WONDERFUL LIFE


Here I go out to sea again
The sunshine fills my hair
And dreams hang in the air
Gulls in the sky and in my blue eyes
You know it feels unfair
There’s magic everywhere
Look at me standing
Here on my own again
Up straight in the sunshine

No need to run and hide
It’s a wonderful, wonderful life
No need to laugh and cry
It’s a wonderful, wonderful life

Sun in your eyes
The heat is in your hair
They seem to hate you
Because you’re there
And I need a friend
Oh, I need a friend
To make me happy
Not stand here on my own

Look at me standing
Here on my own again
Up straight in the sunshine

No need to run and hide
It’s a wonderful, wonderful life
No need to laugh and cry
It’s a wonderful, wonderful life

I need a friend
Oh, I need a friend
To make me happy
Not so alone
Look at me here
Here on my own again
Up straight in the sunshine

No need to run and hide
It’s a wonderful, wonderful life
No need to laugh and cry
It’s a wonderful, wonderful life

LET HER GO


Tell her that you love her
If you really love her
But if your heart just ain’t sure
Let her know

Growing by the hour
Love just like a flower
But when the flower dies
You’ve got to say goodbye
And let her go

Tell her that you’ll be there
If you’ll really be there
Separation’s supposed to
Make the heart grow fond
But it don’t

So tell her that you love her
If you really love her
But if your heart just ain’t sure
Let her go

Or you can keep her
It’s okay
It’s up to you
Make your own choice
Whatever you gotta do
God bless

LA VIE NE VAUT RIEN


Il a tourné sa vie dans tous les sens
Pour savoir si ça avait un sens l’existence
Il a demandé leur avis à des tas de gens ravis
Ravis, de donner leur avis sur la vie
Il a traversé les vapeurs des derviches tourneurs
Des haschich fumeurs et il a dit

La vie ne vaut rien, rien, la vie ne vaut rien
Mais moi quand je tiens, tiens
Là dans mes mains éblouies
Les deux jolis petits seins de mon amie
Là je dis rien, rien, rien, rien ne vaut la vie

Il a vu l’espace qui passe
Entre la jet set les fastes, les palaces
Et puis les techniciens de surface
D’autres espèrent dans les clochers, les monastères
Voir le vieux sergent pépère mais ce n’est que Richard Gere
Il est entré comme un insecte sur site d’Internet
Voir les gens des sectes et il a dit

La vie ne vaut rien, rien, la vie ne vaut rien
Mais moi quand je tiens, tiens
Là dans mes mains éblouies
Les deux jolis petits seins de mon amie
Là je dis rien, rien, rien, rien ne vaut la vie

Il a vu manque d’amour, manque d’argent
Comme la vie c’est détergeant
Et comme ça nettoie les gens
Il a joué jeux interdit pour des amis endormis, la nostalgie
Et il a dit

La vie ne vaut rien, rien, la vie ne vaut rien
Mais moi quand je tiens, tiens
Là dans mes mains éblouies
Les deux jolis petits seins de mon amie
Là je dis rien, rien, rien, rien ne vaut la vie

TEEN AGE IDOL


Some people call me a teenage idol
Some people say they envy me
I guess they got no way of knowing
How lonesome I can be

I need somebody to be my baby
Someone to tell my troubles to
I got no time to ever find her
‘Cause I’m just passing through

I travel around from town to lonely town
I guess I’ll always be just a rolling stone
If I find fortune and fame
And lots of people know my name
That won’t mean a thing if I’m all alone

I got no rest when I’m feeling weary
I got to pack my bags and go
I got to be somewhere tomorrow
To smile and do my show

I travel around from town to lonely town
I guess I’ll always be just a rolling stone
If I find fortune and fame
And lots of people know my name
That won’t mean a thing if I’m all alone

Some people call me a teenage idol
Some people say they envy me
I guess they got no way of knowing
How lonesome I can be
How lonesome I can be

DON’T LOOK BACK IN ANGER


Slip inside the eye of your mind
Don’t you know you might find
A better place to play?
You said that you’d never been
But all the things that you’ve seen
Will slowly fade away

So I’ll start a revolution from my bed
‘Cause you said the brains I had went to my head
Step outside, summertime’s in bloom
Stand up beside the fireplace
Take that look from off your face
You ain’t ever gonna burn my heart out

And so Sally can wait
She knows it’s too late as we’re walking on by
Her soul slides away
« But don’t look back in anger », I heard you say

Take me to the place where you go
Where nobody knows
If it’s night or day
But please don’t put your life in the hands
Of a rock ‘n’ roll band
Who’ll throw it all away

I’m gonna start a revolution from my bed
‘Cause you said the brains I had went to my head
Step outside ’cause summertime’s in bloom
Stand up beside the fireplace
Take that look from off your face
‘Cause you ain’t ever gonna burn my heart out

And so Sally can wait
She knows it’s too late as she’s walking on by
My soul slides away
« But don’t look back in anger », I heard you say

So Sally can wait
She knows it’s too late as we’re walking on by
Her soul slides away
« But don’t look back in anger », I heard you say

So Sally can wait
She knows it’s too late as she’s walking on by
My soul slides away
« But don’t look back in anger, don’t look back in anger »
I heard you say

At least not today.
