Dan Bern - Comme Vous Le Faites Tous

Song Lyrics

Galileo told us, this world is not the center of the universe
The sun don't go around us
We go around the sun
And the sun is actually really very small
Well we fought Galileo
Tooth and nail
And you would too
It's what you'd have to do
You would too

When you go to France
You discover that America
Is not the center of the world
They don't know Michael Jordan
They don't know Tiger Woods
And the president is a worse actor than Reagan

I drop things out of windows
I wrap things 'round my head
And you would too
It's what you'd have to do
You would--too

I went to Jaziri;
All the men were smoking out of water pipes
I asked if I could join them
Politely they refused
I'd do whatever that it took
Convert to Islam, memorize whatever book
To get that water pipe

Ce soir, je pense
Que j'irai marcher le long de la Rivere
Si je suis inspire
Je pourrai imaginer des choses magnifiques
Sinon j'observerai les filles
Comme vous le faites tous
And you would too
It's what you'd have to do
You would too

Notes:
Here is a rough translation of the last verse, which is in French:

This evening, I think
I will walk along the Rivere
If I am inspired
I will be able to imagine splendid things
If not I will watch the girls
As you all do it
