Couleurs sur Paris

On est gouvernés par des croulants,
Des chauves, des maigres,
Des gros et des grands.
Imagine un peu la gueule de ton père
Si ces messieurs avaient les cheveux verts.
Si ces messieurs avaient les cheveux verts.
 
Couleurs sur Paris
Na na na
Il est temps de changer
Na na na na na na
 
Le dieu Beaubourg est implanté
Dans un quartier qui est triste à tuer.
Prends des bombes de peinture et bombe tout.
Écris ce que tu penses sur les murs.
 
Couleurs sur Paris
Na na na
Il est temps de changer
Na na na na na na
 
Imagine un peu les rues de Paris
Ainsi bombées seraient bien moins tristes.
Les murs remplis de graffitis
ça égaierait enfin tes yeux
ça égaierait enfin tes yeux.
 
Couleurs sur Paris
Na na na
Il est temps de changer
Na na na na na na

Colours over Paris

We are ruled by old geezers,
bald ones, skinny ones,
fat ones and tall ones.
Can you imagine your father's face
if these gentlemen had green hair?
If these gentlemen had green hair...
 
Colours over Paris
...
It's time for a change
...
 
The Beaubourg1 god is located
in a deathly sad neighbourhood.
Grab some paint cans and spread paint all around.
Write your mind on the walls.
 
Colours over Paris
...
It's time for a change
...
 
Can you imagine, the streets of Paris
would be a lot less sad under all this paint.
Walls filled with graffitis,
that would cheer up your eyes at last.
That would cheer up your eyes at last.
 
Colours over Paris

It's time for a change

  • 1. that thing. It was brand new at the time and people made quite a fuss about its "modern" look

Author's comments:

The song is from the early 80's, long before hip-hop became mainstream in France. Tags didn't exist at the time, only graffitis.
This is typical French punk of the era. All guts, little brains.
Still the old geezers did deserve a good kick in the slats Teeth smile
