In a song published this Thursday March 16 on his social networks, the singer Pierre Perret, known for his satirical verve, drew a very bitter observation from the state of Paris. The French capital, affected by a massive strike by garbage collectors, is increasingly degraded.
Pierre Perret’s latest media release created a real buzz. It must be said that the 88-year-old composer did not go out of his way with the new song that he decided to share with his subscribers. Title Paris ransackedthe latter is a very bitter observation of the state of the French capital, which, in addition to being hit hard by a massive garbage collectors’ strike which resulted in leaving piles of waste in the streets, has since a few years singled out for his work and his insecurity.
In the clip of his new song, Pierre Perret appears all smiles on his bike to push a huge rant. Dirt, work distorting its landscape, drugs, everything goes there. Right from the start, the lyrics set the tone: “In Paris, disgusting Paris, only the rats are happy, They know that vegans here are not stupid, only feed them organic. The droppings that flower the sidewalks decorate this large dump. In Paris, winter and summer, you don’t touch the dirt. There are squares where the more a child plays, there are syringes and more nannies”.

Obviously, the 88-year-old composer takes direct aim at Anne Hidalgoeven if he did not allow himself to say the name of the mayor of the French capital. “Poor Paris, which has become so cracra, We know who did this to you. Poor Paris, ugly Paris, what state did they put you in? They had promised Nirvana and it is the berezina. Poor Paris, ugly Paris, you who were paradise, here you are dressed in Waterloo, by our kind ecologists”, also chants the interpreter. A song that is far from having unanimous support.
