Mc Solaar, Bouge de là !

Words about MC Solaar:

Claude M’Barali was born in Dakar, Senegal to parents of Chadian origin. When he was six months old his parents immigrated to France where they eventually settled in the Paris suburb of Villeneuve-Saint-Georges. He studied languages at the Jussieu university campus and was a post-graduate in philosophy. He released his first single in 1990.

Music:

In summer 1991, Solaar and his friend Jimmy Jay went in Paris in hopes of succeeding in the music industry and released his first single, Bouge de là (“Move out of My Way”). It’s very important to know that Solaar is the first rapper to be commercially known in France. He opened so many doors to the rappers and hip hop/RNB singers of today. Solaar is one of the most internationally popular and influential French rappers and his song “La Belle et le bad boy” (translate The Beauty and the bad boy) is featured in the last episode of Sex in the city showing that he is part of the French music culture.

Lyrics and Music by Jimmy Jay and Mc Solaar

Paroles:

Tout a commencé là-bas, dans la ville qu’on appelle Maisons-Alfort
Quand je vois une fatma chelou qui fait bouger son corps
Elle me dit: “Claude M.C., viens là qu’j’te donne du réconfort.”
J’ai dit: “Non-merci, c’est très gentil mais je n’mange pas d’porc…”
Elle m’a fait:

“Bouge de là. Bouge, bouge de là. Bouge, bouge, bouge de là.”

J’continue mon trajet, j’arrive vers la Gare de Lyon
Quand je vois un gars qui se dit vraiment très fort comme un lion
Il me dit: “Claude M.C., est-ce que tu veux qu’on s’boxe ?”
Ses hématomes étaient plus gros qu’les seins de Samantha Fox !
Il m’a fait:

“Bouge de là. Bouge, bouge de là. Bouge, bouge, bouge de là.”

Ma voisine de palier, elle s’appelle Cassandre,
Elle a un petit chien qu’elle appelle Alexandre.
Elle me dit: “Claude M.C., est-ce que tu peux le descendre ?”
J’ai pris mon Magnum, j’ai dû mal comprendre.
Elle m’a fait:

“Bouge de là. Bouge, bouge de là. Bouge, bouge, bouge de là.”

Directement, j’suis allé chez Lucie,
Qui aime les chiens, les chats et Trente Millions d’Amis.
Elle me dit: “T’aimes les animaux, toi mon super M.C. ?”
J’ai dit: “oui j’adore, avec du sel et bien cuits !”
Elle m’a fait:

“Bouge de là. Bouge, bouge de là. Bouge, bouge, bouge de là.”

Plus tard, dans le métro y a un charclo qui traîne,
Il me raconte toute sa vie, il me dit qu’il vient de Rennes.
Ensuite, il me dit qu’il pue, qu’il faudrait qu’il se baigne…
J’lui dis: “Jette-toi dans l’égout, t’arrives direct dans la Seine !”
Il m’a fait:

“Bouge de là. Bouge, bouge de là. Bouge, bouge, bouge de là.”

J’continue mon trajet, j’arrive vers le boul’vard Barbès
Quand j’vois un de mes amis qui venait de Marrakech
Il me dit: “Arwah, arwah, j’t’achète des rap en dinars.”
J’ai dit: “Non, je veux des dollars car on m’appelle Solaar.”
Il m’a fait:

“Bouge de là. Bouge, bouge de là. Bouge, bouge, bouge de là.”

Alors, j’ai bougé; j’ai dû m’en aller, partir, bifurquer,
J’ai dû m’évader, j’ai dû m’enfuir, j’ai dû partir, j’ai dû m’éclipser,
J’ai dû me camoufler, j’ai dû disparaître… Pour réapparaître.

Oh ! Oh ! Bouge de là.
Bouge de là.

Move Out of My Way, Move Out of My Way, Move Out of My Way. Move Out of My Way. Move Out of My Way

Everything has started over there, in the town which is called Maisons-Alfort
When I see a weird fatma who moves her body

She says:”Mc Solaar come over here that I give you some comfort ”
I said: ” No thanks, it is really nice from you but I don’t eat pork ”
She told me: ” Move Out of My Way, Move Out of My Way, Move out of my way”

I continue my journey and reach Lyon station when I see a bloke who claims to be as strong like a lion
He says to me:  Claude MC, do you want us to box? ”
His bruises were bigger than Samantha Fox’s breasts
He told me: ” Move out of My Way, Move out of My Way, Move out of My Way, Move Out of My Way”

My doorstep neighbour called Cassandre
She owns a little dog that she named Alexandre
She says to me: ” Claude MC can you walk him ”
(pun: the actual verb used it “to descend” in FR, “descendre”, i.e. take the dog downstairs in order to walk it, double meaning, “descendre” can also mean to kill someone)
I took my gun, I must have misunderstood
She told me: ” Move Out of My Way, Move Out of My Way, Move Out of My Way, Move Out of My Way”

Directly, I went to Lucie’s who loves dogs, cats, and “30 millions d’amis
(30 millions d’amis used to be a French TV show broadcasted on national television about pets’ lovers)
She says to me: “do you love animals, you my super MC?”
I said to her: yes I adore them, with salt and well cooked!”
She told me: “Move Out of My Way, Move Out of My Way, Move Out of My Way, Move Out of My Way, Move Out of My Way”

Later, in the metro there is a hobo wandering,
He tells me about his whole life, he tells he’s from Rennes.

Then, he says to me that he stinks, that he needs to bathe…
I say ” throw yourself in the sewer you directly reach the Seine river ”
He told me: “Move Out of My Way, Move Out of My Way, Move out of my way”

About frenchychic

Born and raised in Paris, I am a Marketing and Sales professional. And now, I am a blogger! I used to be Australian, German and French (Parisian) and now a Londoner lady since February 2010. I love everything about France: the food, the wine, the fragrances, the designers, the music and our attitude, energy & character. My blog is not all about cosmetics nor fashion, is about what is happening in the world in a French perspective: how do we think? What do we think? Why do we thing like this? And what do we French think about YOU strangers from all over the world! It was my passion for arts, culture, international events & news, fashion that drove me into creating La French Attitude and I love every minute of it and I hope you too! Enjoy! Sté xxx
