Basique lyrics in English 

[Outro]
Je vais sortir un nouvel album mais avant
Faut qu’on r’voit les bases
Je vais faire une vidéo simple et j’vais dire des trucs simples
Parce que vous êtes trop cons
Simple, basique, ok

Okay, I’m going to release a new album.
But first, we need to go over the basics
I’m going to make a simple video where I’m going to say simple things
Because you’re too dumb
Simple, basic, ok

[Verse 1]
Les gens les plus intelligents sont pas toujours ceux qui parlent le mieux (simple)
Les hommes politiques doivent mentir sinon tu voterais pas pour eux (basique)
Si tu dis souvent qu’t’as pas d’problème avec l’alcool, c’est qu’t’en as un (simple)
Faut pas faire un enfant avec les personnes que tu connais pas bien (basique)
Les mecs du FN ont la même tête que les méchants dans les films (simple)
Entre avoir des principes et être un sale con, la ligne est très fine (basique)
Hugo Boss habillait des Nazis, le style a son importance (simple)
Les dauphins sont des violeurs, ouais, méfie-toi des apparences (basique)

The most intelligent people aren’t always the ones who speak well (simple)
Politicians have to lie or else you wouldn’t vote for them (basic)
If you often say you don’t have a problem with alcohol, it’s because you have one (simple)
Don’t make a child with people you don’t know well (basic)
The guys from FN have the same head as the bad guys in the movies (simple) (FN is the French far right party)
Between having principles and being a dirty bastard, the line is very thin (basic)
Hugo Boss dressed the Nazis, the style has its importance (simple)
Dolphins are rapists, yeah, beware of appearances (basic)

[Chorus 1]
Basique, simple, simple, basique
Basique, simple, simple, basique
Vous n’avez pas les bases, vous n’avez pas les bases
Vous n’avez pas les bases, vous n’avez pas les bases

Basic, simple, simple, basic
Basic, simple, simple, basic
You don’t have the basics, you don’t have the basics
You don’t have the basics, you don’t have the basics

[Verse 2]
Si c’est marqué sur internet, c’est p’t-être faux mais c’est p’t-être vrai (simple)
Illuminatis ou pas, qu’est-ce que ça change? Tu t’fais baiser (basique)
À l’étranger, t’es un étranger, ça sert à rien d’être raciste (simple)
Les mecs les plus fous sont souvent les mecs les plus tristes (basique)
Cent personnes possèdent la moitié des richesses du globe (simple)
Tu s’ras toujours à un ou deux numéros d’avoir le quinté dans l’ordre (basique)
Si t’es souvent seul avec tes problèmes, c’est parce que souvent l’problème c’est toi (simple)
Toutes les générations disent que celle d’après fait n’importe quoi (cliché)

If it’s written on the internet, it might be false but it might be true (simple)
Illuminati or not, what difference does it make? You get fucked (basic)
You’re a foreigner when you’re abroad, it’s useless to be racist (simple)
The craziest guys are often the saddest guys (basic)
One hundred people own half of the world’s wealth (simple)
You’ll always be one or two off while counting your horses (basic)
If you are often alone with your problems, it’s because you are often the problem (simple)
Every generations say that the next generation messes everything up (cliché)

[Chorus 2]
Basique, simple, simple, basique
Basique, simple, simple, basique
Basique, simple, simple, basique
Basique, simple, simple, basique
Vous n’avez pas les bases
Vous n’avez pas les bases
Vous n’avez pas les bases
Vous n’avez pas les bases
Basique, simple, vous n’avez pas les bases
Basique, simple, vous n’avez pas les bases
Basique, simple, vous n’avez pas les bases
Basique, simple, vous n’avez pas les bases
Basique, simple, simple, basique
Basique, simple, simple, basique
Basique, simple, simple, basique
Basique, simple, simple, vous n’avez pas les bases

Basic, simple, simple, basic
Basic, simple, simple, basic
Basic, simple, simple, basic
Basic, simple, simple, basic
You don’t have the basics
You don’t have the basics
You don’t have the basics
You don’t have the basics
Basic, simple, you don’t have the basics
Basic, simple, you don’t have the basics
Basic, simple, you don’t have the basics
Basic, simple, you don’t have the basics
Basic, simple, you don’t have the basics
Basic, simple, simple, basic
Basic, simple, simple, basic
Basic, simple, simple, basic
Basic, simple, simple, you don’t have the basics
