Is the line 'I'm a nice guy' an official translation? As I'd want to translate 'Je suis un chic type' as 'I'm a fashionable type/sort/guy'

The translation is definitely not official--it's mostly Google Translate with a few modifications to better reflect my interpretation of the intended meaning. I was initially thrown off by 'chic' as well but I've checked with other sources and 'chic type' is clearly an idiom for 'nice guy'.

Two notes:

  • Should that colon be there? As far as I can tell, he's saying that he's the one who is a superstar in the US. It just seems more logical without it, I guess? If that's the case, the translation would also need updating
  • In French, you put a space before the colon.

  • The colon is the only way that sentence makes sense grammatically (at least in English,) and I'm sure I remember it from the official lyrics. I don't have the CD available to check for a few more days, so if someone else would like to check and alter appropriately that would be great.
  • Pretty sure the official lyrics don't have a space, but I'll check when I get home if needed.

At the New York Artificial Heart tour concert, JoCo inserted a cover of Jessie's Girl into the song. I think it would be good to note that here, but I'm not sure if he did it at other appearances, and I can't recall if the cover was in English or French. Other people remember? --Jtotheonah 23:50, 27 July 2012 (EDT)
