The song of the restaurants

Aujourd'hui, on a plus le droit
Ni d'avoir faim ni d'avoir froid
Dépassé le "Chacun pour soi"
Quand je pense à toi, je pense à moi
Je ne te promets pas le grand soir
Mais juste à manger et à boire
Un peu de pain et de chaleur
Dans les restos, les restos du coeur

Today, we no longer have the right
To be hungry or to be cold
Over the "Each for himself"
When I think of you, I think of me
I don't promise you a huge banquet
But only something to eat and to drink
A bit of bread and of warmth
In the restos, the restos of the heart

(repeat 5 times)
