A SONG FOR BREXIT


Click on image for a larger version

C'est une poupée qui fait non...non...non...non...
Toute la journée elle fait non...non..non...non...

Elle est tell'ment jolie
Que j'en rêve la nuit.

C'est une poupée qui fait non...non...non...non...
Toute la journée, elle fait non...non...non..non...

Personne ne lui a jamais appris
Qu'on pouvait dire oui.

Sans même écouter, elle fait non...non...non...non...
Sans même regarder, elle fait non...non...non...non...

Pourtant je donnerais ma vie
Pourqu'elle dise oui.

Mais c'est une poupée qui fait non...non...non...non...
Toute la journée elle fait non...non...non...non...

Personne ne lui a jamais appris
Que l'on peut dire oui...

Non...non...non...non...
Non...non...non...non...

Older (more mature!) readers will remember the 1960s when the boot was on the other foot and it was de Gaulle who was then saying NON to admitting the UK into the EEC (as the EU was then).

How right he was.

For those not lucky enough ever to have been “au pair” in France, below is a translation/interpretation of the song in the current context (with apologies to Michel Polnareff whose bit we hope he got in the long run.)

Mr Barnier, I say No No No No No
Always night and day I say No No No No No

I've had a sleepless night
But it will be alright
I'm able for the fight
You keep your EU shite

Mr Barnier, I say No No No No No
Always night and day I say No No No No No

I am so jollified
My hands will not be tied
We'll get our money back
And fly the Union Jack
To hell with your twelve stars
We'll make our own fine cars

Mr Barnier, I say No No No No No
Always night and day I say No No No No No

Ireland can have the North
You too, for what it's worth
With Michelle and Arlene
We don't want to be seen
We'll stay with our dear Queen
You keep Orange and Green

Mr Barnier, I say No No No No No
Always night and day I say No No No No No

You lot can go and hump
We'll stay with Mr Trump
We're staying in the pink
Leaving your lot to sink

Mr Barnier, I say No No No No No
Always night and day I say No No No No No
