Graine de BeautÚ Lyrics

Lyrics


dans le creux de ma main
il y a trois chemins
j'ai pris celui du milieu
┴a sentait bon la lavande
que je venais de toucher
┴a sentait m═me la pomme
que je venais de manger
et ┴a sentait le baiser
que ma maman avait pos╚
avant d'aller travailler

dans le creux de ma main
un p'tit grain a pouss╚
on l'appelle 'grain de beaut╚'

dans le creux de ma main
il y a trois chemins
j'ai pris celui du milieu
translation
"beauty spot"
in the hollow of my hand
there are three ways
I took the middle one
it smelt much like the lavender
that I had just touched
it even smelt like the apple
that I had just eaten
and it smelt like the kiss
that my mummy had dropped
before going to work

in the hollow of my hand
a little grain has grown
we call it 'beauty spot'

in the hollow of my hand
there are three ways
I took the middle one
Notes
transcription and translation by electrophone
The title is a pun, a play on words with "grain de beaut╚" (beauty spot) and "reine de beaut╚" (beauty queen). Literally, "graine de beaut╚" could be translated as "seed of beauty".
