Thread Name: ADD: French song, J'ai ma combine - translate?
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: French song, J'ai ma combine
A nice song in 1930s style. The topic is, of course, time-honoured.

Here is what Wiktionary says for "combine", quite correctly:

"(colloquial) trick, scheme"

As for "turlupiner", Wiktionary translates nicely:

"to make fun of, to take the mickey out of"

– I had to look up "to take the mickey out of".
