lyrics

Il faut qu' tout l' monde mange ici-bas !
C'est-y pas vrai ?
C'est-y pas vrai ?
Everyone one of us down here must be fed
It's true what I say and the Grand Banks are vast

We signed up to toil on the sea
It’s true what I say!
It’s true what I say!
Cos on land we’ve got younguns to feed
It's true what I say and the Grand Banks are vast

Des fois l'un d'nous tombe dans la mer
C’est comme dans une grande gueule affamée

There’s no sense in shedding a tear
Them fishes deserve their fair share

Les ceusses qui restent après ça,
S' mettent à pêcher ces poissons-là

We’ll fish till we’ve till broken our backs
So the agent on land can get fat

Il faut qu' tout l' monde mange ici-bas
Y a qu' nos petiots qui ne mangent pas

If we make land with nothing to sell
Then the young uns have nothing as well

Alors, qu'est-ce qu'on va foutre là-bas ?
What the hell are we gonna do now

On va pêcher avec not' coeur
So the agent on land can get fat
It's true what I say and the Grand Banks are vast
