“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.


“La Vie en rose” (French pronunciation: ​[la vi ɑ̃ ʁoz]) was the signature song of popular French singer Édith Piaf, written in 1945,[2] popularized in 1946, and released as a single in 1947. The song became very popular in the USA in 1950 with no less than seven different versions reaching the Billboard charts. 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. Harry James recorded a version in 1950 on Columbia 38768.
