Variations sur Marilou

Leise Erotik kann derart überwältigend sein und ... Ach, hören Sie es doch selbst...

Serge Gainsbourg "Variations sur Marilou"


Variations sur Marilou (Variations on Marilou)

In her absent look
And absinthe iris
While Marilou has fun making ar-
Ches with menthol smokes
Between two comic strip bubbles
Playing with the zipper
Of her Levi's
I see vice
And I think of Carroll Lewis

In her absent look
And her absinthe iris
While Marilou struggles to make ar-
Ches with menthol smokes
Between two comic strip bubbles
Playing with the zipper
Opening up her Levi's
In her absent look and absinthe
Iris, I say, I see the vice
of Baby Doll*
And I think of Lewis
Carroll

In her absent look
And her absinthe iris
When the speakers spit out
From the cutting stereo
Major and minor chords
While Marilou wears out
Her health, tires herself out
Getting off

While in an absurd daydream
Marilou dissapears
Her coma absorbs her
In obsure practices
Her pupil is absent
And her absinthe iris
Through her gestures colors itself
With underlying extasies
In her look vice
Gives a salacious side
A little washed out blue
From her pair of Levi's
While she exhales
A menthol sigh
My little idiot
Lost in her physical
And cerebral exile
Plays with the metal
Of her zipper, and the atol
Of coral appears
She glues**
A finger that stops
On the edge of the corolla
Is taken near the calyx
By Alice's vertigo
From Lewis Caroll

While in obsure daydreams
Marilou dissapears
Let her coma absorb her
In absurd dreams
Her pupille leaves
And her absinth iris
Suddenly colors itself
With anticipated pleasures
Lost in her physical
And mental exil
One by one she exhales
Feverish sighs
Parfumed with menthol
My little idiot
Tinkles the metal
Of her zipper and narcisist
She pushes the vice
In the washed out blue night
Of her pair of Levi's
Come to the pubis
Of her coral sex organ
Spreading the corolla
Taken on the edge of the calyx
Of vertigo Alice
Presses down to the bone
In the wonderland
Of Lewis Caroll

Absent pupil Absinth
Iris baby doll
Listens to her idols
Jimmy Hendrix Elvis
Presley T-Rex Alice
Cooper Lou Reed the Roll
Ing stones she's crazy about them
Listening to them that narcisist
Plunges with delight
In the petrol blue night
Of her pair of Levi's
She comes to the pubis
And very cool with menthol
She manipulates
Her little orifice
Pushing vice
Right up to the calyx
With a sex symbol finger
Spreading her corolla
On a rock n' roll background
My Alice strays
In the wonderland
Of Lewis Caroll

*1956 film written by Tennessee William
** The French is 'coca-colle' which is a play on words of 'coca-cola.' Cola sounds close to the root of 'coller' to stick or to glue.
