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 c'est d'être heureux

et les yeux dans les yeux et la main dans la main
ils s'en vont amoureux sans peur du 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 du 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 donc 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 du lendemain
le jour où je n'aurai plus du tout l'âme en peine
le jour où moi aussi j'aurai quelqu'un qui m'aime



and translated in englais:

Find Me A Boy



so many friends that I happen to see
have been steadily falling in love
oh how I wish it could happen to me
and I'm asking the stars up above

won't you find me a boy, just a nice looking boy
who will show me the way, who will teach me to say
"I love you, yes I do", and who'll promise me too
that he'll always be true, so that I'll never be blue

I just wish for a gentle boy
someone who's sweet and kind
just a nice sentimental boy
that's all that I'm really longing to find

so many friends that I happen to see
have been telling me all about love
oh how I wish it could happen to me
is the only thing I'm thinking of

so I'll find me a boy, just a nice looking boy
who will show me the way, who will teach me to say
"I love you, yes I do", and who'll promise me too
that he'll always be true, so that I'll never be blue

so I'll find me a boy, just a nice looking boy
who will show me the way, who will teach me to say
"I love you, yes I do", and who'll promise me too
that he'll always be true, so that I'll never be blue

    General CommentHere is a rough, but more accurate translation:

    Tout Les Garçons et Les Filles
    (All the Boys and Girls)

    All the boys and girls my age
    Take a walk in the street, two by two
    All the boys and girls my age
    Know that this is to be happy
    Their eyes on their eyes, hand in hand
    They leave in love without fear of tomorrow
    Yes, but me, I walk the streets alone, soul in pain
    With no one to love me
    With no one to whisper “I love you”
    In my ear
    All the boys and girls my age
    Plan their futures
    All the boys and girls my age
    Know well what to say
    Their eyes on their eyes, hand in hand
    They leave in love without fear of tomorrow
    Yes, but I walk the streets alone, soul in pain
    Yes, but I have no one to love me
    My days like my nights
    Are all similar, without joy and a lot of boredom
    Oh! When will the sun
    Shine for me?
    Like the boys and girls my age
    Will I soon know what it is to love?
    Like the boys and girls my age
    I wonder when that day will come
    My eyes on his eyes, hand in his hand
    I will have a happy heart without fear of tomorrow
    There will be a day my soul is without pain
    And I will have someone that loves me.

    General CommentAside from the wretched translation, it is, as Ms. Palmer states, a song about being lonely.
    Ah, the pains of being by oneself.

    General CommentBut now I am curious as to where the translation came from. I wonder if it's an actual song.

    General Commenti'm sure whoever "translated" origanally just used a translator becuase i got C's in French and could translate it better =D
    But this is in fact a delecitably delisous song
    (god i can't spell)
