Go, get yourself a smile

Go, get yourself a smile

 

Boyfriend talks to me as if I was a slave.

He says: Eat. He says: Love your chain.

Boyfriend says: Do not see yourself as a prisoner in my house.

Boyfriend offers me money,

he tells me to go buy a smile.

 

 


Allez, va te chercher un sourire

 

Boyfriend me parle comme à une esclave. 

Il dit : mange.  Il dit : adore tes chaines.

Boyfriend dit : ne te prends pas pour une prisonnière dans ma maison.

Boyfriend me donne de l’argent,

il me dit d’aller acheter un sourire.

Ga jij maar een glimlach kopen

 

Boyfriend praat tegen me alsof ik een slaaf ben.

Hij zegt: Eet. Hij zegt: hou van je ketting.

Boyfriend zegt: zie jezelf niet als een gevangene in mijn huis.

Boyfriend biedt me geld aan,

hij zegt, ga jij maar een glimlach kopen.
