"Elle me dit" (English: She Tells Me) is a song by British singer and songwriter Mika, released as a single in France ahead of the release of his third studio album, The Origin of Love. Mika re-recorded the song in English under the title "Emily". "Emily" is included on the standard tracklisting of The Origin of Love, while "Elle me dit" is featured as a bonus track the French standard edition of the album, and all international deluxe editions. The song was released on 11 July 2011.

Background[edit]

The song was first rumoured when a twelve-second preview was published online on 1 July 2011.[1] Just ten days later, the French iTunes Store made the whole song available as a digital download.[2] However, its official release did not occur until 26 September 2011.[3] Lyrically, the song is about a woman who constantly who demeans and puts down the singer, as shown in the chorus.

Template:Original: |Elle me dit, c'est ta vie Fais c'que tu veux, tant pis Un jour tu comprendras Un jour tu t'en voudras Elle me dit, t'es trop nul Sors un peu de ta bulle Tu fais n'importe quoi On dirait que t'aimes ça

Template:Translated: |She told me, it's your life, Do what you want, oh well One day you'll understand One day you'll want it She told me, you're a zero Get out of your bubble a little You don't do anything important Looks like you like that
