeons idiots
Leur filer des coups d'pied
Pour de faux
Et entendre ton rire
Qui lйzarde les murs
Qui sait surtout guйrir
Mes blessures
Te raconter un peu
Comment j'йtais, mino
Les bombecs fabuleux
Qu'on piquait chez l'marchand
Car en sac et Mintho
Caramels а un franc
Et les Mistral gagnants
Ah... marcher sous la pluie
Cinq minutes avec toi
Et regarder la vie
Tant qu'y en a
Te raconter la Terre
En te bouffant des yeux
Te parler de ta mиre
Un p'tit peu
Et sauter dans les flaques
Pour la faire rвler
Bousiller nos godasses
Et s'marrer
Et entendre ton rire
Comme on entend la mer
S'arrкter, repartir
En arriиre
Te raconter surtout
Les Carambars d'antan
Et les coco-boлrs
Et les vrais roudoudous
Qui nous coupaient les lиvres
Et nous niquaient les dents
Et les Mistral gagnants
Ah... m'asseoir sur un banc
Cinq minutes avec toi
Regarder le soleil
Qui s'en va
Te parler du bon temps
Qu'est mort et je m'en fous
Te dire que les mйchants
C'est pas nous
Que si moi je suis barge
Ce n'est que de tes yeux
Car ils ont l'avantage
D'кtre deux
Et entendre ton rire
S'envoler aussi haut
Que s'envolent les cris
Des oiseaux
Te raconter enfin
Qu'il faut aimer la vie
Et l'aimer mкme si
Le temps est assassin
Et emporte avec lui
Les rires des enfants
Et les Mistral gagnants
Et les Mistral gagnants

    Mistral gagnant... C'est partager du temps de qualite avec quelqu'un qu'on aime. C'est se rememorer de bons souvenirs en se rappelant avec nostalgie que ce bon temps s'est écoule et que ce qu'il en reste, c'est une multitude d'images collees à notre memoire...

    It means that everything changes and fades away. This is graciously symbolized by the sunset, the perpetual motion of the sea and the laughter of a child.

    Here's a quick translation of the lyrics, into English :
    " Ah, to sit on a bench, for five minutes with you, and watch the people all around, To talk to you about the good all times, that died but that'll come back, while holding in my hand your small fingers, Then give some food to some dumb pigeons, and kick them for false. And hear your laughter, that can crack walls, but above all, that knows how to heal my wounds, and to tell you about how I was as a kid, about those wonderful candies that we used to steal from the shop, "Car en sac" and "Mintho", one Franc caramels, and the "Mistral Gagnants".

    Ah, to walk under the rain, for 5 minutes with you, and watch life all around, To talk of the Earth, while gazing at you, Talk about your mom, just a bit, And jump into some puddles to make her grumble, to wreck our shoes and laugh, and hear you laughter, just as one can hear the sound of the sea, stopping, going back, To tell you, mostly, about yesterday's "Carambar", and "coco-boers", and true "roudoudous" that cut our lips and fucked up our teeth, and "Mistral Gagnants".

    Ah, to sit on a bench, for five minutes with you, and to look at the sun going away, to tell you about the good time, that is dead and I don't care, to tell you that we aren't the baddies, that if I'm crazy, it's only about your eyes, 'cause there are two of them, And hear your laughter flying as high as the birds' cries, And to tell you, finally, that you have to love life, and love it even if, time is a killer that takes away children's laughters, and the "Mistral Gagnants", And the "Mistral Gagnants"

    "Mistral Gagnants, Car en sac, Mintho, roudoudous, coco-boers, carambar" all are candies. This song is a father telling his daughter that time will fly, and she is going to grow up someday, but he wants her to have hope for what's about to come.
    There are probably a lot of mistakes, but I think the translation is understandable.
