Les champs Elysées

By Joe Dassin.
It is a very old famous French one. The story takes place in Paris, on the famous avenue Les champs élysées.

Je m’baladais sur l’avenue le cœur ouvert à l’inconnu
J’avais envie de dire bonjour à n’importe qui
N’importe qui et ce fut toi, je t’ai dit n’importe quoi
Il suffisait de te parler, pour t’apprivoiser

Aux Champs-Elysées, aux Champs-Elysées
Au soleil, sous la pluie, à midi ou à minuit
Il y a tout ce que vous voulez aux Champs-Elysées

Tu m’as dit “J’ai rendez-vous dans un sous-sol avec des fous
Qui vivent la guitare à la main, du soir au matin”
Alors je t’ai accompagnée, on a chanté, on a dansé
Et l’on n’a même pas pensé à s’embrasser

Aux Champs-Elysées, aux Champs-Elysées
Au soleil, sous la pluie, à midi ou à minuit
Il y a tout ce que vous voulez aux Champs-Elysées

Hier soir, deux inconnus et ce matin sur l’avenue
Deux amoureux tout étourdis par la longue nuit

Et de l’Étoile à la Concorde, un orchestre à mille cordes
Tous les oiseaux du point du jour chantent l’amour

Aux Champs-Elysées, aux Champs-Elysées
Au soleil, sous la pluie, à midi ou à minuit
Il y a tout ce que vous voulez aux Champs-Elysées

Aux Champs-Elysées, aux Champs-Elysées
Au soleil, sous la pluie, à midi ou à minuit
Il y a tout ce que vous voulez aux Champs-Elysées

Aux Champs-Elysées, aux Champs-Elysées
Au soleil, sous la pluie, à midi ou à minuit

Among the songs, another one

Papaoutai

By Stromae.

Dites-moi d’où il vient
Enfin je saurai où je vais
Maman dit que lorsqu’on cherche bien
On finit toujours par trouver
Elle dit qu’il n’est jamais très loin
Qu’il part très souvent travailler
Maman dit « Travailler c’est bien »
Bien mieux qu’être mal accompagné!
Pas vrai?Où est ton papa?
Dis-moi, où est ton papa?
Sans même devoir lui parler
Il sait ce qu’il ne va pas
Un sacré papa
Dis-moi où es-tu caché?
Ça doit faire au moins mille fois
Que j’ai compté mes doigts

Hé Où t’es? Papa où t’es?
Où t’es? Papa où t’es?
Où t’es? Papa où t’es?
Où t’es? Où t’es? Où Papa où t’es?
Où t’es? Papa où t’es?
Où t’es? Papa où t’es?
Où t’es? Papa où t’es?
Où t’es? Où t’es? Où Papa où t’es?Où t’es?

Quoi, qu’on y croit ou pas
Il y aura bien un jour où on n’y croira plus
Un jour où l’autre on sera tous papa
Et d’un jour à l’autre, on aura disparu
Serons-nous détestables?
Serons-nous admirables?
Des géniteurs ou des génies
Dites-nous qui donne naissance aux irresponsables?
Ah, dites-nous qui, tiens
Tout le monde sait comment on fait des bébés
Mais personne ne sait comment on fait des papas
Monsieur je sais tout en aurait hérité, c’est ça?
Il faut le sucer de son pouce où quoi?
Dites-nous où c’est caché?
Ça doit faire au moins mille fois
Qu’on a bouffé nos doigts

HéOù t’es? Papa où t’es?
Où t’es? Papa où t’es?
Où t’es? Papa où t’es?
Où t’es? Où t’es? Où Papa où t’es?
Où t’es? Papa où t’es?
Où t’es? Papa où t’es?
Où t’es? Papa où t’es?
Où t’es? Où t’es? Où Papa où t’es?Où t’es?Où est ton papa?

Dis-moi, où est ton papa?
Sans même devoir lui parler
Il sait ce qu’il ne va pas
Un sacré papa
Dis-moi où es-tu caché?
Ça doit faire au moins mille fois
Que j’ai compté mes doigts
Où est ton papa?
Dis-moi, où est ton papa?
Sans même devoir lui parler
Il sait ce qu’il ne va pas
Un sacré papa
Dis-moi où es-tu caché?
Ça doit faire au moins mille fois
Que j’ai compté mes doigts

HéOù t’es? Papa où t’es?
Où t’es? Papa où t’es?
Où t’es? Papa où t’es?
Où t’es? Où t’es? Où Papa où t’es?
Où t’es? Papa où t’es?
Où t’es? Papa où t’es?
Où t’es? Papa où t’es?
