Le Bien Le Mal
Guru Lyrics


1993, Paris-Brooklyn
La puissance du son
What

It's the good, the bad
Le bien, le mal
The good, the bad
Le bien, le mal

Il était vraisemblable que tous les faux semblants
De la farce humanitaire aboutiraient au néant
C'est une boule à facettes comme dans les discothèques
Ca reflète à la lumière et sans elle, ffft! Du vent
J'aime les images fortes car je suis comme toi
Le poids des mots et le choc des photos

Ay yo, it's time to get up
Time to change the world, 'cause I'm fed up
We're gonna expose the wrong that's been going on
There's people dying in the streets still
In every city, lots of kids they be ill
I live in Brooklyn, got boys all over been
Around the world and you know that I know

The good, the bad
Le bien, le mal
The good, the bad
Le bien, le mal

L'homme qui prend le microphone se nomme Solaar
Maître de la rime urbaine accompagné des comparses et de Gangstarr
A Paris en France comme dans la Rome antique
Imite le maître, malgré le mythe comme Spartacus (limitait le mec)
Qui millimètre après millimètre check l'intellect à des kilomètres
It's your turn, Guru

Crazy madness, it's all I see out my window
It doesn't matter who's the president, yo
I hate to tell ya, but slavery is still in effect
Haven't you checked, us black folks create for ya I make a bet, if you
Don't let the truth out huh
Evil will rule without a doubt and it's

The good, the bad
Le bien, le mal
The good, the bad
Le bien, le mal

Solaar

C'est le monde des affaires, OPA sur la misère
Le réel me nargue, tralalalalère
L'air de rien je doute de l'existance des Dieux
De l'existance du mieux dans un lieu plus pieux
Alors je prends de l'avance, en prenant du recul
Car prendre du recul c'est prendre de l'élan

I come in peace, but sucka's always trying to front, so
I gotta let 'em know, gotta let 'em know
This ain't no game, punk, 'cause you could wind up dead
With bullets to the head from the posse's lead
I'm like your mentor, and this is for your benefit
So hear the noise, 'cause the rude boys ain't havin' it
It's

The good, the bad
Le bien, le mal
The good, the bad
Le bien, le mal

En prophète de la fête, je suis contre ceux qui fêtent
La défaite de la fête, alors faites attention
Cette recette intercepte les adeptes trouble-fête
Et le son, domine la situation
Le bien et le mal, situation critique
Problème politique, éthique et techniques, OK man, tout s'explique

Yeah, my man MC Solaar in the house
I'm known as the Guru, you know that
I got the whole posse: Jimmy James, Mikey Moos-Moos, Louche, Blackjack
The Mack, The Ramses, Soon-E MC, Menelik, Bambi Cruz, Planet Mars
Strike, Kéry James, Boom Bass, Zdar, Démocrates D
And their whole entire crew
You know what I'm sayin'? Taking no shorts in 1993
Peace, it's the good and the bad, and I'm out

Bad as jam!

Different Solar people. This is the French MC Solaar with two A's. Not the wack dude Solar who collaborated with Guru right before his death.

My linguistic anthropologist professor showed this in our class as an example of code switching and questioning the elements used in both the English and the French verses that make them both a part of the same speech community, despite being different languages. My professor knows the classics.

Was 16yo when it first came out (1993), and it's still dope 26 years later.
