about

April 2nd 2020 would have been Serge Gainsbourg's 82nd birthday. This is an homage to his relentless cool (and Brigitte Bardot, and Jane Birkin) (While also being an homage to Jonathan Richman and our past ability to travel.)

lyrics

I’m going to France
I’m going to France
Cause that’s where Brigitte Bardot, yes, she learned how to dance.

Oh I am going to France
I’m going to France
Cause that’s where Serge Gainsbourg ,yes, he got in her pants

Oh and if I had the chance
Oh I would go to France
I would take in the museums
I would soak in the romance
Yes if I had the chance
I would go to France
Cause that’s where Brigitte Bardot, yes, she learned how to dance.

Oh I am going to France
Yes I’m going to France
Cause that’s where Jane Birkin, yes she learned how to dance.

Oh I am going to France
I’m going to France
Cause that’s where Serge Gainsbourg, yes, he got in her pants

Oh yes if I had the chance
Oh I would go to France
I would sit in the café, waste away all the day
And I would drink café au lait
Before going to the Musee d’Orsay

Oh yes I’m going to France

I am going to France
I am going to France

Cause that’s where Brigitte Bardot, yes, she learned how to dance.

Oh I am going to France
I’m going to France
Cause that’s where Serge Gainsbourg, yes, he got in her pants

Oh and if I had the chance, oh I would go to France
I would take the high-speed train to the South of France
And I would lie on the beach
And I would soak in the rays
And I would tell the French girls I’m from the U.S. of A.

Oh yes he sings the songs as if he wasn’t even trying
But the ladies would scream as if they were dying
Well he’d smoke cigarettes and he’d stare into their eyes
And the next thing that you know
He’d be between their thighs

Because he was France
Oh yes he was France
And he knew all their secrets about romance
Yes he was France
Oh yes he was France
And I’m pretty sure that’s where he learned how to dance

Oh I’m going to France
I’m going to France
That’s where Brigitte Bardot, yes, she learned how to dance.

Oh I am going to France
I’m going to France
Cause that’s where Serge Gainsbourg decided maybe he’d like to get into someone elses pants besides Brigitte Bardot’s and that sounded like a good idea to him

Oh I am going to France
I’m going to France
Cause that’s where Serge Gainsbourg, yes, he learned how to dance
And then he used that dance
To get in ladies pants
And he would smoke cigarettes
And stare at them with his deep, dark, mysterious eyes
Yes Serge Gainsbourg was from France, oh yes he was

And he would take in the museums
And he would soak in the romance
And he would go to the cafes
and he would sip café au laits

And he would go to the South of France
And he would go to the beach
And he wouldn’t even have to say anything to the women because he was Serge Gainsbourg and they just knew who he was.

Oh I am going to France
I’m going to France
Cause that’s where Serge Gainsbourg yes he learned how to dance
