Le petit jardin (English translation)

The little garden

It was a little garden
that had the nice smell of the Métro
that had the nice smell of Paris region
It was a little garden
with a table and a garden chair,
with an apple tree and a fir tree
in a backyard near Chaussée-d'Antin1
 
(chorus)
But one day, near the garden,
a man walked by, and this man wore
a concrete flower on his lapel.
In the garden, a voice sang:
"I beg you, I beg you, Mr. real estate developer
I beg you, I beg you, preserve this grace
I beg you, I beg you, Mr. real estate developer
don't cut my flowers."
 
It was a little garden
that had the nice smell of the Métro
that had the nice smell of Paris region
It was a little garden
with a robin in its fir tree
with a man gardening
in a backyard near Chaussée-d'Antin
 
(chorus)
 
It was a little garden
that had the nice smell of the Métro
Replacing the little garden
stands an entrance to an underground parking
where downtown cars are
packed like cinder blocks.
 
It was a little garden
in a backyard near Chaussée-d'Antin.
It was a little garden
in a backyard near Chaussée-d'Antin.
