Translation courtesy of Supertitlist Tom Getty:
Well-known representative of authority,
You heard it clearly spoken.
The women of Zanzibar want political rights And straight away renounce reproductive love.
You hear them cry: "No more babies!"
To populate Zanzibar,
It's up to elephants, monkeys, snakes,
Mosquitoes and ostriches.
And as sterile as the bees in the hive
That at least make wax and honey,
Woman is just a neutered animal
In the sight of heaven.
And let me tell you, Monsieur Gendarme,
Zanzibar needs children.
Sound the alarm, cry out in the crossroads and the streets, We must make babies once again in Zanzibar!
If women won't make them, too bad.
Let men do it!
Yes, perfectly, I tell it to your face,
It shall be done by...ME!
