Paroles pour Chansons: Song Lyrics I Translated From French

I am a strange person with strange taste in music. I don't speak French very well, and I've never been to France, but I love French music. It started when I got my first Vanessa Paradis record something like 20 years ago. It baffles me that, even though American music, in English is popular all around the world, music from other countries very, very rarely makes it big here. Sure, there are a few exceptions. Shakira and Mari-Mai both charted recently, although only their songs in English made it big: 'Wherever, Whenever' and 'Do You', respectively, even though those were hardly their best songs.

In an effort to promote world music I'm going to translate some of my favorite French songs to English for you. Please keep it in mind that my French isn't perfect, and these are not word-for-word translations. It doesn't help that there are a lot of words in French that don't have an English counterpart that means exactly the same thing. If you want word-for-word, try Babel Fish, because god knows that always works out well.
