Bien sur et bonsoir comment ça va hé
Oui je regrette je parle Français bien mais c'est nécessaire
Pour vous parler Français à moi très lentement
Parce mes oreilles sont très lentement avec les phrases
Mais bonsoir

We're gonna do something called "Be My Husband"
And it goes this way
Those of you
Nous avons trois millions fans dans Montréal n'est ce pas
Vous êtes là vous êtes là ah bon ah bon okay d'accord
This song goes like this
It goes
Be my husband
I be your wife
Right okay

You you you clap at that point
We'll try again
Be my husband I be your wife

Attendez attendez
Follow me now
Exactement exactement
Il est comme ça exactement
Un instant écoutez

Be my husband I be your wife
Be my husband I be your wife
Be my husband I be your wife
Loving all of you the rest of your life

If you promise me you be my man

C'est nécessaire pour exactement exactement juste propre

Be my husband I be your wife
Be my husband I be your wife bon bon
Be my husband I be your wife
Loving all of you the rest of your life

If you promise me you be my man
If you promise me you be my man
If you promise me you be my man
Gonna love you the best I can

Stick to the promise man that you made me bon bon bon
Stick to the promise man that you made me
Stick to the promise man you made me
That you stay away from Rosalie

Oh daddy love me good

Oh daddy now love me good

That's it c'est ça c'est ça c'est ça

Best I can
Stick to the promise man that you made me
Stick to the promise man that you made me
Stick to the promise man that you made me
That you'll stay away from Rosalie

If you want me to I cook and sow
If you want me to I cook and sow
If you want me to I'll cook and sow
Outside of you there is no place to go

Oh daddy love me oh daddy love me
Oh daddy love me oh daddy love me

If you want me to I cook and sow
If you want me to I cook and sow
If you want me to I cook and sow
Outside of you there is no place to go

Please don't treat me so doggone mean
Please don't treat me so doggone mean
Don't stop on me don't stop on me
And please don't treat me so doggone mean
You're the meanest man I ever seen

I can't I can't hear you I can't hear you
I can't hear you I can't hear you
C'est meilleur now c'est meilleur now

Don't stop don't stop

Please don't treat me so doggone mean
Please don't treat me so doggone mean
Watch watch watch for you
Please don't treat me so doggone mean
You're the meanest man I ever seen
