Charles Trenet – La Bonne Planète


Martin Zarzar – Petite Fleur

Petite Fleur

“I have hidden
Better than anywhere else
In the garden of my heart
A little flower

This flower
Prettier than a bouquet
It secretly keeps
All my childish dreams
And the love of my parents
And all these clear mornings
Made of happy distant memories

When life
At times betrays me
You remain my happiness
Little flower

If I could
Recall my twenties for a moment
To breath
This perfume that I loved so much

In my heart
You will always bloom
In the grand garden of love
Little flower

Take this gift
That I always kept
Even when I was twenty
I have never given it away

Don’t be afraid
Plucked from the bottom of one’s heart
A little flower
Never dies”

Here’s a more original style version, a wonderful old Mouloudji chanson version & quiet sad but beautiful James Dean homage … enjoy!
