Ca me déplairait pas que tu m'embrasses
Na na na
Mais faut saisir ta chance avant qu'elle passe
Na na na
Si tu cherches un truc pour briser la glace
Banana banana banana

C'est le dessert
Que sert
L'abominable homme des neiges
A l'abominable enfant teenage
Un amour de dessert
Banana na na na na banana split

Les cerises confites sont des lipsticks
Na na na
Qui laissent des marques rouges sur l'antarctique
Na na na
Et pour le faire fondre une tactique
Banana banana banana

Baisers givrés sur les montagnes blanches
Na na na
On dirait que les choses se déclenchent
Na na na
La chantilly s'écroule en avalanche
Banana banana banana
