But the most important thing about Modern Times is that we can hear Chaplin’s voice for the first time: he performs in grammelot Léo Daniderff’s song Je cherche après Titine. Chaplin’s version is also known as The Nonsense Song. The lyrics don’t mean anything indeed but are just a gibberish made of Italian and French words:
« Se bella piu satore, je notre so catore,
Je notre qui cavore, je la que, la qui, la quoi !
Le spinash or le busho, cigaretto toto bello,
Ce rakish spagoletto, si la tu, la tu, la tua !
Senora pelefima, voulez-vous le taximeter,
Le zionta sur la tita, tu la tu la tu la wa ! »
And this first time also was the last time. The Tramp character made his ultimate appearance in Modern Times.
