voulez-vous coucher avec moi


Explanation:
I suspect this is similar to the phrase from the song made famous by patti labelle. I could be wrong but could que chez really be coucher. for us english speakers the sound could be similar, especially if the speaker speaks quickly or swallows sounds.

Would you like to come to bed with me?


Explanation:
is the correct translation for "Voulez vous coucher avec moi?" (the correct French). There is no such thing as "Voulez-vous que chez avec moi in French"

"Would you like to sleep with me?"


Explanation:
The sentence in French should read "Voulez vous COUCHEZ avec moi?" not "que chez" -- it seems that the sentence was transcribed incorrectly. "Voulez vous couchez avec moi?" basically means, "wanna?" :)

"Would you like to sleep with me" or "Would you like to go to bed with me"


Explanation:
I was thinking more along the lines of the song "Lady Marmalade", by Patti Labelle and recently redone by Pink,Mya, Lil' Kim, and Christina Aguilara. "que chez" should read as 'couchez', the vous conjugation of 'coucher', meaning 'to go to bed'

Do you want to go to bed with me?


Explanation:
Grammatical sense means that the word would be the infinitive 'coucher' following the conjugation, not 'couchez' as suggested above.
