Gentleman
Fela Kuti Lyrics


À toutes les ladies, oh yeah

Laisse-moi te conter l'histoire
De la fille de l'autre soir
Elle me plaît mais j'avoue
Qu'entre elle et moi tout est flou
Saurait-elle deviner
C'est sur elle que j'ai tout misé
Alors j'y crois j'baisse pas les bras
Je ne la veux que pour moi

On s'est promis de s'attendre
Un gentleman sait comprendre
oh, oh, oh, oh amicalement vôtre
Et je ne saurais résister
Quand ce corps sait m'appeler
Oh, oh, oh amoureusement

Eh là! C'est toi que je vise
Eh là! Je suis sous l'emprise
My love! Laisse-moi te dire
Tout ce qu'il y a au fond de moi
La, la, la, my love!
Comme ça je t'appelle
My love! Je sens l'étincelle
Eh là! Mon corps qui s'embrase, reste là
La, la, la, la, la, my love!

Quels sont mes torts
À désirer si fort?
Un souffle de toi
Me fait dire encore
Je veux donner un vrai sens à l'amour
Qu'il doit prendre sa place entre nous

On s'est promis de s'attendre
Un gentleman sait comprendre
Oh, oh, oh, oh, amicalement vôtre
Et je ne saurais résister
Quand ce corps sait m'appeler
Oh, oh, oh, amoureusement

Eh là! C'est toi que je vise
Eh là! Je suis sous l'emprise
My love! Laisse-moi te dire
Tout ce qu'il y a au fond de moi
La, la, la, my love! Comme ça je t'appelle
My love! Je sens l'étincelle
Eh là! Mon corps qui s'embrase, reste là
La, la, la, la, la my love!

J'ai reçu un texto
En lisant chaque mot
Une possibilité
M'est enfin accordée
Avant ça il faudra
Encore rester de glace
Devant cet enchantement
Perturbant mon existence

On s'est promis de s'attendre
Un gentleman sait comprendre
Oh, oh, oh, oh amicalement votre
Et je ne saurais résister
Quand ce corps sait m'appeler
Oh, oh, oh, amoureusement

Eh là! C'est toi que je vise
Eh là! Je suis sous l'emprise
My love! Laisse-moi te dire
Tout ce qu'il y a au fond de moi
La, la, la, my love! Comme ça je t'appelle
My love! Je sens l'étincelle
Eh là! Mon corps qui s'embrase, reste là
La, la, la, la, la my love!

Prends le temps c'est c'qu'il nous faut
Puis-je trouver les bon mots
Mes pensées iront droit vers toi
Oh, oh, oh
Tu es celle que mon cœur
A choisi t'es ma girl
Hâte-toi d'appeler, tu es ma lady

You chop small, you say you belly full
You say you be gentleman
You go hungry
You go suffer
You go quench

Him put him pant, him put him singlet
Him put him trouser, him put him shirt
Him put him tie, him put him coat
Him come cover all with him hat

Him go smell like shit
Him go piss for body, him no go know
Me I no be gentleman like that

[Chorus]
I no be gentleman at all o!

I be Africa man original

When i was younger around 14 , I went to an event with my mom in lagos,i was served fried rice and chicken also given fork and knife, I will be sincere I didn't know how to use fork and knife to eat even now, anyways everyone was eating with fork and knife so I tried to emulate them,damn I couldn't do it until lots of time was wasted on that and we had to leave the party, I tried to copy others when I should have just grabbed the stuff and tear it with my teeth but I tried to be a gentleman and went home hungry. Perfect explanation for what the music is about. Just be yourself and don't try to emulate western cultures at the expense of yours.
