Ok, this question has been bugging me since I heard this song, partly because the song has been in my head and I catch myself humming it and I want to know what I’m humming, and partly because I’m just too damn curious for my own good. Barby sent me this French song called Porteclef, or La Ziguezon Zinzon if you look all over the net, by La Bottine Souriante. When I first heard it, I had no idea what it meant, my French isn’t awesome, but its melody crawled up into my head anyway and followed me everywhere. It wasn’t as bad as this gem, stay away from it, Matt, but it was very powerful. So I got curious about what it meant. She asked a friend who spoke French and I looked up the lyrics. Her friend said it was just a bunch of old men singing about how their keychain or their keys are rusty and the key won’t fit in the door. But I read the lyrics, and because my French isn’t so good when it comes to slang, they still confuse me, but they make me wonder if there is some serious innuendo there. Seriously, anyone who knows french, take a look at these and tell me what you think. Is it just rusty keys, or is it more about…well..parts that don’t work so well now that he’s old? I want to know what I’m singing!
