Set fire to your hair
Mettre le feu à vos cheveux
Poke a stick at a grizzly bear
Enfoncer un bâton dans un grizzly
Eat medicines that’s out of date
Manger des médicaments périmés
Use your private parts as piranha bait
Utilisez vos parties intimes comme appât pour piranha

Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die (x2)
Stupides façons de mourir, tellement de stupides façons de mourir

Get your toast out with a fork
Sortir votre toast avec une fourchette
Do your own electrical work
Faire vous-même votre électricité
Teach yourself how to fly
Apprendre par vous-même à voler
Eat a two week old unrefrigerated pie
Manger une tarte vieille de deux semaines stockée hors du frigo

Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die (x2)
Stupides façons de mourir, tellement de stupides façons de mourir

Invite a psycho-killer inside
Inviter un tueur psychopathe à entrer
Scratch your drug dealer’s brand new ride
Erafler la toute nouvelle voiture de votre dealer
Take your helmet off in outer space
Enlever votre casque dans l’espace
Use your clothes dryer as a hiding place
Utiliser votre sèche-linge comme cachette

Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die (x2­­)
Stupides façons de mourir, tellement de stupides façons de mourir

Keep a rattlesnake as pet
Garder un serpent à sonnettes comme animal de compagnie
Sell both the kidneys on the internet
Vendre ses deux reins sur internet
Eat a tube of super glue
Manger un tube de Super Glue
“I wonder what’s this red button do?”
“Je me demande à quoi sert ce bouton rouge?”

Dumb ways to die, so many dumb ways to die (x2)

Dress up like a moose during hunting season
S’habiller comme un orignal pendant la saison de chasse
Disturb a nest of wasps for no good reason
Déranger un nid de guêpes sans raison valable
Stand on the edge of a train station platform
Se tenir sur le bord du quai de la gare
Drive around the boom gates at a level crossing
Contourner les barrières d’un passage à niveau
Run across the tracks between the platforms
Courir à travers les rails entre les plates-formes
They may not rhyme but they’re quite possibly
Elles peuvent ne rimer à rien, mais elles sont tout à fait probables

Les plus stupides façons de mourir
So many dumb
Tellement de stupide
So many dumb ways to die
Tellement de stupides façons de mourir
