Françoise Hardy - Tous les garçons et les filles (English translation)

English translation

All The Boys and Girls

Versions: #1#2#3
All the boys and girls my age
Walk down the street in pairs
All the boys and girls my age
Know well what it means to be happy
Eyes in eyes, and hand in hand
 
They fall in love without fear of tomorrow
Yes, but I, I walk the streets alone, the lost soul
Yes, but I, I am alone, because nobody loves me
 
My days are like my nights
In all respects
No joy and such trouble
Nobody whispers "I love you" in my ear
 
All the boys and girls my age
Make projects for the future
All the boys and girls my age
Know very well what love means
Eyes in eyes, and hand in hand
 
They fall in love without fear of tomorrow
Yes, but I, I walk the streets alone, the lost soul
Yes, but I, I am alone, because nobody loves me
 
My days are like my nights
In all respects
No joy and such trouble
Oh, when will the sun shine for me?
 
Like the boys and girls my age
Will I soon know what love is?
Like the boys and girls my age
I wonder when the day comes
 
Or the eyes in eyes, hand in hand
I will have the happy heart without fear of tomorrow
 
The day that I will no longer be a lost soul
They day that I, too, will get someone who loves me

Author's comments:

I made the translation as literal as possible to help those who want to learn French. I changed as little of the original as I could.
