English translation of “Charles est stone” from Blonde album

For the fourth English translations from the new Blonde album we have chosen Charles est stone, the 10th song on the album.

The song name is obvious word play with the famous (and crazy) The Charlestones dance, which Alizée used as modernized version during Dance avec les stars (see: Week 7 of DALS – Dance Trio), and the song follows the same not-so-serious way.

To check out earlier translations by RMJ:
01 – Blonde
02 – K.O
03 – Alcaline

Translation by RMJ Original French lyrics
Charles is high

Charles is high
What he is, what he got
When he dances in front of me
What he takes, I don’t know
To glide like he does
That smile he shows
In front of the stunned crowd
You can’t tell if he cares
Of what we think of him
He mocks everyone, oh oh
Mocks them all
Just for mocking them
He must be crazy!

Charles is high

Is it wrong, is it fine
If I don’t do it
If he’s ready, I’m far away
Let me go like that
Respond to his advances
I have difficulties to step back
Should I enter in his dance
In his bubble

Charles is high

Do you know what I got
Told Charlie to me
I, I take only life
The life to embrace
What are you waiting
I expect nothing, I’m not afraid
I’m also crazy

What? Charles is high? Eh, yes
Charles is high, oh oh
Charles is high, hey
Charles is high

Charles est stone

Charles est stone
Ce qu’il est, ce qu’il a
Quand il danse devant moi
Ce qu’il prend, je sais pas
Pour qu’il plane comme ça
Ce sourire qu’il affiche
Devant le monde ébahi
C’est vous dire s’il s’en fiche
De ce qu’on pense de lui
Il se moque de tout ohoh
Se moque de tout
Pour se moquer de tout
Faul-il être fou !

Charles est stone

Si c’est mal, si c’est bien
Si je dois faire le pas
S’il est prêt, je suis loin
De me lâcher comme ça
Répondre à ses avances
Moi je manque de recul
Dois-je entrer dans sa danse
Dans sa bulle

Charles est stone

Sais-tu ce que je prends
Me dit Charlie
Moi, je prends la vie
La vie à bras le coeur
Qu’est-ce que tu attends
J’attends rien, j’ai pas peur
Je suis aussi folle

Que Charles est stone eh oui
Charles est stone ohoh
Charles est stone hey
Charles est stone
