Oh, when we pet, don’t you get all upset
(Pour chercher la femme ne fais pas de drame)
(Ne dis pas “mon âme”, it’s just a game)
It’s a game, place your bet, play the game
(Messieurs et Mesdames, faites vos jeux, it’s just a game)

Come on and join us
It’s a game of girl-and-boyness

(So when we pet, I won’t get all upset)
Pour chercher la femme ne fais pas de drame
Ne dis pas “mon âme”, it’s just a game
(It’s a game, place your bet, play the game)
Messieurs et Mesdames, faites vos jeux, it’s just a game

O mamma mia

Don’t make a big hassle
Let’s not build a castle
(Cara querida mine) Caro querido mine

(I love you) O, je t’aime, je t’aime
(M’aimez-vous?) Yes, I do
Always, toujours, yeah, fine

Chercher la femme, ce n’est pas un drame
(So don’t you upset her, stay loose and just pet her)
(Keep cool and you’ll get her, it’s just a game)
Alors, messieurs-dames, un game
(You’ll find it’s much better, keep in mind it’s just a game)

Come on and live now
Give all you can give now, live and give and play the game
(Oui, Messieurs-dames, un game)

So don’t you upset her, keep cool and you’ll get her
Hey, cats can play house here, but who is playing the mouse here?
Oh, what a game, it’s just a game
So it’s no wrong (To sing this song)

(‘Cause it has a moral)
(It’s to love and not to quarrel)

It’s really much better, stay loose and just pet her
Keep cool and you’ll get her, it’s just a game
Quel jeu, mon Dieu, mon Dieu, quel jeu
We’re giving our all and just living and balling
O goeie genade

Don’t make a big hassle
No, don’t build a castle
Sag nur “Ich liebe dich”

(Yekiri) Dragi, rakkaani
(Yekiri) O chérie
Klingt ja so schön für mich

So, don’t you dret, on your mark, now get set
(Pour chercher la femme me fais pas de drame)
(Ne dis pas “mon âme”, it’s just a game)
Come on, make like a jet, ’cause this
(Messieurs et Mesdames, faites vos jeux, it’s just a game)

Game’s a way to catch her
Come, darlin’, mo chuisle, come, mo chuisle, play the game
(Oui, messieurs-dames, un game)

It’s just a game, oh, what a game
Oui, oui, chéri (Oh, we can see)
L’amour… love’s a game so…
Mmm… skål!
