“Dites-moi” LYRICS

Dites-moi
Pourquoi
La vie est belle?

Dites-moi
Pourquoi
La vie est gai?

Dites-moi
Pourquoi,
Chère mad’moiselle,

Est-ce que
Parce que
Vous m’aimez?

English adaptation:

Tell me why
The sky
Is filled with music.

Tell me why
We fly
On clouds above.

Can it be
That we
Can fly to music

Just because,
Just because
We’re in love?
