DA UZI – La guitare (English lyrics)

Note : DA UZI had this to say about the track : “When I arrived in the studio, I was about to go to Zanzibar the next day, which means that I was super happy.
I was like “Eh, I’m leaving tommorow, I’m about to make a dope track right now, and I’ll listen to it while I’m on the beach”.
With Boumi, we were posted up, we already had the album’s skeleton, which means that we were like : “What is missing ? What would be good ?”. He told me : “We need to come up with a theme” and after that, there was a guy that was playing his guitar, he was there, composing : “We’re gonna call it “La guitare” ! Because he was playing the guitar so well.
After that I tried to create a little story ; talking about the guitar under different aspects, and if you pay close attention, you can feel it.
When I did this track, if you listen to it and you don’t pay attention to the lyrics, it talk about guitar like everyone talk about guitar. But the guitar, it’s actually a talent, if you understand the double entendre, which means : you should really use the guitar”
We can also add that in French slang the word “guitare” also refers to a gun. In the first verse the word guitare refers to an instrument, but in the second verse it takes a darker meaning.

Intro :
La D, la D
Yeah
A few things to say real quick
Talk about the gat
Boumi’
Sometimes, you’re walking in the streets
You see guitars
You know I don’t like to do this!
Eh

1st verse :
That’s all he has left : his guitar, life is giving him lessons, you wouldn’t have recognize him before
Mais un jour où tu perds, tu vis d’un autre jour où tu perds et il s’retrouve à gratter des pièces
It’s easy to fall, getting back up is the hardest, you need to hit rock bottom more than once, it helps
I saw you defeated, I would love to see you a star please, no worries, your heart at peace
Get back up and move on, don’t make anymore misteps, use your guitar
When you’re advancing, there’s always something that blocks your projects, don’t talk about them anymore
When your heart is too good, they make fun of you, God challenges those that he loves, I saw you struggle
The sun will rise when you climb the mountain, use your guitar

Chorus :
He used to play guitar down stairs, play guitar down stairs, eh eh
Used to play guitar down stairs, play guitar down stairs, eh eh
Take the money, don’t look back, they won’t be loyal for long, I don’t think so
He used to play guitar down stairs, play guitar down stairs, eh eh

2nd verse :
Always pissed off, in the heart of the fire, hands on the mouth, you had to pull out your gun
In order to shoot at them, those guys, murder scene, you’re puking all alone
Your feelings are in the nettles, “I’m gonna do him myself, I won’t delegate” : that sentence, I heard you say it too many times
When things are shitty, as soon as there’s blood, the gun remove your friends
La guitare, elle t’a guidé jusqu’au [poignet ?] au retour, j’viens des Trois Tours à côté d’nos [?]
We want to kill each other, sometimes we’ll miss, a bandit’s destiny like the Savastano
Brave like Thanos, Ketama hash, I believe in brave guys, why am I this way ?
I want to see my mother in Gucci, smiling, that’s why, I don’t don’t pull my gun out

Chorus :
He used to play guitar down stairs, play guitar down stairs, eh eh
Used to play guitar down stairs, play guitar down stairs, eh eh
Take the money, don’t look back, they won’t be loyal for long, I don’t think so
He used to play guitar down stairs, play guitar down stairs, eh eh

Bridge :
And in the street, we all have the same stories, that’s weird
And when I make dirty money, there’s 300 more people who curse me
Business owner, I swear on my mother, I didn’t even graduate high school
Don’t believe what people say, respect your elders, the others, pull out your guitar at them

Chorus :
He used to play guitar down stairs, play guitar down stairs, eh eh
Used to play guitar down stairs, play guitar down stairs, eh eh
Take the money, don’t look back, they won’t be loyal for long, I don’t think so
He used to play guitar down stairs, play guitar down stairs, eh eh
