Ma petite couturière

Ma petite couturière
Elle est pas haute couture
Mais faut voir quand elle coud
Des ourlets à mon cœur

“My little seamstress
She’s not haute couture
But you should see her when she sews
The hems to my heart”

Des trous dans les tricots
Et les bas qui s’effilent
Au fil du temps tu vois
Passer sur la machine
Finis les travailleuses
Bonjour les plasticiennes
L’heure est aux dépensières
Aux abeilles en guêpières

“Holes in knits
And frayed stockings
Over time you see
Everything’s made in factories
Gone are the artisans
Today you have “artists”
The hour belongs to spendthrifts
Bees in bodices”

Damien Saez – Ma petite couturière

Viva la revolution!

‘Gone are the artisans’. There are times I feel it is a little bit tragic that we lost a charming cottage industry like tailors and seamstresses. I love modernity, but sometimes it feels like we’re trading off more than it’s worth it, don’t you think?

I’m feeling rather nostalgic these days for some reason I cannot explain. Getting old, perhaps? Egad!

Anyway, on to the credits, my lovelies…
