Lyrics concerning the effects of colonialism, and post-colonialism are still topical, and quite adult .

Et puis un jour la Crise
Nous envahit aussi
Qu'on les renvoie chez eux
Ils seront plus heureux
Qu'on leur donne un pourboire
Faut être libéral
Et quand à ceux qui râlent
Un bon coup de pied au cul.
