English

Hello hello Mr. fighter
Look! there we go again…
Go-getters don´t forsake!
They never wallow in their fate

UUUUUHHHHHH

More than a thousand miles until the end
We´re never gonna know what lies ahead.
We only got today
to learn from our yesterday!

I feel alive bringing into play
my whole life going all the way.
I´m still alive and I turn away
from broken mirrors.
I feel alive when I dare to say
I wanna fight!
Won´t fix by running running running…

Say yay yay yay!
Come on and raise your battle cry!
You are the one who never dies!
Hurray! Sing it lalalala!
Go on singing lalalala!
You keep on climbing over hills!
Right now you´re following your dreams!
Hurray! Sing it lalalala! Hurray!

Say Yay Yay Yay!
Hurray!
Say Yay Yay Yay!
Say Yay Yay Yay!
Hurray!
Say Yay Yay Yay!

Hello Hello Mr. Danger
No need to be afraid! Booh Ah!
I know by heart my shades
I got the light between my breaks Booh Ah!

More than a thousand
wounds upon my hands Booh Ah!
of every time I fought them face to face!
We go through our mistakes
to find the way to go back straight. Booh Ah!

I feel alive bringing into play
my whole life going all the way.
I´m still alive and I turn away
from broken mirrors.
I feel alive when I dare to say
I wanna fight!
Won´t fix by running!
No no no no won´t fix by running!

Come on and raise your battle cry!
You are the one who never dies!
Hurray! Sing it lalalala!
Go on singing lalalala!
You keep on climbing over hills!
Right now you´re following your dreams!
Hurray! Sing it lalalala! Hurray!

Say Yay Yay Yay!
Hurray!
Say Yay Yay Yay!
Say Yay Yay Yay!
Hurray!
Say Yay Yay Yay!

Hurray! You gotta Say Yay!
Turutututururu! Turutututu!
Hurray! You gotta Say Yay!
Raise up your battle cry!
Say Yay Yay Yay!

Bonjour, Mr. le lutteur
Regarde, on est reparti
Les fonçeurs n’abandonnent jamais !
Ils ne s’apitoient jamais de son sort
Plus de mille kilomètres Jusqu’à la fin
On ne sait jamais ce qu’on peut trouver Nous n’avons qu’aujourd’hui
Pour apprendre d’hier

Ça fait du bien de mettre en jeu
ma vie tout le poing du chemin
Je suis toujours en vie et je tourne le dos
aux miroirs cassés
Je me sens vivante quand j’ose dire
Ça ne sert à rien de courir….

Crie Yay Yay Yay !
Allez ! Chantez le cri de guerre
Tu es le seul qui ne meurt jamais
Hourra ! Chantez, lalalala ! Chantez, lalalala !
Vous gravissez les montagnes
Maintenant tu fais réalité tes rêves
Hourra ! Chantez, lalalala ! Hourra !

Crie Yay Yay Yay !
Hourra !
Crie Yay Yay Yay !
Crie Yay Yay Yay !
Hourra !
Crie Yay Yay Yay !
Bonjour, bonjour Mr Danger
N’ayez pas peur !
Je connais par coeur mes ombres
J’ai vu la lumière entre les coups

Plus de mille
bléssures aux mains
de mes combats face à face
on apprend de nos erreurs
pour reprendre le bon chemin
Ça fait du bien de mettre en jeu
ma vie tout le poing du chemin
Je suis toujours en vie et je tourne le dos
aux miroirs cassés
Je me sens vivante quand j’ose dire
Ça ne sert à rien de courir….
Crie Yay Yay Yay !
Allez ! Chantez le cri de guerre
Vous êtes celui qui ne meurt jamais
Hourra ! Chantez, lalalala ! Chantez, lalalala !
Vous gravissez les montagnes
Maintenant tu fais réalité tes rêves
Hourra ! Chantez, lalalala ! Hourra !

Crie Yay Yay Yay !
