You Still Need Something Else (Il faut encore autre chose)

English translation

You Still Need Something Else

To marry, you must be of age.
You must also publish the banns.
You need the witness, on the wedding day.
And the written consent of the parents.
It's very amusing,
But all that's not enough.
 
You still need something else,
For the spouses to be happy.
But it's not in the vows,
That the law provides for them.
If you need the birth certificate,
If the banns are so important,
You still need something else:
It is that both are in love.
 
The wife in the marriage has to obey,
She also has to follow him everywhere.
The husband has to aide and assist her,
Fidelity is everything, I believe.
That's all well and good,
But it's not the main thing however.
 
You still need something else,
To always remain happy,
But it's not in the vows,
That the law provides for them.
(x2)
For everything to be able to exist,
To consistently be faithful,
You need to keep something else:
The true love of the very first days.

Il faut encore autre chose

Pour se marier, il faut avoir l'âge
Il faut aussi publier les bans
Il faut le témoin, le jour du mariage
Et l' consentement écrit des parents
