The Lyrics

(Où, où, où, où, où,
Allez-vous, vous, vous, vous, vous vous?)

Them in France got a funny way t' say "d'ya go?"
(Allez-vous, vous, vous, vous, vous?)
Looks like they inquire," Go you?" you know?
(Allez-vous. . . ?)
They don't mean nothin' 'bout "where"? that's "où?"
(Allez-vous? Où allez-vous?)
To catch your name: "Comment vous appelez-vous?"
(Appelez-vous, vous, vous, vous, vous?)

They gave us "chauffeur," much mots; red-hued wine; tiny fou-uh.[0]
(Alimentons nous, nous, nous!)[1]
They like that knucklehead who scored with the souse befo-uh.
(Appelez-vous Lew' "Roi du fou?")[2]

I add a big point for punch, but word order's still thai-uh.
(Allez vous, vous, vous, vous, vous!)
I bray defyin' to quiz-me fai-uh.
(Allez vous vous, vous, faire foutre!)[3]

They get touchy when you plan to drive.
Zeez guys like to hike a ride?
Killed their king; syntax, jumbled jive.
Lookit how they say "go."

For ride, you're preparin' an itinerary.
(Allez-vous. . . ?)
They don't prate demonstrance of "where?" query,
(Allez-vous. . . ?)
Don't ask, "Quo Vadis?"[4] so don't know whithuh.
(Allez-vous. . . ?)
I don my mien "motuh scootuh" and say, "Man, go thithuh!"
(Allez vous où vous trouve' vous!)[5]

(Allons nous!)[6]
They say, "Touché! Yes, we will arrive!"
(Ah, les voeux!)[6a]
Despite nice pikes that are wide. . .
(Allons nous!)
. . .Still the kings of the bungled drive--
Lookit those crazed French go!

There they go:
(Allez vous, vous, vous, vous, vous!)
Lookit those crêped French go:
(Allez vous, fou, fou, fou, fou!)[7]
They take a trip, don't they?
(Allez vous coucou, coucous!)[8]
Qu'est ce qui se passe?[9]
(Allons nous où? Routes rues-trous!)[10]
We will pass!
(Allons nous, nous, nous, nous, nous!)
Drive madly, drive.
(Alimentons nous couscous. . .)[11]
Five toes to the flo-uh.
(. . .Avec roux, roux, roux, roux, roux.)[12]
Drive badly, drive.
(Allons nous dans deuce coupe doux.)[13]
Must get gas. . .
(Alimentons nous le coupe)[14]
. . .In this ville.

0. mots: words; petit four: small cake (literally, "small oven")
1. Let's eat!
2. Do you really call Jerry Lewis "Le Roi du (king of) Crazy?"
3. Go f*** yourself!
4. Whither goest thou?
5. Go to where you'll find yourself!
6. Let's go!
6a. Ah, the vows they make!
7. You drive crazily!
8. You're driving cuckoo!
9. Like, what's happening?
10. Where are we going? Our route is streets with potholes!
11. Let's get some couscous. . .
12. . . .With gravy.
13. We're traveling in a sweet deuce coupe.
14. Let's feed the car some fuel
