Madame Monsieur- ‘Mercy’ (France) Lyrics

Je suis née ce matin,
je m’appelle Mercy,
au milieu de la mer
entre deux pays, Mercy.
C’était un long chemin et Maman l’a pris.
Elle m’avait dans la peau, huit mois et demi.
Oh oui, huit mois et demi.
On a quitté la maison, c’était la guerre.
Sûr qu’elle avait raison, y avait rien à perdre.
Oh non, excepté la vie.
Je suis née ce matin,
je m’appelle Mercy.
On m’a tendu la main
et je suis en vie.
Je suis tous ces enfants
que la mer a pris.
Je vivrai cent-mille ans.
Je m’appelle Mercy.
Et là devant nos yeux y avait l’ennemie,
une immensité bleue peut-être infinie,
mais oui, on en connaissait le prix.
Surgissant d’une vague, un navire ami
a redonné sa chance à notre survie.
C’est là que j’ai poussé mon premier cri.
Je suis née ce matin.
Je m’appelle Mercy.
On m’a tendu la main
et je suis en vie.
Je suis tous ces enfants
que la mer a pris.
Je vivrai cent-mille ans.
Je m’appelle Mercy.
Je suis née ce matin.
Je m’appelle Mercy.
Merci, merci, je vais bien merci.
Merci, merci, je vais bien merci.
Merci, merci, je vais bien merci.
Merci, merci, je vais bien merci.

Madame Monsieur- ‘Mercy’ (English Translation) Lyrics

I was born this morning
My name is Mercy
Far out at sea
Between two countries, Mercy

It was a long path and Mum walked it
She had me in her skin, eight and a half months
Oh yes, eight and a half months

We left home, it was at war
Sure she had it right, there was nothing to lose
Oh no, apart from life

I was born this morning
My name is Mercy
They lent me a hand
And I am alive
I am all of those children
Whom the sea took away
I’ll live one hundred thousand years
My name is Mercy

And there, before our eyes, was the enemy
A blue immensity, perhaps infinite
But yes, we knew the price of it

Arising from a wave, a friendly ship
Gave its chance back to our survival
And it’s here that I let out my first cry

I was born this morning
My name is Mercy
They lent me a hand
And I am alive
I am all of those children
Whom the sea took away
I’ll live one hundred thousand years
My name is Mercy

I was born this morning
My name is Mercy

Thanks, thanks, I’m alright thanks
Thanks, thanks, I’m alright thanks
Thanks, thanks, I’m alright thanks
Thanks, thanks, I’m alright thanks
