“La Vie en Rose” (lyrics in English)
Hold me close and hold me fast
The magic spell you cast
When you kiss me heaven sighs
And though I close my eyes
I see la vie en rose.
When you press me to your heart
I’m in a world apart
A world where roses bloom
And when you speak, angels sing from above
Everyday words seem to turn into love songs
Give your heart and soul to me
And life will always be la vie en rose.

A cover version in 1977 by Jamaican singer Grace Jones was also a successful international hit. “La Vie en rose” has been covered by several artists over the years, including a 1950 version by Louis Armstrong and a 1993 version by American singer Donna Summer.
