Intoxicated Man

I drink1
Too strong a dose
I see
Pink elephants
Spiders on the shirt
Of my tuxedo
Bats on the ceiling2
In the living
Room
 
Hey you
Tell me something
Are you there
Like pink marble
As icy as the shirt
Of my tuxedo
As pale as the ceiling
In the living
Room
 
Love
Doesn't really interest me anymore
Still
Those spiders on the shirt
Of my tuxedo
Those bats on the ceiling
In the living
Room

Hey you
Tell me something
Are you there
Like pink marble
As icy as the shirt
Of my tuxedo
As pale as the ceiling
In the living
Room
Je bois
A trop forte dose
Je vois
Des éléphants roses
Des araignées sur le plastron
D'mon smoking
Des chauves-souris au plafond
Du living-
Room

Eh toi
Dis-moi quelque chose
Tu es là
Comme un marbre rose
Aussi glacé que le plastron
D'mon smoking
Aussi pâle que le plafond
Du living-
Room

L'amour
Ne m'dit plus grand'chose
Toujours
Ces araignées sur le plastron
D'mon smoking
Ces chauves-souris au plafond
Du living-
Room

Eh toi
Dis-moi quelque chose
Tu es là
Comme un marbre rose
Aussi glacé que le plastron
D'mon smoking
Aussi pâle que le plafond
Du living-
Room

1 Same first line as the Boris Vian song "Je bois"
2 Chauves-souris au plafond - Equivilant to the English "bats in the belfrey"
