There was a boy.
A very strange, enchanted boy.
They say he wandered very far,
Very far,
Over land and sea.
A little shy,
And sad of eye,
But very wise was he.
And then one day,
One magic day he passed my way.
And while we spoke of many things,
Fools and kings,
This he said to me:
The greatest thing
You'll ever learn
Is just to love
And be loved
In return.

    General CommentIdk if you've noticed this song is based off the book The Little Prince (Le Petite Prince) and is a really known book in France... Great read and perfect song. Loved Moulin Rouge and the song although written for something different is perfect for the movie...
