Bongo Bong
Manu Chao Lyrics


Mama was queen of the mambo
Papa was king of the Congo
Deep down in the jungle
I started bangin' my first bongo

Every monkey like to be
In my place instead of me
'Cause I'm the king of bongo, baby
I'm the king of bongo bong
I went to the big town
Where there is a lot of sound
From the jungle to the city
Looking for a bigger crown

So I play my boogie
For the people of big city
But they don't go crazy
When I'm bangin' in my boogie

I'm the "king of the bongo, king of the bongo bong"
Hear me when I come, baby
King of the bongo, king of the bongo bong

Nobody like to be in my place instead of me
'Cause nobody go crazy when I'm bangin' on my boogie

I'm a king without a crown
Hanging loose in a big town
But I'm the king of bongo, baby
I'm the king of bongo bong

(King of the bongo, king of the bongo bong)
Hear me when I come, baby
(King of the bongo, king of the bongo bong)
Hear me when I come

They say that I'm a clown
Making too much dirty sound
They say there is no place for little monkey in this town

Nobody'd like to be in my place instead of me
'Cause nobody go crazy when I'm bangin' on my boogie
I'm the

(King of the bongo, king of the bongo bong)
Hear me when I come, baby
(King of the bongo, king of the bongo bong)
Hear me when I come

Bangin' on my bongo all that swing belongs to me
I'm so happy there's nobody in my place instead of me

I'm a king without a crown
Hanging loose in a big town
I'm the king of bongo, baby
I'm the king of bongo bong

(King of the bongo, king of the bongo bong)
Hear me when I come, baby
(King of the bongo, king of the bongo bong)
Hear me when I come

Mama was queen of the mambo
Papa was king of the Congo
Deep down in the jungle
I start bangin' my first bongo

Every monkey like to be
In my place instead of me
'Cause I'm the king of bongo, baby
I'm the king of bongo bong

Hear me when I come
Hear me when I come, baby
Hear me when I come

Je ne t'aime plus
Mon amour
Je ne t'aime plus
Tous les jours
Parfois j'aimerais mourir
Tellement j'ai voulu croire
Parfois j'aimerais mourir
Pour ne plus rien avoir
Parfois j'aimerais mourir
Pour plus jamais te voir
Je ne j'aime plus
Mon amour
Je ne t'aime plus
Tous les jours
Parfois j'aimerais mourir
Tellement Y'a plus d'espoir
Parfois j'aimerais mourir
Pour plus jamais te revoir
Parfois j'aimeris mourir
Pour ne plus rien savoir
Je ne t'aime plus
Mon amour
Je ne t'aime plus
Tous les jours...

The ending of the song always strikes me somehow, because it's happy sounding song but the french lyrics are not:
Je ne t’aime plus mon amour
Je ne t’aime plus tous les jours
Je ne t’aime plus mon amour
Je ne t’aime plus tous les jours

Parfois j’aimerais mourir, tellement j’ai voulu croire
parfois j’aimerais mourir, pour ne plus rien avoir
parfois j’aimerais mourir, por plus jamais te voir

parfois j’aimerais mourir, tellement y’a plus d’espoir
parfois j’aimerais mourir, por plus jamais te revoir
parfois j’aimerais mourir, por ne plus rien savoir

In english:
I don’t love you anymore, my love
I will never love you again
I don’t love you anymore, my love
I will never love you again

Sometimes I’d like to die, I really wanted to believe
Sometimes I’d like to die, so I’d have nothing
Sometimes I’d like to die, to never see you again

Sometimes I’d like to die, because there’s no hope
Sometimes I’d like to die, to never see you again
Sometimes I’d like to die, to forget everything

I've been diagnosed with schizophrenia two years ago. I thought it was normal for people to hear voices and see things that nobody else would see. I've entered hospital yesterday. I'm all alone in a room full of my thoughts. All I have is this song which reminds me of the new friends I made myself on the beach before I enter the hospital. They are everything I could have dreamt of. I know I'm not alone, and I know I have to go through this to get better. I don't care about how hard this can be, I only think about the final exit, where I'll be able to think by myself and enjoy life as it really is. :) I'm so grateful for this song to make me feel better. Please, don't stop listening to music. It is, according to me, the only way to feel surrounded. Life isn't easy, being seen as crazy isn't easy either. Sometimes you have to go through your worst phase to find your inner peace. Please don't give up. Let's try to enjoy life together.
