Roommates 208 - La Seine by AsheRhyder Roommates 208 - La Seine by AsheRhyder
In which the artist copied the lyrics off a lyrics reference site, and therefore hopes to not be held accountable for any misspellings or poor grammar by anyone who actually speaks French,

OR

In which the French guys have a little disagreement.

So, there's this movie. Called "Un Monstre a Paris", with little accents that my keyboard won't type, or "A Monster in Paris". It came out in France about a month ago, and hopefully will come out other places sometime in the near future, because I'm too poor to travel. It's bloody adorable, and it's like a giant mash up of Things We Love. (Good music, animation, masks, mystery, etc.) I have only a little bit to go on, because as you all can probably tell, I'm not in France and don't speak French. But there's this REALLY catchy song called "La Seine", which is about loving that river and what Erik is singing here. Yes, it's *that* Seine, as far as I can determine. Look it up on your preferred video streaming site.
Incidentally, it seems the lyrics change very slightly in the English version. Any bilingual people verify this?

Erik is dressed as one of the characters from the movie who sings that song, which is why I included my arch nemesis, the hat.



Erik belongs to Leroux and Webber.
Javert belongs to Hugo, Boublil, Schonberg, and Kretzmer.
"La Seine" belongs to Paradis and -M-. (as near as I can tell)

1.) I wanna hear that song.

2.) Was not expecting the Phantom to do that.

3.) Javert looks like he's gonna murder someone  XD

Well Javert has issues with "Le Seine" due to the fact that the guy committed suicide by drowning himself in said river, so hearing a cheery tune that involves the said tool of self destruction? Yeah... Javert is most likely going to try to kill anyone that sings that song.

That song's probably entirely too catchy, and this page made me giggle...

EDIT: Just realized that there's an English lyric that says "Learn to forgive on the bridge". That is so not a good song to sing around Javert...

Thankfully, it's now had a relatively wide release and is easy to find. When I first heard about it, it wasn't even out in its country of origin, let alone released abroad. Best of luck, and I hope you enjoy!

My French is awful, but I'm getting somethin' like, "I can't say, can't say, can't say why, come to the river with me. I can't say, can't say, can't say why, oh my dear come to the river with me."

I looked up the "La Seine" song a little while ago. It certainly is catchy, isn't it? Now I really want to see the film.
I'm guessing Javert's not happy because he jumped into the Seine in his story and Erik's singing about that same river?
