Chanson D’amour – Edith Piaf

Chanson d’amour, ra da da da da, play encore.
Here in my heart, ra da da da da, more and more.

Chanson d’amour, ra da da da da, je t’adore.
Each time I hear, ra da da da da, Chanson, chanson, d’amour.

(Sax solo)
Ra da da da da
(Sax solo)
Ra da da da da

Chanson d’amour, ra da da da da, je t’adore.
Each time I hear, ra da da da da, Chanson, chanson, d’amour.

Every time I hear
Chanson, chanson, d’amour.


The legendary singer Édith Piaf (real name Édith Giovanna Gassion) was born in the capital of France in 1915. Her father, Louis Gassion, was a street performer, and her mother, Annetta Maillard, was an actress but she did not succeed in her profession thought. Louis went to frontline at the very beginning of the World War I and pretty soon he found out that his wife dropped him and left the daughter with a grandmother.
