Bourgeois

Album: Bankrupt! (2013)
  • Darling you never know
    It started years ago
    When you're less than kind of done
    An adolescent singin' out real loud
    Some wild English tune:
    "Sha-la-la-la"
    Sha la la la la la la
    La la la la la la la la
    We'll never talk it out this time
    You'll learn from all of us
    When your time's up

    How it all began
    Seriously dumb
    When you're less than kind of certain
    An adolescent calling out real loud
    It's what singers do
    Sing sha la la la la la la
    La la la la la la la la
    We'll never talk it out this time
    You'll learn from all of us
    When your time's up

    Bet your life on a cruise ship
    Bartending crucial lies
    We're destined, wise and we socialize

    Bourgeois, why would you care for more?
    They give you almost everything
    You believe almost anything
    Bourgeois, you're fire's a false alarm
    They give you almost everything
    You believed almost anything

    Darling you never know
    Darling you never know
    When you're less than kind of done
    Adolescence's looking at you now
    Like foreign legions do
    Sing sha la la la la la la
    La la la la la la la la
    We'll never talk it out this time
    You'll learn from all of us
    When your time's up

    You lost your mind on a cruise ship
    Bartending crucial lies
    We're destined, wise and we socialize

    Bourgeois
    Why would you care for more?
    They gave you almost everything
    You believed almost anything
    Bourgeois
    Your fire's a false alarm
    They gave you almost everything
    You believed almost anything

    Bourgeois
    Why would you care for more?
    They gave you almost everything
    You believed almost anything
    Bourgeois
    Your fire's a false alarm
    They gave you almost everything
    You believed almost anything Writer/s: CHRISTIAN MAZZALAI, FREDERIC MOULIN, LAURENT MAZZALAI, THOMAS CROQUET
