Stereolab – Enivrez-Vous lyrics

Il faut нtre toujours ivre. Tout est lа: c'est l'unique question. Pour ne pas sentir l'horrible fardeau du temps qui brise vos йpaules et vous penche vers la terre, il faut vous enivrer sans
Ve. Mais de quoi? De vin, de poйsie ou de vertu, а votre guise. Mais enivrez-vous. Et si quelquefois, sur les marches d'un palais, sur l'herbe verte d'un fossй, dans la solitude morne de vot
Ambre, vous vous rйveillez, l'ivresse dйjа diminuйe ou disparue, demandez au vent, а la vague, а l'йtoile, а l'oiseau, а l'horloge, а tout ce qui fuit, а tout ce qui gйmit, а tout c
Roule, а tout ce qui chante, а tout ce qui parle, demandez quelle heure il est; et le vent, la vague, l'йtoile, l'oiseau, l'horloge, vous rйpondront: "il est l'heure de s'enivrer! Po
нtre pas les esclaves martyrisйs du temps, enivrez-vous; enivrez-vous sans cesse! De vin, de poйsie ou de vertu, а votre guise. "

And the translation:
Get drunk!

One should always be drunk. That's all that matters: that's our one imperative need. So as not to feel time's horrible burden that breaks your shoulders and bows you down, you must get drunk wit
Ceasing. But what with? With wine, with poetry, or with virtue, as you choose. But get drunk. And if, at some time, on the steps of a palace, in the green grass of a ditch, in the bleak solitude
Our room, you are waking up when drunkeness has already abated, ask the wind, the wave, a star, the clock, all that which flees, all that which groans, all that which rolls, all that which sings
That which speaks, ask them what time it is; and the wind, the wave, the star, the bird, the clock will reply: "it is time to get drunk! So that you may not be the martyred slaves of time,
Drunk, get drunk, and never pause for rest! With wine, with poetry, or with vitrtue, as you choose! "
