parfum d’été
sur le pont d’Avignon
bras enlaçant

parfum d’été
séduire
tous les sens

sur le pont d’Avignon
on y danse
tous en rond

bras enlaçant
désir muet sur ses lèvres
regard sur le Rhône

summer’s fragrance
on the bridge of Avignon
arms entangled

perfume Summer
seducing
every sense

on the bridge of Avignon
dancing
round and round

arms entangled
silent desire on lips
gazing on the Rhone

    chanson de
    mon enfance

    hey remember this one
    au clair de la lune
    j’ai pete dans l’eau
    ca faisait des bulles
    c’etait rigolo

    Implies the desire to confess feelings of love while gazing the distance. Great lines and translation Cheryl!

    1. I translate it all the same as many don`t think of Google translate and it is never perfect…but pretty good…I wanted to do the troiku justice in English too 🙂
