hôtel nôtre-dame-rivoli, paris, october 1998

lyrics

not a single word
not a single sound around
not a day goes by
where i can see the sky so high

so i push myself into the night
but i’m deaf and dumb and i can hardly see
i’m darkness pretending to be light
nobody makes a monkey out of me

i don’t have the time to sit around and whine
oh woe is me
i can hardly wait, i won’t hesitate
and i won’t ever sleep

‘cause her breathing’s like a symphony
i was deaf and dumb and blind but now i see
there’s something happening to me
i’m hearing bells, i’m hearing bells…

DING! DANG! DONG!
all night long
my baby’s ringing bells inside of me
DING! DANG! DONG!
sings the song
ring the bells! ring the bells! ring the bells!

dans la pluie, la nuit, la pluie de ma vie
dans la nuit, ci-git Paris
dans le temps que l’on prend
de plonger dans le vent
je plonge dans le sang de ma vie

well i’ll never speak such crap again
my monkey made a baby out of me
no i’ll never feel that way again
‘cause my baby made a monkey out of me
she really made a monkey out of me…

DING! DANG! DONG!
go my cells
she’s busy ringing bells inside of me
DING! DANG! DONG!
my heart yells
ring the bells! ring the bells! ring the bells!

DING! DANG! DONG!
all night long
all my cells ring like bells inside of me
DING! DANG! DONG!
sings the song
ring the bells! ring the bells! ring the bells!
