Alors on Danse Lyrics

Alors on
Alors on
Alors on

Qui dit étude dit travail
Qui dit taf te dit les thunes
Qui dit argent dit dépenses
Et qui dit crédit dit créance
Qui dit dette te dit huissier
Et lui dit assis dans la merde
Qui dit amour dit les gosses
Dit toujours et dit divorce

Qui dit proches te dit deuils
Car les problèmes ne viennent pas seuls
Qui dit crise te dit monde
Dit famine, dit tiers-monde
Et qui dit fatigue dit réveil
Encore sourd de la veille
Alors on sort pour oublier tous les problèmes

Alors on danse
Alors on danse
Alors on danse
Alors on danse
Alors on danse
Alors on danse
Alors on danse
Alors on danse
Alors on danse

Et là tu te dis que c’est fini
Car pire que ça ce serait la mort
Quand tu crois enfin que tu t’en sors
Quand y en a plus et ben y en a encore

Est-ce la zik ou les problèmes?
Les problèmes ou bien la musique
Ça te prend les tripes, ça te prend la tête
Et puis tu pries pour que ça s’arrête
Mais c’est ton corps, c’est pas le ciel
Alors tu te bouches plus les oreilles
Et là tu cries encore plus fort
Et ça persiste
Alors on chante

La-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la
Alors on chante
La-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la
Alors on chante

Alors on chante

Et puis seulement quand c’est fini

Alors on danse
Alors on danse
Alors on danse
Alors on danse
Alors on danse
Alors on danse
Alors on danse
Alors on danse

Et ben y en a encore

Et ben y en a encore

Et ben y en a encore

Et ben y en a encore

Et ben y en a encore

Q7. What Does la Cadette Mean in English?

La cadette is a birth order term. By definition, la cadette, isgirl–because cadette is femininethat comes after an older sibling.

La cadette is therefore, the younger sister. This younger sister could be a middle child or the last born, but definitely not a first born. 

La cadette can also be used in a figurative sense between two people who are not related to mean a woman who is younger than the other person.

And now to my original post:

I first heard of Coller La Petite in a Whatsapp message from a childhood friend.

I checked it out, and it’s been a love story ever since!

Immediately, I had questions about parts of the song, though, and headed online to look for its lyrics.

Although I could find them online, I couldn’t find a translation for some of the more difficult to understand words for non-Camfranglais speakers.

For instance, what is a ndjoka or what does Franko use sanga la petite meaning? (Having grown up in the Ivory Coast, I already knew what la petite meant, but those of you who speak more standard French might be wondering: what does Franko use la petite meaning?)  

I eventually got the answers I was looking for but had to search far and wide for them.

I wrote this post so that you wouldn’t have to go through the same trouble I did.

One of the things that I like most about this song is its lyrics.

In Camfranglais, Cameroonian colloquial speak, Coller La Petite tells the story of many, many nights of partying like I have known them over the years.

For those English speakers out there who may be wondering what Coller la Petite is all about, this post is for you.
