MOUTON BERCAIL

J'en ai fait des hôtels et des caves.
J'en ai perdu du temps.
J'en ai fait des chiottes et des rades.
J'en ai bavé du sang.
J'en ai fait des pas mûres, des bêtises.
J'en ai fait des serments.
j'en ai fait...
et j'en ferai encore.
Je suis comme ça.
Je ne changerai pas.

Je m'en suis fait du mal.
J'ai battu les records.
J'en ai fait des écoles et des styles,
des méthodes et du tort.
J'ai juré c'est fini, c'est final.
J'ai juré sur ma tête et ton corps.
J’ai juré, juré, juré...
et je vous jure encore.
Je suis comme ça.
Je ne changerai pas.
Je vous le jure encore.
Oui, je vous jure encore.
Je suis comme ça.
Je ne changerai pas.

J'en ai fait des faux-bonds, des détours,
tout caché sous le vent.
J'en ai fait des séjours, des mystères,
des erreurs et semblant.
J'en ai pris des claques et des retours.
J'y ai cru un moment.
J'y ai cru, j'y ai cru...
et j'y croirai encore.
Je suis sûre de ça.
Je n'en guérirai pas
et j'y croirai encore
et j'en ferai encore.
Je ne changerai pas,
changerai pas comme ça
et j'en ferai encore, encore, encore, encore.

MOUTON BERCAIL
(english transl.)

Done so many motels and basements.
I've wasted so much time.
Done so many dumps and shitholes.
I've drooled so much blood.
Done so many fucked-up, stupid things.
I've made so many promises.
Done did...
and I will do it again.
I am like that.
I will not change.

Done so much harm to myself,
I've broken all records.
Done so many schools and styles,
so many methods and so much wrong.
I've sworn it's over, it's final.
Sworn it on my head and your body.
I've sworn, sworn, sworn...
and I’ll swear it again.
I am like that.
I will not change.
I’ll swear again.
Yes, I’ll swear it again.
I am like that.
I will not change.

Done so many false starts, shortcuts,
I hid it all under the wind.
Done so many stays, mysteries,
mistakes and counterfeits.
Took so many slaps and hits.
I believed it for a bit.
I believed it...
and I will believe it again.
I am sure of that.
I won't get cured of it
and I will believe it again
and I will do it again.
I will not change,
will not change just like that
and I will do it
again, again, again, again.
