Boum Badaboum was the song that represented Monaco at the Eurovision Song Contest 1967. The song was performed by the late Marie-Pierre Barelli as Minouche Barelli. The song was written and composed by Serge Gainsbourg, who wrote the winning entry in 1965, and will eventually write the French entry to the 1990 contest.

Lyrics

(Cinq, quatre, trois, deux, un, zéro)

Boum-badaboum, boum boum
Boum-badaboum, boum boum

Avant de faire tout sauter, boum boum
Laissez-moi le temps d'aimer, badaboum
Laissez-moi encore la vie, boum boum
Au moins mille et une nuits, badaboum

Boum-badaboum, boum boum
Boum-badaboum, boum boum

Laissez-moi encore la vie, boum boum
Au moins mille et une nuits, badaboum
Laissez-moi mille et un jours, boum boum
Avant le compte à rebours, badaboum

Boum-badaboum, boum boum
Boum-badaboum, boum boum

Laissez-moi vivre un peu
(Huit, sept, six, cinq, quatre, trois, deux)
Avant de m' faire la peau
(Cinq, quatre, trois, deux, un, zéro)

Boum-badaboum, boum boum
Boum-badaboum, boum boum

Si mes jours me sont comptés, boum boum
Je ne veux pas seulement aimer, badaboum
S'il est d'autres paradis, boum boum
Je veux les connaître aussi, badaboum

Boum-badaboum, boum boum
Boum-badaboum, boum boum

S'il est d'autres paradis, boum boum
Je veux les connaître aussi, badaboum
Quand j'aurai tout essayé, boum boum
Je partirai sans regret, badaboum

Boum-badaboum, boum boum
Boum-badaboum, boum boum
Boum-badaboum, boum boum
Boum-badaboum, boum boum[1]

(Five, four, three, two, one, zero)

Boom-badaboom, boom boom
Boom-badaboom, boom boom

Before blowing everything up, boom boom
Leave me the time to love, badaboom
Still leave me my life, boom boom
At least a thousand and one nights, badaboom

Boom-badaboom, boom boom
Boom-badaboom, boom boom

Still leave me my life, boom boom
At least a thousand and one nights, badaboom
Leave me a thousand and one days, boom boom
Before counting backwards, badaboom

Boom-badaboom, boom boom
Boom-badaboom, boom boom

Let me live a little bit
(Eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two)
Before killing me
(Five, four, three, two, one, zero)

Boom-badaboom, boom boom
Boom-badaboom, boom boom

If my days are counted, boom boom
I don't only want to love, badaboom
If other paradises exist there, boom boom
I want to know them too, badaboom

Boom-badaboom, boom boom
Boom-badaboom, boom boom

If other paradises exist there, boom boom
I want to know them too, badaboom
When I have tried everything, boom boom
I'll leave without regret, badaboom

Boom-badaboom, boom boom
Boom-badaboom, boom boom
Boom-badaboom, boom boom
Boom-badaboom, boom boom
