La Vie En Rose

1945 Edith Piaf
English lyrics, Louis Armstrong

• Hold me close and hold me fast
The magic spell you cast
This is la vie en rose
• When you kiss me, heaven sighs
And though I close my eyes
I see la vie en rose
• When you press me to your heart
I’m in a world apart
A world where roses bloom
• And when you speak, angels, sing from above
Everyday words seem
To turn into love songs
• Give your heart and soul to me
And life will always be
La vie en rose
