lyrics

Malcontente

When I was a little girl
Mama said to me
Your eyes are wet
Your hair is wild
La Poule you’re not happy

When I was a tiny chick
She asked what do you want?
I said the only life I’d pick
Is to be a Malcontente

Malcontente, Malcontente
Why must there be laughter
Why must we be so gay?
Malcontente, Malcontente
Happy every after
Makes me depressive every day

(Malcontente, Malcontente)

When I was a troubled kid
They told me I was mad
Friends said “La Poule
You are morbid”
Why is that so bad?

When I was a flapping bird
My song was very strange
My teachers said “you sound absurd
You really have to change”

Malcontente, Malcontente
Why must there be laughter
Why must we be so gay?
Malcontente, Malcontente
There is nothing dafter
Makes me depressive every day

(Malcontente, Malcontente)

Now that age has stoked my fire
I live the life I want
The only thing that I desire
Is to be a Malcontente

To all Les Miserables
I give this rousing song
If life’s not formidable
It’s time to sing along/then why is that so wrong?

Malcontente, Malcontente
Why must there be laughter
Why must we be so gay?
Malcontente, Malcontente
Sing it from the rafter
Happiness is un cliche

Malcontente, Malcontente
Why must there be laughter
Why must we be so gay?
Malcontente, Malcontente
I should win a BAFTA
My life is a tragic play
We don’t have to be so gay
Live your life your own depressive way

(Malcontente, Malcontente, Malcontente)
