About Les Cactus

"Les Cactus" is the third single by French singer-songwriter Jacques Dutronc, released in 1967. It is the last from his self-titled debut album. It reached number 4 in the French singles chart in March 1967, selling over 400,000 copies. The song was referenced by French Prime Minister Georges Pompidou in the Assemblée Nationale to indicate his feelings towards his former Finance Minister, Valéry Giscard d'Estaing, who was a harsh critic of his successor Michel Debré: "As Jacques Dutronc says, there is a cactus here". The comment made front-page news. A live cover of the song was released as a single by Vanessa Paradis in 1994. The song was covered by The Last Shadow Puppets on their The Dream Synopsis EP.

Le monde entier est un cactus
Il est impossible de s'assoir
Dans la vie, il y a qu'des cactus
Moi je me pique de le savoir
Aïe aïe aïe! 
Ouille!
Aïe aïe aïe!

Dans leurs cœurs, il y a des cactus
Dans leurs portefeuilles, il y a des cactus
Sous leurs pieds, il y a des cactus
Dans leurs gilets, il y a des cactus
Aïe aïe aïe! 
Ouille ouille ouille!
Aïe!

Pour me défendre de leurs cactus
À mon tour j'ai mis des cactus
Dans mon lit, j'ai mis des cactus
Dans mon slip, j'ai mis des cactus
Aïe aïe aïe! 
Ouille!
Aïe aïe aïe!

Dans leurs sourires, il y a des cactus
Dans leurs ventres, il y a des cactus
Dans leurs bonjours, il y a des cactus
Dans leurs cactus, il y a des cactus
Aïe aïe aïe! 
Ouille!
Aïe!

Le monde entier est un cactus
Il est impossible de s'assoir
Dans la vie, il y a qu'des cactus
Moi je me pique de le savoir
Aïe aïe aïe! 
Ouille!
Aïe!
Aïe!
Aïe!
Aïe!
Aïe!
Ouille!
Aïe!
