I Got the Message
Men Without Hats Lyrics


[Chorus]
I got the message and the message is clear
I really really really really wish you were here
It was written on the back of a carton d'allumettes
It says I don't really miss you but I haven't tried yet
I got the message and the message is proof
There really is a thing they call the rhythm of youth
It will pick you up and it will make you wiggle this way
Et see'est facile a dire and it's easy to say
Well it's mine (They got this thing they call the rhythm of life)
Not Yours (It says to settle down and get a dog and a wife)
Get down (And everybody's doing it all over the land)
On all fours (Et oui je ne comprends pas oh yes I don't understand)
It's long (I got the message and the message is clear)
And hard (I really really really really wish you were here)
This road (It was written on the back of a carton d'allumettes)
To mars (I don't really miss you but I haven't tried yet)

Got a good thing, yeah, got you going
Everybody's moving, watch out it's showing
I have done a good thing I've got you dancing, everybody's happy
I have done a good thing, I've got you moving, everybody's dancing
They're really grooving
I have done a good thing don't dansez moderne
Everybody's happy

[Chorus]

See'est mon (They got this thing they call the rhythm of life)
See'est toi (It says to settle down and get a dog and a wife)
See'est nous (And everybody's doing it all over the land)
See'est cool (Et oui je ne comprends pas oh yes I don't understand)
See'est long (i got the message and the message is clear)
See'est dur (i really really really really wish you were here)
Frappons (it was written on the back of a carton d'allumettes)
Nos tetes contre les murs

Me, you, us cool, long, hard, hit our heads against the wall

(I don't really miss you but I haven't tried yet)

I got a good thing yeah, got you going
Everybody's moving, it's really showing
I have done a good thing I've got you dancing, everybody's happy
I have done a good thing, I've got you moving, everybody's dancing,
It's really groovy
I have done a good thing, don't dansez moderne
And Everybody's happy

[Chorus]

It's mine (they got this thing they call the rhythm of life)
Not Yours (it says to settle down and get a dog and a wife)
Get down (and everybody's doing it all over the land)
On all fours (et oui je ne comprends pas oh yes I don't understand)
It's long (i got the message and the message is clear)
And hard (i really really really really wish you were here)
This road (it was written on the back of a carton d'allumettes)
Road to mars (I don't really miss you but I haven't tried yet)

L'esprit 80-90s

Thanks!
Precision:
In french, it's "c'est" not "see'est". 😁

sha11235

Thanks for the lyrics, since some of this shit I don't understand since it is French.

Ol' Dirty Dasher

Only way to kick off a 80s quarantine dance party!!

James

Cool song.

Cowguy789

This song is much better than Safety Dance. I mean I love Safety Dance, but no one has heard this song and it's amazing.

Matt Belinski

I always thought this should have been the follow up single instead of the crappy “I Like”.

THERealRibbitBartono

I agree only found this song by the extended version of safety dance.
Safety Dance does go hard and is the quintessential 80s song though

Ines Collins

I heard this song in the 80's and I used to dance to it, because I got the message loud and clear, because I was part of the "rhythm of youth". 😉

Stefan Reich

It is amazing
