Milord: Edith Piaf

(refrain) Allez, venez, Milord
Vous asseoir à ma table
Il fait si froid dehors,
Ici c’est confortable
Laissez-vous faire, Milord
Et prenez bien vos aises
Vos peines sur mon coeur
Et vos pieds sur une chaise
Je vous connais, Milord
Vous n’m’avez jamais vue
Je ne suis qu’une fille du port
Qu’une ombre de la rue…

Pourtant j’vous ai frôlé
Quand vous passiez hier
Vous n’étiez pas peu fier
Dame! Le ciel vous comblait

Votre foulard de soie
Flottant sur vos épaules
Vous aviez le beau rôle
On aurait dit le roi…

Vous marchiez en vainqueur
Au bras d’une demoiselle
Mon Dieu, qu’elle était belle !
J’en ai froid dans le coeur

(refrain)

Dire qu’il suffit parfois
Qu’il y ait un navire
Pour que tout se déchire
Quand le navire s’en va

Il emmenait avec lui
La douce aux yeux si tendres
Qui n’a pas su comprendre
Qu’elle brisait votre vie

L’amour, ça fait pleurer
Comme quoi l’existence
Ça vous donne toutes les chances
Pour les reprendre après

Allez, venez, Milord !
Vous avez l’air d’un môme
Laissez-vous faire, Milord
Venez dans mon royaume

Je soigne les remords
Je chante la romance
Je chante les milords
Qui n’ont pas eu de chance !

Regardez-moi, Milord
Vous n’m’avez jamais vue…
Mais vous pleurez, Milord ?
Ça, je l’aurai jamais cru

Eh ben, voyons, Milord !
Souriez-moi, Milord !
Mieux qu’ça! Un petit effort…
Voilà, c’est ça !
Allez, riez, Milord !
Allez, chantez, Milord !
La-la-la… Mais oui, dansez, Milord !
La-la-la… Bravo, Milord !
La-la-la… Encore, Milord!… La-la-la…

(chorus)
Come along, Milord!
Sit at my table;
It is so cold, outside,
Here it’s comfortable.
Relax, Milord
And make yourself at ease,
Your troubles on my heart
And your feet on a chair
I know you, Milord,
You’ve never seen me,
I’m just a girl from the docks,
Just a shadow of the street…

Yet, I crossed you,
While you were passing yesterday,
You were so proud,
God! The sky made you perfect:

Your silk scarf
Floating on your shoulders,
You were so beautiful
You could have been mistaken for the king…
You were walking victoriously

A woman on your arm,
My God! … How beautiful she was…
It makes my blood run cold…

(chorus)

Sometimes it’s just enough
For there to be a boat
To make everything fall apart
When the boat leaves…
It brought away with it
The sweet girl with the tender eyes
Who didn’t understand
She was ruining your life
Love, makes one cry
And life
Gives you all your chances
To take them back afterwards…

Come along, Milord!
You look like a kid!
Relax, Milord,
Come into my kingdom:
I heal remorse,
I sing romance,
I sing about milords,
who are unlucky!
Look at me, Milord,
You’ve never seen me before…
…But…You’re crying, Milord?
That…I would never have believed it!…

Ah, well, there there, Milord!
Smile at me, Milord!
…Better than that! A bit of effort…
There we are!
Come along, laugh, Milord!
Come along, sing, Milord!
La-la-la…
Yes, dance, Milord!
La-la-la… Bravo Milord!
La-la-la… Encore Milord! … La-la-la…
