Song excerpt – Challenge yourself and transcribe what you’re hearing

On veut du green green green green green greenwashing
On veut des tours d’avion, des Airbus, du diésel
Des mandarines toutes les saisons, des grands voyages dans le ciel
Du high tech à la maison, de la nouvelle technologie
On veut pouvoir dire ‘Pardon’ et soulager son esprit
On veut d’la viande d’Argentine, d’la bidoche à tous les repas
De la World Food dans la cuisine, on veut du sucre, on veut du gras
On veut moins cher, on veut meilleur, on veut toujours un peu d’ailleurs
