The two lines of French are courtesy of Julie Gros of Le SuperHomard. They translate as:Do we have to go all the way?

Asked by Rolling Stone
about the significance of the French lyrics, Weller replied: "When I did my vocal I was thinking it would be great if we could have a few lines of the song in French. I have no idea why I thought that. I thought it would sound musically good. There was no other significance."
