J'ai deux amours (English translation)

French
A A

J'ai deux amours

On dit qu'au-delà des mers,
Là-bas sous le ciel clair,
Il existe une cité au séjour enchanté.
Et sous les grands arbres noirs,
Chaque soir,
Vers elle s'en va tout mon espoir.
 
J'ai deux amours :
Mon pays et Paris.
Par eux toujours
Mon cœur est ravi.
 
Manhattan est belle,
Mais à quoi bon le nier :
Ce qui m'ensorcelle, c'est Paris,
c'est Paris tout entier.
Le voir un jour
c'est mon rêve joli.
J'ai deux amours :
Mon pays et Paris.
 
Manhattan est belle,
Mais à quoi bon le nier :
Ce qui m'ensorcelle, c'est Paris,
c'est Paris tout entier.
Le voir un jour
c'est mon rêve joli.
J'ai deux amours :
Mon pays et Paris.

I have two loves

Versions: #1#2
It is said that above the seas,
Over there under the clear sky,
Exists a city, where the stay is enchanted,
And under the big black trees,
Every evening,
Towards it leaves all my hope.
 
I have two loves
My country and Paris.
By them always
Is my heart ravished.
 
Manhattan is beautiful,
But why deny it,
what puts a spell on me is Paris,
Paris in its whole.
Seeing it one day
Is my pretty dream.
I have two loves,
My country and Paris.
 
(Repeat)
 
Manhattan is beautiful,
But why deny it,
what puts a spell on me is Paris,
Paris in its whole.
Seeing it one day
Is my pretty dream.
I have two loves,
My country and Paris.
 
Thanks!
