    If anyone here can speak french, I would like to know the translation to the words in this Talking Heads song,


    I can't seem to face up to the facts
    I'm tense and nervous and I can't relax
    I can't sleep 'cause my bed's on fire
    Don't touch me I'm a real live wire

    Psycho Killer
    Qu'est-ce que c'est?
    Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far far better
    Run run run run run run run away
    Psycho Killer
    Qu'est-ce que c'est?
    Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far far better
    Run run run run run run run away

    You start a conversation you can't even finish it.
    You're talkin' a lot, but you're not sayin' anything.
    When I have nothing to say, my lips are sealed.
    Say nothing once, why say it again?

    Psycho Killer,
    Qu'est-ce que c'est?
    Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far far better
    Run run run run run run run away
    Psycho Killer
    Qu'est-ce que c'est?
    Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far far better
    Run run run run run run run away

    Ce que j'ai fait ce soir la-Ce qu'elle a dit ce soir la Realisant mon espoir,
    Je me lance vers la gloire... Ok
    We are vain and we are blind
    I hate people when they're not polite

    Psycho Killer,
    Qu'est-ce que c'est?
    Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far far better
    Run run run run run run run away
    Psycho Killer,
    Qu'est-ce que c'est?
    Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far far better
    Run run run run run run run away

    Thanks in advance!

    Its really simple french, one of the first phrases you learn in French class is Qu'est-est ce?- or what is that?

    There are also online translators. Sort of difficult to find, but usefull.
    that makes no logic

    you don't have to know both since it translates it for you... the thing is, almost nobody is ever online

    wikipedia rocks! (except for species info)(CPers-add your vast knowledge of CPs to wikipedia&#33

    Psycho Killer
    What is it?
    Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far far better
    Run run run run run run run away
    Psycho Killer
    What is it?
    Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far far better

    What I did that night-what she said that night-Realising my hope,
    I launch myself towards glory... Ok
    We are vain and we are blind
    I hate people when they're not polite

    etc, etc. (basically the same as Finch's reply, just slightly corrected the "what that this is" part [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] )

    Got any Japanese songs you want translated? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
