Medine – Bataclan (English lyrics)

1st verse :
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the entertainment business
Where rap CDs are only used to stall wobbling armoires
I like it better when there’s no seats
Half-open the curtains from backstage
In order to see if the gauge is full
I’ve got a knot in my stomach the size of a watermelon
I saw the Saian supa crew on stage, at the XXL festival
Before that, the 2Bal 2Neg
I told myself that on the scene, I had to be excellent
My first concert was on the steps of my street
My first stage costume was my scream mask
Francois premier room, we killed it that day
I always talk about it before I go on tour
And after each tour, my heart starts to feel like Ibiza during winter
Even if sometimes they would only talk about my performance in the “miscellaneous news” section
A big smack to all the concert rooms that didn’t let all the debates get to them
The piano will never assassinate the pianist, even if he doesn’t like music
Back when I didn’t know about the intermittent status
When poverty was my full time job
There was only one thing that would manage to turn my pain into patience
The only thing that I wanted, was to perform at Le Bataclan

Chorus :
Le Bataclan
The only thing that I wanted, was to perform at Le Bataclan
Le Bataclan
The only thing that I wanted, was to perform at Le Bataclan
Le Bataclan
The only thing that I wanted, was to perform at Le Bataclan

2nd verse :
Escorted by the forces of clamor
A concert room that burns is like a whole era that dies
When the Elysée-Montmartre went up in flames
I think that was like my World trade Center moment
The rapper’s Mecca, 72, boulevard Rochechouart
In less than a quarter hour, all the MC probably started seeing red
And tonight, I like it when the scene is Rococo
When there’s screams from the balconies like a bunch of Rototos
Tower the world like the Toronto’s Tower
It makes me happy like Totoro
Why do we call “the pit” if there’s nothing but real fans in it ?
Why do we call it “the pit” ? I saw nothing but real fans
Just like during the riots, they sing my slogans
I never do any disappointing shows
From the Zénith to the neighbors party
Performances that freezes time
Nothing but human chains, no waiting lines
If I ever forget my lyrics, it’s the crowd that continues
I have flashbacks from when I was just a child
The only thing that I wanted, was to perform at Le Bataclan

Chorus :
Le Bataclan
The only thing that I wanted, was to perform at Le Bataclan
Le Bataclan
The only thing that I wanted, was to perform at Le Bataclan
Le Bataclan
The only thing that I wanted, was to perform at Le Bataclan
