The Flowers of Evil (Les fleurs du mal)

English translation

The Flowers of Evil

(Don Carlos)
It's so easy to do good, why do evil?
Will you have no path, no ideal ?
Will you never have a bit of moral?
 
(Don Juan)
The Flowers of Evil, the French lilies
Are losing their petals, it's the same, it's the same
Ballroom's games, vices' games
I don't care if they don't take me to heaven
 
(Don Carlos)
One day mayble you'll understand the taste of love
You will feel so good in the arms of a girl forever
One happy day, if God wishes
 
(Don Juan)
The Flowers of Evil, the French lilies
Are losing their petals, it's the same, it's the same
Ballroom's games, vices' games
I don't care if they don't take me to heaven
 
(Don Carlos)
I see good everywhere
I love people who stand up
 
(Don Juan)
You never understand
The only pleasure that remains
Is women and wine
 
(Don Juan & Don Carlos)
The Flowers of Evil, the French lilies
Are losing their petals, it's the same, it's the same
Ballroom's games, vices' games
(Don Juan)
I don't care if they don't take me to heaven
 
(Don Juan & Don Carlos)
The Flowers of Evil, the French lilies
Are losing their petals, it's the same, it's the same
(Don Juan)
I will never be an accomplice
to those who want to take me to heaven
 
(Don Juan & Don Carlos)
The Flowers of Evil

Les fleurs du mal

[Don Carlos:]
C’est si facile de faire le bien, pourquoi le mal ?
N’auras-tu donc aucun chemin, aucun idéal ?
N’auras-tu jamais, un peu de morale ?

Nice translation! Thank you. "Les fleurs du mal" are known in English as "The Flowers of Evil" and 'loosing' should be spelled as 'losing' !
