lyrics

San Doudou (Without Doudou)

1
It always pleased me
When you would make sacrifices for me,
Every day you left your house to come to me
This proved to me that our love would never end
We were always in love
We didn’t give bad grass a chance
to grow in our garden of love
I never stopped saying it
We were the most beautiful couple
that existed in Petionville

Refrain:
Your name was Kasandra,
I gave you the nickname Sandoudou
Wherever you went my feet
were always next to yours
Just like a cloud that never left me
I was your guardian angel doudoudou
Oh, my name is Wanito,
you gave me the nickname Watoto
You never walked barefoot,
You always wanted me to carry you on my back
It was all my pleasure to be your
horse on two feet
Zigidap zagidap you’re on my back
And with the end of your dress,
you wipe the sweat off my back

2
In Boyer Square one day we were sitting,
your arm around my neck
You told me « sweetie, nothing wrong
can ever come from you»
I responded in a low voice
« don’t dare tell me that.
For how we’re so in love,
I’m not worried about anything »
Sometimes I forget myself
so that I can watch out for you

Like a little bird I wanted
to make a nest in my heart for you
So nothing bad would happen to you

But the angel of death appeared
suddenly and took you away
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oooooooo
Mister Death you betrayed me oh oh oh o oh
Veins of despair stretched out, about to explode
On the chalkboard all my plans, my projects erased

This is a story of love that I’ll never be able to forget
This is a story of love that I’ll never be able to forget

Refrain

You always told me
That it was only death could part us
My soul isn’t at rest
The way you left, honestly, I’m panicked
Even if it was true that you made me this promise
It’s too soon for you to leave like this
Sandoudou, believe me, I’m about to go crazy
I’ve lost strength, I’m disinterested,
My appetite is lost, I’m always tired
I often ask myself if I’ll be fixed one day
I’ve lost strength, I’m disinterested,
My appetite is lost, I’m always tired
The only thing I have to ask is “this woman,
why did I lose her?”
Uhhuhhh uuhhhuhh uhhhhuhh
Baby why did you turn your back on me?
