Zou Bisou, Bisou

Unlimited Cool #13  ”Zou Bisou, Bisou”  Gillian Hills

This song is played on the Season 5 Premier of Mad Men. You can enjoy the scene HERE! 

Roughly translated, “zou” is a casual exclamation and “bisou” is a sweet kissa peck on the cheek to say hello and goodbye. So the lyrics hash out to:

Oh! Kiss kiss / My God, they are sweet! / …Oh! Kiss kiss / the sound of kisses /…Oh! Kiss kiss /…That means, I confess / But yes, I love only you!
