The Lyrics

Heard a song
Cest la vie'
It has such a catchy
melody
Three French words
causing doubt
Is this what the whole song's
All about

Whatcha think it is,
what's the mystery
I don't know
what's the mystery,
Whatcha think it is
Won't someone tell me
Is it confusing
Whatcha think you hear
What is the song's
translation
Whatcha think you hear
that is confusing,

Such is life, Such is life
in case you can't speak French (Oui! Oui!)
Such is life, Such is life
in case you can't speak French (Oui! Oui!)

Gone insane
Had a fit
Are you mad because
you can't get it
Take a breath
Just calm down
Don't make your friends think
You're a clown

Whatcha think it is,
what's the mystery
I don't know
what's the mystery,
Whatcha think it is
Won't someone tell me
Is it confusing
Whatcha think you hear
What is the song's
translation
Whatcha think you hear
that is confusing,

Such is life, Such is life
in case you can't speak French (Oui! Oui!)
Such is life, Such is life
in case you can't speak French (Oui! Oui!)

Hey there JJ.
Why are you so dense
You say you're going mad
Because the song makes no sense
Say JJ.
Don't you know
When in doubt there's
Just one translation
And it's singin'

Such is life, Such is life
in case you can't speak French (Oui! Oui!)
Such is life, Such is life
in case you can't speak French (Oui! Oui!)

Such is life, Such is life
in case you can't speak French (Oui! Oui!)
Such is life, Such is life
in case you can't speak French (Oui! Oui!)
