Stromae – Moules Frites lyrics

[Couplet 1]
Sais-tu ce qu'il m'a dit Paulo
Ou que son petit doigt lui dit, plutôt
Quand ce dernier se lève, c'est qu'une coquille de rêve, est sortie de l'eau
Et là il chante :

[Refrain]
Paulo aime les moules frites, sans frites et sans mayo
Paulo aime les moules frites, sans frites et sans mayo
Yo yo yo, yo yo yooo
Yo yo yo, yo yo yooo

[Couplet 2]
Mais avant qu'il passe à table
Il boit toujours un verre de blanc
Pour oublier l'exécrable
Sur et si âcre goût de l'océan
Et il est tellement agile, Paulo
Qu'il ne doit même pas supplier
Et c'est à chaque fois si facile
Mais cette fois-ci elle est un peu moins fragile que ce que Paulo imagine
Mais du moment qu'elle criait :

[Refrain]
Paulo aime les moules frites, sans frites et sans mayo
Paulo aime les moules frites, sans frites et sans mayo
Yo yo yo, yo yo yooo
Yo yo yo, yo yo yooo

[Couplet 3]
Mais il aurait du s'en méfier, Paulo
Car on ne sait où elle s'est baignée, plus tôt
Comme elle était contaminée, Paulo ne chantera plus
Ou peut-être, une fois enterré, Paulo
On chantera tous :

[Outro]
Paulo aimait les moules frites, sans frites et sans mayo'
À toi Paulooo
Paulo aimait les moules frites, sans frites et sans mayo'
On chantera tous pour toi
Yo yo yo, yo yo yooo
Yo yo yo, yo yo yooo

    Very smart song...

    The title refer to a Belgium specialty: Moules-Frites which is mussels with french fries (and sometimes eaten with mayonnaise). Seems quite innocent so far: a Belgium singer celebrating one of his national dishes...

    Things get more interesting at the refrain, when Paulo, the main character is said to like this dish but without the french fries and without the mayonnaise (Paulo aime les moules frites, sans frites et sans mayo...). So he likes mussels. You have to also know that "moule" is the equivalent in french of "pussy"... Now you can read the whole song with a totally different perspective: the story of a guy who likes women and know how to please them, until he encounters a mussel who bathed who knows where, in a contaminated water... And he will die from that...

    Now nearly every line is a pun, given you read it with the right prism:
    - Verse 1, line 2: his finger lift when he sees a beautiful shell getting out of the water... I let you guess what is lifting....
    - Verse 2, line 4: the pungent taste of the ocean... refer to another taste of the feminine anatomy...
    etc, etc,

    People went nuts over this lyrics, sometime finding meaning when in my opinion there isn't (like associating mayonnaise to sperm or the word mayo(nnaise) which is a homonym for maillot (swimsuit), implying maybe without condom, etc...)

    All in all a very nice song, a very nice sound, a very sound message and a very nice subject of discussion with your french speaking girl/boyfriend.
