[Adam]
Chérie, votre langage me semble difficile.
Récemment, vous parliez dans un autre style
Et je ne peux faire confiance à vos mots d'amour
Que si vous les exprimez sans aucun détour.
[Adam & Virginie]
On veut toucher du doigt les belles promesses.
Avant la confiance, on voudrait les caresses.
[Adam]
Il paraît que mon charme a su vous séduire.
Alors, pourquoi ne pas me le faire mieux sentir ?

[Adam & Virginie]
No happiness is so complete
No happiness is so complete
As when from lips we love, come words so sweet.

[Virginie]
Je vois clairement qu'il faut vous contenter
Et faire tout comme vous le souhaitez.
Quand je sens vos brûlants désirs
Je ne vois d'autre issue que d'y consentir
Mais c'est peut-être un mal, une mauvaise pensée
Et c'est vous qui m'y aurez poussée.
Je dois rester... Irréprochable.
[Adam]
Bien sûr, Madame, je suis le seul coupable.

[Adam & Virginie]
No happiness is so complete
No happiness is so complete
As when from lips we love, come words so sweet.

[Virginie]
Mais comment puis-je accepter vos avances
Sans que le Ciel dont vous parlez toujours, n'y voit offense ?
[Adam]
Ne vous en faites pas ! Si ça ne tient qu'au Ciel
Je pourrai bien avoir le coup de pouce providentiel.

Certains plaisirs sont condamnables
Mais on peut s'arranger à l'amiable.
Avec sa conscience, il y a mille manières
De rendre nos âmes un peu plus légères.
[Virginie]
Aussi, peu importe une mauvaise action.
[Adam & Virginie]
Elle est rachetée par la pureté de l'intention.
[Adam]
Suivez donc mon désir ! Dites oui au plaisir !
Ne vous en privez pas ! Tout le mal est pour moi.

[Adam & Virginie]
No happiness is so complete
No happiness is so complete
As when from lips we love, come words so sweet.

So sweet... No happiness, no happiness... So sweet...
So sweet... No happiness, no happiness... So sweet...
So sweet... No happiness, no happiness... So sweet...
So sweet... No happiness, no happiness...
So sweet... No happiness, no happiness...
So sweet... No happiness, no happiness...

    General Comment[Adam]
    Darling, your language seems hard to me.
    Recently, you were talking in another style
    And I cannot confide in your words of love
    Only if you express them without any detour.
    [Adam & Virginie]
    We want to touch beautiful promises on our fingers.
    Before confidence, we would like cuddles.
    [Adam]
    It appears that my charm knew how to seduce you.
    So, why not make it feel better to me?

    [Adam & Virginie]
    No happiness is so complete
    No happiness is so complete
    As when from lips we love, come words so sweet.

    [Virginie]
    I clearly see you have to be satisfied
    And do everything as you wish.
    When I feel your burning desires
    I cannot find any other issue than accept them
    But it may be harm, a bad thought
    And you are the one who pushed me to that.
    I must remain... Irreproachable.
    [Adam]
    Of course, Madam, I am the only culprit.

    [Adam & Virginie]
    No happiness is so complete
    No happiness is so complete
    As when from lips we love, come words so sweet.

    [Virginie]
    But how can I accept your demands
    Without offending Heaven you talk so much of?
    [Adam]
    Don't worry! If that concerns Heaven
    I will be able to have the providential help.

    Some pleasures are condemnable
    But we can make an amical arrangement.
    With its conscience, there are thousands of manners
    To make our souls a little lighter.
    [Virginie]
    Also, no matter a bad action.
    [Adam & Virginie]
    It is bought back by the purity of intention.
    [Adam]
    So, follow my desire! Say yes to pleasure!
    Do not abstain! All the sin is upon me.

    [Adam & Virginie]
    No happiness is so complete
    No happiness is so complete
    As when from lips we love, come words so sweet.

    So sweet... No happiness, no happiness... So sweet...
    So sweet... No happiness, no happiness... So sweet...
    So sweet... No happiness, no happiness... So sweet...
    So sweet... No happiness, no happiness...
    So sweet... No happiness, no happiness...
    So sweet... No happiness, no happiness...

    FYI, it is based on a part from Molière's play, Tartuffe. Act IV, scene 5. Tartuffe, the hypocritical religious devotee, attempts to seduce Elmire, Orgon's wife.

    Directed by Jean-Marc Joseph, the video is in black and white, with Adam playing a man in white suit and Virginie playing a woman in white coat. The outside scenes were actually shot inside.
