a short site about The Divine Comedy

French version

Ten Seconds To Midnight

Original version (2:10)

Ten –
Apes turn into men
And grapes turn into wine.
How we made it to nine
I’ll never know.

Eight –
Man looks for a mate,
But fate plays cruel tricks
And seven turns to six -
Still he’s alone.

Along comes number five.
Eureka! I’m alive.
I think therefore I am
A lucky man.

Three –
From this balcony
The two of us can see
The house where we first met
One wet
Sunday.
