‘Zou Bisou Bisousung by Jessica Pare’s character on Mad Men is now an iTunes hit!  Pare’s sultry take on the 1960 French yéyé hit by the then 16-year-old Gillian Hills has sparked a renewed interest in the song. According to the Daily Mail, Hills, now in her late 60’s, had no idea the song was going to be redone on Mad Men.

The lyrics of Zou Bisou Bisou roughly translated into English:

Kiss kiss kiss
My God, how soft they are!
Kiss kiss kiss
The sound of kisses!
In the bushes, under the August sky
Lovers glide stealthily
Like birds, they have dates
Everywhere you hear:
Kiss kiss kiss etc.
My God, how soft they are!
But tell me, do you know
What that means, between us,
What does “zou bisou” mean?
It means, I confess to you,
But yes, I love only you!
Kiss kiss kiss etc.
My God, how soft it is!
But no need for bushes in the month of August
When you kiss me softly on the neck!
It’s funny, you see, I confess,
I feel it everywhere
Kiss kiss kiss
My God, how soft it is!
Kiss kiss kiss
Little kisses
Kiss kiss kiss
