Be Pretty : A Lyric in Search of a Song

Ma maman m’a dit
Sois poli si tu n’es pas joli
But, mom, why behave
When there’s Revlon and Loreal

Be pretty if you’re not polite
Dress well if you’re not nice

Gimme Gimme Gimme
Comme des Garçons et Mizrahi
I want I want I want
Jean-Paul Gaultier Yves St-Laurent

Vilaine comme un singe
Je m’habille toujours comme un archange
I may be foul-mouthed
Who gives a fuck if I’m well turned-out

Be pretty if you’re not polite
Dress well if you’re not nice

Gimme Gimme Gimme
Comme des Garçons et Mizrahi
I want I want I want
Jean-Paul Gaultier Yves St-Laurent

Depth Charge: A search on my hard drives dragged this 20-year-old lyric to the surface, the corpse of a man from a completely forgotten murder.
