Overall Meaning

Flight of the Conchords' song "Foux Da Fa Fa" is a humorous song about two friends who try to fake their way speaking French with phrases they learned from French dictionaries. The song talks about common phrases such as "Where is the library?" and "Here is my passport." throughout the song. Additionally, the song also speaks about the friends' attempts to have a conversation at a park, identify where the supermarket is and what products they can get. They also make references to public figures Gerard Depardieu and Jacque Cousteau, and various French products such as baguette, pamplemousse, and camembert.


The song's title "Foux Da Fa Fa" is not an actual French phrase but a made-up one that resembles the sound of French. The song is comically based on tourist speaking a foreign language and attempting to communicate with locals. When the characters ask where the pool is, they reference "splish splosh" as an attempt at making splash sounds.


Overall, the song is a comical interpretation of how people struggle with language barriers while traveling and attempting to communicate. The song infuses humor with repetitive faux phrases and sounds to make the listener laugh.
