Brother, brother, brother, Lucien, you're like no other
Instead, I'll tell the tale of a French who prevailed
When it ain't on sale, your rumor starts to wail
If you go to jail, then who will pay the bail?
Escargot, Lucien, you eat snails
From the Zulu nation, from a town called Paris
Instead of finding pleasure, all you found was misery
Oh, luck luck will drive you butt baddy
In terms of doing good, I know you wish you really could
Succeed with the breed of the brothers on your back
It'll take a minute, rice, so take my advice
Lucine, Lucien, Lucien, Lucien

This one is for you,
"Como estas tu" or "Commenet-allez-vous"?
Voulez vous (vous)
Coo-coo (coo)
Watch that lass, gonna backlash fast
Sold you a paper bag, guess he saw you comin'
$10 brother, he was hummin' and strummin'
Gave him the money, well, I thought that was somethin'
Don't worry about a thing, I won't get specific
Think of the stuff that I said if you can
No problemo, I'll help you with your demo
Lucien, I'm just kiddin'

Not so much the mission, but you got crazy ignition
With the French "savoir faire" and the sexy dance
I won't ask why, 'cause I know that you try
Instead of doin' so much, why don't you do just a little?
In fact, it would be nice if we understood him like
Sympathetic reason in the case of the blues
I had to make the sound, his life is too profound
Young and naive, it's hard to believe
Jolly like a jumping bean or a jester
You should know!
