Lyrics of the song.

Cajun French English

Tu m’as dit hier au soir
Que tu pouvais plus m’aimer
Oh ça, ça me fait du mal

Tous les jours et tous les semaines
Mais on peut pas danser ou rencontrer
Oh ça, ça me fait du mal

You told me last night
You could love me
Oh, it hurts me

Every day and every week
We can't go dancing or even meet up
Oh, it hurts me
