As you know, Lady GaGa's successful hit song "Bad Romance" includes French lyrics in the bridge:

Je veux ton amour
et je veux ta revanche
J'veux ton amour
I don't wanna be friends


I've been repeating these lyrics for ages, but I want to know if they sound coherent to the native French speakers. Like if I say the lyrics, will anybody give me an answer with a straight face? :laughing:

Atleast I've got that and the "Lady Marmalade" chorus down to a pat. :lol:

And yes, I know Lady GaGa sounds heavily drunk whenever she speaks in French. :mrgreen:

In fact, i don't understand anything when she spells the quoted french words in the song... But they are correct syntactically. It can be translated by (without needing to change the order) :

I want your love,
and I want your revenge
I want your love...

... :baby:

Yeah, but I don't think people use the word "revanche" much in France, right? The more appropriate word is "vengance", I believe. :tongue:

And do you have a picture of yourself floating around, Charles? It'd be nice to match the name with a face I've wanted to see since forever. :wub:

"Revanche" doesn't have same signification than "Vengeance". "Vengeance" is harder than "revanche". And "revanche" is almost used for games (poker, football...).

And if you really want to see pictures, you can ask me to become a friend in facebook community, I'm Charles Pons from Nimes... :smile:
