Françoise Hardy - V.I.P.

French

V.I.P.

Attention, ah là, voilà son avion, au bout de la piste
Attention au cœur qui bat, beaucoup trop fort et beaucoup trop vite
Attention aux yeux, l'éclat du soleil autour du cockpit
Attention branle-bas de combat, passager très spécial en transit
 
V.I.P. most important person to me
V.I.P. bienvenue à Paris-Orly
Duty-free, just, just, him and me
V.I.P. première classe, accueil garanti
V.I.P. like a glass of Glenmorangie
 
Quelque chose d'un peu à part, de troublant toujours le désir
Son allure et son regard, ont cette grâce, qui vous assassine
C'est l'amour aléatoire de silence, qu'il faut qu'on devine
Limousines palaces et bar, oh tout sans lui devient anonyme
 
V.I.P. most important person to me
V.I.P. bienvenue à Paris-Orly
Duty-free, just, just, him and me
V.I.P. première classe, accueil garanti
V.I.P. like a glass of Glenmorangie
 
Yes ou oui, just, just, let him be
V.I.P. première classe, effet garanti
V.I.P. like a glass of Glenmorangie
V.I.P. most important person to me
V.I.P. bienvenue à Paris-Orly

Some sources say:
>"Limousine pour la Sao-Paulo, oh tout sans lui, devient en ruine"
=
Limousines palaces et bar, oh tout sans lui redevient anonyme

Thanks, Piere.
I just have been reviewing a report about Francoise by "arte France" (TV): "Francoise Hardy - La Discrete".
Well worth seeing.
Thumbs up

The line: "Duty-free, just, just, him and me" also is disputed.
most sources have: "hail me" ...

Can you do a proof hearing?

Yep, she's a good singer who is somewhat underrated.

Sounds OK to me, I just hear "devient anonyme" instead of "redevient", but that does not change the meaning that much.

She is a good singer, but also a remarkable composer and lyricist.
(She says: "I can't sing. I have a flat voice")

Btw.: One of her most famous songs in German is "Frag den Abendwind".
Is there a French version for that melody?

I don't think so, but I don't know all of her early songs.
