English Translation

From anywhere

Arm over arm

By singing songs
It is so good

To say soft words

Little things at all

But who say a lot
Seeing our delighted mine

Passers-by on the street envy us
\ N So Good

Watching in his eyes

A wonderful hope

Who gives the thrill
It is so good

This small sensation

It’s better than a million,

It is just so good.


French Lyrics

C’est si bon

De partir n’importe ou

Bras dessus bras dessous

En chantant des chansons
C’est si bon

De se dire des mots doux

Des petits rien du tout

Mais qui en disent long
En voyant notre mine ravie

Les passants dans la rue nous envient
\n C’est si bon

De guetter dans ses yeux

Un espoir merveilleux

Qui donne le frisson
C’est si bon

Cette petite sensation

Ca vaut mieux qu’un million,

c’est tell’ment, tell’ment bon.
