English translation

Provocative

Provocative
You do it on purpose
when you arouse yourself1
in front of his beautiful eyes.
 
Innocent,
you know it, you do it on purpose,
when you wriggle,
you're really at your best.
 
Who are you?
Ooh, who are you?
Who are you?
Tell me, tell me whatcha are?2
 
Provocative
you know it, you do it on purpose,
when you sway your hips
in front of his beautiful eyes
 
Innocent,
you know it, you do it on purpose,
when you bend over backwards
in front of these gentlemen.
 
Who are you?
Ooh, who are you?
Who are you?
Tell me, tell me whatcha are?
Who are you?
 
When you undo your hair
nobody would lower their eyes for anything at all
You would restore the sight of anyone who'd have lost it,
what with you being so eager, so eager.
 
With your gait, guys are having a hard time3
as your hand slides all the way down your thigh,
you know you've got it, you know you've got it,
you've got the twist baby, you've got the twist.
 
Who are you?
Ooh, who are you?
Who are you?
Tell me, tell me whatcha are?
 
I'm tiptoeing home
late at night.
I'm a night girl,
Baby Lily4's sister.
I make men dream,
I craze them with love.
I make men dream,
it makes them crazy with love
forever more, night and day.
 
I make men dream,
it makes them crazy with love.
I make men dream,
it makes them crazy with love
Night and day, night and day, forever
crazy with love, crazy with love.
 
  • 1. "émoustiller" is "to arouse (lightly)" but applied to oneself it sounds a bit strange to me. That's probably Canadian French.
  • 2. A spoken shortening of "qui est-ce que tu es ?" (who are you?). That must be Canadian French, it would sound unusual in France.
  • 3. "en arracher" is Canadian French, you won't hear that in France.
  • 4. The song is from 1990 apparently, and all the famous "Baby Lily"s I could find are more recent, so I have no idea who she's talking about. Must be a Canadian reference I'm missing.
