Bridgitte Fontaine – Prohibition (2009)

by Fine Melodies

She is now the ultimate badass.

Lyrics (roughly):

I was showing my senior card
Under the mocking looks of those pigs
Who started an obscene laugh
At my siren shape

I am old and go fuck yourselves
With my style of dragonfly
I am old and I’m going to die
A small forgotten detail

Go your own way you bastards
Quickly go to the buffet car
I will smoke my cigarette
Quietly in the toilet

Prohibition is everywhere
Alcohol on television
Papers, fags, lack of cash
And getting old in public places

Prohibition is everywhere
Words and screams, fornication
Semen forbidden at 60 years old
Or else scandal and giggles

I am old and go fuck yourselves
With my style of dragonfly
I am old and I’m going to die
A small forgotten detail

Sick people are prohibited
Disposed of in the ditches
Unless they’re worth a dime,
Cash for the wealthiest

Old people are discarded
Put to the asylum, to the castle of oblivion
Here is what’s waiting for me tomorrow
If I ever loose my way

I have other perspectives, you see
I am going to have sex, to drink and smoke
I’m going to invent myself other skies
Always wider and more precious

I am old and go fuck yourselves
With my style of dragonfly
I am old,fearing neither god nor man
If I die, it will be of happiness
