Mika's written a English version of the song, which he's performed live:

These are the English lyrics:

ELLE ME DIT (SHE TELLS ME)

She tells me, "can't you write a happy song?
Get your ass to number one,
You could try a little harder."
She tells me "You could be a millionaire,
But you're so full of hot air.
Gonna end up like your father."

She tells me "You can't leave your life to chance,
Get a girl and learn to dance.
Be a boy like any other."
She tells me "Why you got so much to say?
Are you stuck up, are you gay?
Gonna end up like your brother."

She tells me "It's my life;
Don’t get to live it twice.
One day you'll understand,
Become a better man."
She's pulling out her hair
But says she doesn't care
She doesn't make no sense
Screaming at me in French

"Pourquoi tu gâches ta vie?
Pourquoi tu gâches ta vie?
Pourquoi tu gâches ta vie?
Danse danse danse danse elle me dit danse". x2

She tells me "You live your life in a balloon,
Lock yourself up in your room,
So the world can never reach ya."
She tells me "Whatcha smoking, what's that stench,
Who you’re speaking to in French?
Did you really think you had me."

She tells me "That’s enough, do as you’re told."
Does she think I’m eight years old?
I give up, it's not worth trying
She tells me "One day I will end up dead."
That's the only thing she said,
That would ever get me smiling.

She tells me "It's my life;
Don’t get to live it twice.
One day you'll understand,
Become a better man."
She's pulling out her hair
But says she doesn't care
She doesn't make no sense
Screaming at me in French

"Pourquoi tu gâches ta vie?
Pourquoi tu gâches ta vie?
Pourquoi tu gâches ta vie?
Danse danse danse danse elle me dit danse". x2

She tells me "You live your life in a balloon,
Lock yourself up in your room,
So the world can never reach ya."
She tells me "Am I speaking Japanese?"
Then she's falling on her knees,
Starts her praying to St. Peter.
She tells me "See the price I had to pay?
Had to give my life away,
All the sh*t I have to get through"
She tells me "Why'd you make this hard for me?
It's not the way it's meant to be,
I don't want to have to hate you."

Elle me dit danse,
elle me dit danse danse danse
elle me dit danse. x4

"Pourquoi tu gâches ta vie?
Pourquoi tu gâches ta vie?
Pourquoi tu gâches ta vie?
Danse danse danse danse" elle me dit danse.

(NOTE: "Pourquoi tu gâches ta vie?" Translates into "why are you wasting your life?"
