Translation of Les Bourgeois from French to English

With a warm heart
Eyes in the beer
At big Adrienne de Montalant's
With friend Jojo
And with friend Pierre
We went to drink our twenties
Jojo thought he was Voltaire
And Pierre thought he was Casanova
And me, me who was the proudest
Me, I thought I was me
And when the notaries passed by around midnight
Who came out of the "Three Pheasants" hotel
We showed them our ass and our good manners
By singing to them

The bourgeois are like pigs
The older they get, the stupider they become
The bourgeois are like pigs
The older they get, the stupider they become

With a warm heart
Eyes in the beer
At big Adrienne de Montalant's
With friend Jojo
And with friend Pierre
We went to burn our twenties
Voltaire danced like a vicar
And Casanova dared not
And me, me who remained the proudest
Me, I was almost as drunk as me
And when the notaries passed by around midnight
Who came out of the "Three Pheasants" hotel
We showed them our ass and our good manners
By singing to them

The bourgeois are like pigs
The older they get, the stupider they become
The bourgeois are like pigs
The older they get, the stupider they become

Heart at rest
Eyes firmly on the ground
At the bar of the "Three Pheasants" hotel
With master Jojo
And with master Pierre
Between notaries, we pass the time
Jojo talks about Voltaire
And Pierre about Casanova
And me, me, me who remained the proudest, me
Me, I still talk about me
And it's when leaving around midnight, Mr. Commissioner
That every night from Montalant's
Young "comb-tails" show us their behinds
By singing to us

The bourgeois are like pigs
The older they get, the stupider they become
They say, Mr. Commissioner
The bourgeois, the older they get, the stupider they become
