dallas, patrie du dollar du pétrol

I knew that the long-running 1978 US prime-time soap opera with its spinoffs that followed the feuding of the oil tycoons the Ewings with its cliffhangers and long story-arcs enjoyed more than a cult following in Germany but did not realise that the theme tune had been modified for francophone television markets to include expository lyrics. Continuing with the second verse and refrain:

Dallas, tu ne connais pas la pitié
Dallas, le revolver est ton idole
Dallas, tut e raccroches à ton passé
