Joe le taxi y va pas partout
Y marche pas au soda

Son saxo iavne connait toutes les rues par coeur.
Tous les p'tits bars
Tous les coins noirs

Et la Seine et ses ponts qui brillent.
Dans sa caisse la musique a Joe

C'est la rumba
Le vieux rock au mambo.

Joe le taxi
C'est sa vie
Le rhum au mambo
Embouteillage.
Ll est comme 5a
Rhum au mambo. Joe - Joe - Joe.

Dans sa caisse la musique X Joe resonne

C'est la rumba
Le vieux rock au mambo bidon.
Vas-y Joe
Vas-y Joe
Vas-y fonce

Dans la nuit vers I'Amazone.

Joe le taxi et Xavier Cugat
Joe le taxi et Yma Sumac.
Joe -- Joe - Joe.

Joe le taxi
C'est sa vie
Le rhum au mambo
Embouteillage.
Joe le taxi et les Mariachis.

Joe le taxi et le cha-cha-chi

Joe le taxi et le cha-cha-chi

Vas-y Joe
Vas-y fonce
Dans la nuit vers I'Amazone.
Joe le taxi et le cha-cha-chi.

    This song was a breath of fresh air when it appeared in the moribund british pop singles charts; jazzy, in french, by an unknown artist. The subject matter; a black guy who drives a taxi. It should'nt have been a hit, but it was! I love aytpical records like this. Vannessa paridis, we sulute you!

    Yep taxi driver story talking about the crappy music he plays in his car and that he he knows all the streets of paris

    However, there is an underlying sexual theme in the song lyrics (vas y joe vas y fonce - wjhich translates go on joe go on faster - interpret that as you will - but after all, why is this young girl spending so much time and interest in this mans taxi... For you to decide

    Joe indeed is the cab driver. She is singing about the music he plays on the radio. She also says he knows the streets by heart. It's just a little song. It's quite simple to interpret. I only have two years of french and i know it front and back.

    No, the song is about a taxi driver called 'joe'. It just describes the day to day life of the taxi driver, where, it goes etc...
