Voici la French Brexit song !

On en a entendu et on en entend encore parler du Brexit, mais la France n’a pas dit son dernier mot et certains s’en amuse même.

Imaginez si la France reprenait son « français » aux anglais… Et bien voilà ce que propose Amanda Palmer, Sarah-Louise Young et Maxim Melton via La French Brexit Song, une petite folie bien amusante à écouter et à regarder.

Oh England, you broke our heart 
When you first voted to depart 
But before you off and pack, one thing 
We want our language back 

Oh England, you went your way 
But for this exit you will pay 
Without French letters you’ll be lost 
It’s time for you to count la cost 

No you can’t have joie de vivre without le français 
You’ll lose yourself without our cul-de-sac 
There is no fizz without champagne 
Though you can gladly keep your rain 
We’re taking all our French words back 

No, you cannot drive a car without a chauffeur 
There’s no déjà-vu without déjà vu 
What’s sex without its lingerie? 
Piers Morgan without his toupée 
We really feel miserable for you 

Oh England, you’re such a fool 
Did they teach you nothing at school 
With politics you’ve been risqué 
For Brexit is just an entrée 

Yes England, this is the start 
Of picking allies à la carte 
Soon the whole world will turn on you 
It isn’t nice, but it is true 

Cause you cannot rendez-vous without le francais 
So many things that you will sorely miss 
Like etiquette and ambulance 
Without us you don’t stand a chance 
You’ll die without our life saving French kiss 

Key change! 

No you can’t have marriage without fiancé 
Without us your soufflé will never rise 
Don’t bother to RSVP 
We’ve buggered off for après ski 
You didn’t get an invite, quelle surprise 

Your cheeseboard will be blue without 
Roquefort and camembert 
When you can’t find the menu 
You won’t, because it isn’t there 
When you smell of faint regret 
Instead of fine eau de cologne 
You only have yourselves to blame 
For dining all alone 

No you can’t eat à la mode without le francais 
You’ll have to scoff it all off one big plate 
Alas there will be no encore 
Now that you’ve bolted your back door 
For a referendum you will have to wait 

And if you want our bel esprit 
I’m sorry darling, c’est la vie 
You should have voted stay, it is too late 
Yes, you should have voted stay it is too late
