"The centerpiece of the Mad Men Season 5 premiere is a song sung by Don Draper's young wife Megan (Jessica Paré), in full-on sex kitten mode, to Don, in front of many friends and coworkers, at his 40th birthday party. It's a catchy little number, with French lyrics (Megan is from Montreal, as is Paré). This being Mad Men, though, one has to ask: Why this song? Does it have some deeper meaning? Does it foreshadow what's to come this season"?

  • Moi je me rapelle bien que dans les années soixantes c’était la Sophia Loren qui chantait cette chanson, et en anglais, par-dessus le marché!  Voir le lien YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qZ4odDli9O4

  • Chouette!  Merci encore pour les paroles.  People like me who don't know or watch the show, but who have an interest in French and pop culture for their students, thank you enormement!

  • merci beaucoup pour les lyrics!

  • Here are the lyrics:

    Zou bisou bisou (x3)
    Zou bisou bisou, mon Dieu qu'ils sont doux

    Zou bisou bisou (x3)
    Zou bisou bisou, le bruit des bisous

    Dans les buissons sous le ciel du mois d'août
    Les amoureux glissent à pas de loup
    Comme les oiseaux ils ont rendez-vous
    On l'entend partout

    Zou bisou bisou (x3)
    Zou bisou bisou, mon Dieu qu'ils sont doux

    Mais dites-moi savez-vous, ce que veut dire entre nous,
    Ce que que veut dire "Zou bisou" ?

    Ça veut dire je vous l'avoue
    Mais oui je n'aime que vous
    Zou bisou bisou
    Zou bisou, mon Dieu que c'est doux

    Mais pas besoin des buissons du mois d'août
    Quand tu m'embrasses doucement dans le cou
    Car c'est curieux tu vois je l'avoue
    Ça me fait partout zou bisou bisou

    Zou bisou bisou des petits bisous !
