"Tous les Garçons et les Filles" as written by and Hardy....
Tous les garçons et les filles de mon âge
Se promènent dans la rue deux par deux,
Tous les garçons et les filles de mon âge
Savent bien ce que see'est d'être heureux,
Et les yeux dans les yeux, et la main dans la main,
Ils s'en vont amoureux sans peur do lendemain.
Oui mais moi, je vais seule par les rues, l'âme en peine,
Oui mais moi, je vais seule, car personne ne m'aime.

Mes jours comme mes nuits sont en tous points pareils,
Sans joies et pleins d'ennuis personne ne murmure
"je t'aime" à mon oreille.

Tous les garçons et les filles de mon âge
Font ensemble des projets d'avenir,
Tous les garçons et les filles de mon âge
Savent très bien ce qu'aimer veut dire,
Et les yeux dans les yeux, et la main dans la main,
Ils s'en vont amoureux sans peur do lendemain.
Oui mais moi, je vais seule par les rues, l'âme en peine,
Oui mais moi, je vais seule, car personne ne m'aime.

Mes jours comme mes nuits sont en tous points pareils,
Sans joies et pleins d'ennuis oh! quand pour moi
Brillera le soleil?

Comme les garçons et les filles de mon âge
Connaîtrais-je bientôt ce qu'est l'amour?
Comme les garçons et les filles de mon âge
Je me demande quand viendra le jour,
Où les yeux dans ses yeux, et la main dans sa main,
J'aurai le coeur heureux sans peur do lendemain.
Le jour où je n'aurai plus do tout l'âme en peine,
Le jour où moi aussi j'aurai quelqu'un qui m'aime.

    General CommentQuick translation without changing much to put it in less stilted English (never too much of a problem, though):

    All of the boys and girls of my age
    Walk together in the street two by two
    All of the boys and girl of my age
    Know well what it is to be happy

    And eyes in eyes and hand in hand
    They go together in love without fear of the following day
    Yes but I, I go alone in the streets, the soul in pain
    Yes but I, I go alone, because no one loves me

    My days like my nights
    Are in all alike situations
    Without joys and full of problems
    No one whispers "I love you" in my ear

    All of the boys and girls of my age
    Make plans for the future together
    All of the boys and girls of my age
    Know very well it means to love

    And eyes in eyes and hand in hand
    They go together in love without fear of the following day
    Yes but I, I go alone in the streets, the soul in pain
    Yes but I, I go alone, because no one loves me

    My days like my nights
    Are in all alike situations
    Without joys and full of problems
    Oh! So when will the sun shine for me?

    Like the boys and girls of my age
    Will I know soon what love is?
    Like the boys and girls of my age
    I ask myself when the day will come

    When eyes in eyes and hand in hand
    I will have a happy heart without fear of the following day
    The day when I will not have a soul in pain anymore
    The day when I too, I will have someone who loves me

    ------------------------

    Sounds standard in English and sans music. In French and with that perfectly tight melody where all of the instruments and Hardy's voice mesh together perfectly, it's devastating.

    I do love the way the lyrics shuffle around throughout the song. Most strikingly, she eventually acknowledges the fact that others, even those supposedly joyous people she envies, are feeling just as uncertain about their lives (switching from "tous les garçons..." to "commes les garçons").

    It might be a jaunty little number, but it really does bring on the sadness.

    General CommentOh, and I just noticed that I messed up in one space (maybe others too, but I haven't thought about them yet).

    In the last piece about "eyes in eyes", it's "When eyes in eyes and hand in HIS/HER hand", not just "hand in hand" again.
