Little French Song

Quand tout va mal
When life goes wrong
Try for a little French song
French song are maybe démodées
Mais si douces à fredonner
French song are tender à l'envie
Nostalgique à l'infini
 
Et quand on ne sais plus
Whever to belong
Try for a little French song
French song will take you to Paris
To Pigalle ou l'pile saint Louis
French song are dancing sous la pluie
De Bastille aux Tuilleries
 
Because we have de quoi frimer
We have Brassens Brel and Ferré
We have Boris Vian, Barbara
Gainsbourg, Trenet, Prevert, Cosma
Because we have de quoi choisir
We have Aznavour, Reggiani
Bécaud, Nougaro, Moustaki
Édith Piaf, Cloclo and Johnny
 
Oui oui oui oui
Bien sûr ce n'est pas Duke Ellington
Ce n'est pas Elvis ni Jackson
Ce n'est pas Fitzgerald ou Armstrong
C'est just a little French song
Mais quand le chagrin reste too long
Moi, je chante une little French song
 
Because we have de quoi frimer
We have Brassens Brel and Ferré
We have Boris Vian, Barbara
Gainsbourg, Trenet, Prevert, Cosma
Because we have de quoi choisir
We have Aznavour, Reggiani
Bécaud, Nougaro, Moustaki
Édith Piaf, Cloclo and Johnny
 
Oui oui oui oui
Et qu'on soit de Londres ou de Hong Kong
Qu'on soit trois feuilles ou shu-bang
Qu'on soit djellaba ou sarong
Try for a little French song
Quand les méchants sonnent leur gong
Moi je chante une little French song

Little French Song

When everything is bad
When life goes wrong
Try for a little French Song
French song are maybe old-fashioned
But so sweet to hum along
French song are desirably tender
Nostalgic to the eternity
 
And when we don't know
Where to belong
Try for a little French song
French song will take you to Paris
To Pigalle or Saint Louis Island
French songs are dancing in the rain
From Bastille to the Tuleries
 
Because we have what to brag
We have Brassens Brel and Ferré
We have Boris Vian, Barbara
Gainsbourg, Trenet, Prevert, Cosma
Because we have what to choose
We have Aznavour, Reggiani
Bécaud, Nougaro, Moustaki
Edith Piaf, Cloclo and Johnny
 
Yes yes yes yes
Of course, it's not Duke Ellington
It's not Elvis nor Jackson
It's not Fitzgerald or Armstrong
It's just a little French song
But when the sorrow stays to long
Me, I sing a little French song
 
Because we have what to brag
We have Brassens Brel and Ferré
We have Boris Vian, Barbara
Gainsbourg, Trenet, Prevert, Cosma
Because we have what to choose
We have Aznavour, Reggiani
Bécaud, Nougaro, Moustaki
Edith Piaf, Cloclo and Johnny
 
Yes yes yes yes
Whether you're from London or Hong Kong
Whether you're three leaves or shu-bang
Whether you're djellaba or sarong
Try for a little French song
When the mean ones hit their gong
Me, I song a little French song
 
Thanks!
