Belle
Juliette Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Tout dans la dentelle
Tout dans la caboche
L’a?me d’une gazelle
La te?te a? Gavroche
Un jour en marcel
Les mains dans les poches
Un jour en Chanel
Grave?e sur pelloche
Fe?minin pluriel
Sans peur ni reproche
Je n’suis pas de celles
Qu’on garde sous cloche
Vaut mieux et’ belle belle belle et rebelle
Plutot que moche moche moche et remoche !

Je n’suis pas de celles
Qu’on garde sous cloche
De celles qui be?lent
Quand le loup approche
Pour voler sans ailes
Il faut qu’on s’accroche
Mettre a? ses jarretelles
La pelle et la pioche
Battre la semelle
Rouler des galoches
Prendre des gamelles
Et quelques taloches
Vaut mieux et’ belle belle belle et rebelle
Plutot que moche moche moche et remoche !

Prendre des gamelles
Et quelques taloches
Pleurer mon rimmel
Les soirs de bamboche
Ce n’est qu’a? l’ho?tel
Que j’pose mes valoches
Je n’suis pas de celles
Qu’on garde sous cloche
Qu’on me?ne a? l’autel
Qu’on tient par un mioche
Toujours demoiselle
Toujours sans belle-doche
Vaut mieux et’ belle belle belle et rebelle
Plutot que moche moche moche et remoche !

Toujours demoiselle
Toujours sans belle-doche
J’veux des e?tincelles
Et des anicroches
Je n’suis pas de celles
Que l’temps effiloche
J’attends pas l’de?gel
Pour faire mon cinoche
Foutre le bordel
Prendre la Bastoche
Battre l’Eternel
Avec ma quinte flush




Vaut mieux et’ belle belle belle et rebelle
Plutot que moche moche moche et remoche !
