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".
