I have most of an English transcription done and just need some help with the names of some places in Paris.

Here's the song:
https://lyricstranslate.com/en/georges-gu%C3%A9tary-i-dreamt-i-was-back-...

I dreamt I was back in Paris and so were you
We strolled down the [1 - Champs-Élysées?] as we used to do
We wandered far [2 - into the bois?] and picnicked under the trees
Then home again across the Seine, past twinkling lights on the [3-?]

I dreamt of the old [4 - rotunda / Rotonde?] in [5 - Montparnasse?]
We sat by the crowded pavement and watched them pass
We went once a year
The month was May
[6 - The chestnuts flaming on you?]
I dreamt I was back in Paris
I hope my dream comes true

[7 - Opera, 8 - Concorde, 9-?]
Each dear familiar name
Into my dream they came
I heard them just the same

[10 - Notre-Dame, 11-? 12 - Mogador?]
I saw them all once more
They stood there as before
This city I adore

I'm not sure if what I hear for #6 make sense for the context, but since he says it's May, maybe he's talking about chestnut trees in bloom?

Hi, Sarah. This is what I hear. Feel free to use the links if need be.

I dreamt I was back in Paris and so were you
We strolled down the Champs-Élysées as we used to do
We wandered far in peau de bois 1 and picnicked under the trees
Then home again across the Seine, past twinkling lights on the quays

I dreamt of the old Rotonde in Montparnasse 2
We sat by the crowded pavements and watched them pass
We went once a year
The month was May
The chestnuts flaming on you
I dreamt I was back in Paris
I hope my dream comes true

Opera, Concorde3, Madeleine 4
Each dear familiar name
Into my dream they came
I heard them just the same

Notre-Dame, Vendôme 5, Mogador 6
I saw them all once more
They stood there as before
This city I adore

Thanks, sandring, this is helpful.

For the part about bois, you don't think he's talking about Bois de Vincennes? He mentions trees.
