  • Alors quoi, on va coucher dehors
    Sous les ponts, sous des ponts d'or
    Que d'autres auront construits pour aller de leur cuisine
    A leur living...

    Leur living room
    C'est pas du flan, c'est pas du vent
    C'est le living room des vieux singes savants
    Living, living, living, living room...
