Grace Jones – La Vie En Rose Lyrics:
Des yeux qui font baisser les miens
Un rire qui se perd sur sa bouche
Voila le portrait sans retouche
De l’homme auquel j’appartiens

Quand il me prend dans ses bras
Il me parle tout bas
je vois la vie en rose

Il me dit des mon amour
des mots de tous le jours
Et ca me fait quelques choses

Il est entre dans mon coeur
Une part de bonheur
Dont je connais la cause

C est lui pour moi
Moi pour lui
dans la vie
Il me la dit ,La jure pour la vie

Et des que je l’apercois
Alors je sens en moi, mon coeur qui bat…

When he takes me in his arms
and whispers love to me
everything’s lovely
It’s him for me and me for him
all our lives
and it’s so real what I feel
this is why

Et des que je l’apercois
Alors je sens en moi,mon coeur qui bat…
la vie ………

La vie en rose,la vie en rose
ohhhhhhhh… vie
La vie en rose,

La vie en rose,la vie en rose
la vie en rose ,la vie en rose
la vie en rose , la vie en rose
la vie en rose, la vie en rose

Je taime voir tue joure…
