Et Je Veux Danser in English
Reviewed/Translated by John Elkhoury
COMPREHENSION DIFFICULTY: EASY
Like all my music reviews, I start with a French to English translation then critique the lyrics and style below.


Je ne veux pas savoir ton nom - non, non, non
I don't want to know your name - no, no, no
Je veux écouter le son - oh, oh, oh
I want to listen to the sound - oh, oh, oh
Je ne veux pas faire de photo - non, non, non
I don't want to take any photos - no, no, no
Je te tournerai le dos - oh, oh, oh
I will turn my back towards you - oh, oh, oh
Je ne veux pas de souvenir - non, non, non
I don't want any memory - no, no, no
N’essaie pas de me séduire - oh, oh, oh
Do not try to seduce me - oh, oh, oh
Je ne veux pas de rendez-vous - non, non, non
I don't want any dates - no, no, no
Il n’y aura jamais de nous
We will never be together

Je ne veux pas te dire mon nom - non, non, non
I don't want to tell you my name - no, no, no
Je te dirai toujours "non" - oh, oh, oh
I will always tell you "no" - oh, oh, oh
Je ne veux plus dire "I love you" - non, non, non
I don't want to say "I love you" any more - no, no, no
Ne te mets à pas à genoux - oh, oh, oh
Do not stealthily place yourself on my lap - oh, oh, oh
Je ne veux pas que tu m’enlace - non, non, non
I don't want you to embrace me - no, no, no
Je n’ai pas un coeur de glace - oh, oh, oh
I don't have a cold heart - oh, oh, oh
Je ne veux plus penser à rien - non, non, non
I don't want to think about anything - no, no, no
Ni aujourd’hui, ni demain
Not today, not tomorrow
Ni demain (x2)
Not tomorrow

Et je veux danser
And I want to dance
Je ne veux que danser
I only want to dance
Je veux faire valser
I want to waltz
Les violons du passé
(To) the violins of the past
Et je veux danser
And I want to dance
Je ne veux que danser
I only want to dance
Les violons du passé
(To) the violins of the past

Danser (x10)
Dance
Je ne veux que danser
I only want to dance

Je ne veux pas savoir ton nom - non, non, non
I don't want to know your name - no, no, no
Je veux écouter le son - oh, oh, oh
I want to listen to the sound - oh, oh, oh
Je ne veux pas te dire mon nom - non, non, non
I do not want to tell you my name - no, no, no
Je te dirai toujours "non"
I will always tell you "no"

So, I posted this song for one reason - it's catchy and it's easy. I personally like the part right around the song's 2 minute mark/ then again at around 2:45. Melissa Mars is a French actress and singer who started acting at the young ripe age of 13, singing lessons soon followed. She released a few good songs, but nothing stellar. I hope you guys enjoyed the song!
