Do You Sing English?

 
Baby I don’t care
 
I live my life like I want
Straight on my way
I can live everywhere
Baby I don’t care
I want to travel the world
Going where I want
To feel free
To dance and sing
Every time I need
 
 
Refrain;
 
You can come with me or not
Like you want 
It’s your choice
It’s my voice
I let you free anyway 
 
If you like to travel with me 
I’m happy
You stay with me  
If you wish my Baby
You know I love you so
But I have my dream to follow 
 
I write my way like I feel
 I fly over hills
 I can settle one day
Baby I don’t care
 I want to sing like a bird
 Choosing all my words     
 To enjoy
 To play on stage
 Whatever my age

Your eyes
 
Your eyes
Are reflecting your sweetness
They cherish me and I can guess
How pretty they are
How precious they are
 
Your eyes
Are singing sweet tunes to my heart
Are sending kind and cherished glance
They're showing our stunning romance
Like a wand
..............................................
Refrain;
 
In
Your eyes I guess
Thousand stars so precious
Really gorgeous
Your eyes
They gaze on my body
Move me deeply
I feel so lucky
................................................
Your eyes
When I think I realise
They carry me to Paradise
Fancy them Darling
On my life shining
Your eyes
Caring, they hug me and I feel
Pleasure under my skin
Your eyes
I'm fond of them sweetly
Your eyes
Are a wand
 
Refrain...
 
In your eyes
I Realise
Big surprise
I'm not wise
In your eyes
Your lovely
Eyes
 
In your eyes
sparkling eyes
realised
I'm so glad
In your eyes

Broken heart

You were so pretty

We were so happy,

Now I’m sorry,

And I feel lonely.

I can’t understand

I will never find,

Why you changed your mind

With our love behind.

 

Refrain ;

 

Our love is dead

Something in my head

Lights my sorrow,

Makes me so low!
 

My heart is broken

You have chosen

And I realize;

I’ (ha)ve tears in my eyes!

 

I’m a single lover

Always bad temper’,

I’m not so cool;

I’m like a fool.

I need you still

So bad I feel

I think about you,

So sad without you.

 

Refrain

 

(I ‘m) still waiting for you

(I) can’t live without you,

I hope you miss me

And you feel sorry!

 

Refrain

................................................................................................

Step by step

 

Slowly, I’m trying to grow

I may find my future

Step by step I go ahead

Softly, I follow my way.

 

Step by step, always higher

Toward another life,

Oh I’m so chatty

On the way to new story.

 

Step by step like a dancer

Tripping on danc’ step

Gently I’m creeping

Into another world.

 

Between friendly words

I build another sentence

I don’t know everything,

I guess I‘m still learning.

 

Slowly, I’m going further

On the way to meet myself,

Step by step I’m growing

Starting to see a new life.

 

Word by word I ‘m improving

I know I’m changing,

Slowly I guess I progress

I ‘m growing, It’s a chance.

 

Step by step like a dancer

Tripping on danc’ step

Gently, I’m creeping

Into my other world.

 

Between friendly words

I build another sentence,

Bit by bit I become myself

Step by step, I feel at home…

Naughty Nightmare


 

I feel so lonely day after day

Around me everything is grey

My lovely hours are behind

I feel so sad and depressed


 

I have giving all and better

I ‘m fed up and bitter

It’s so hard the way I feel

I can’t find a way to heal


 

It was such a naughty nightmare

I felt so down and depressed

It tickled me in my sleep

And disturbed me so deep


 

It was such a naughty nightmare

Lost with my tears on my face

It has flooded all my soul

And I realised I was a fool


 

My best hours seem behind me

I feel so old and crazy

I belong to the flowing past

Life is going much too fast


 

I thought I was still pretty

But I realise I’m quite mouldy

I' ve woken up so tired

Hard for me to face my head


 

It was such an ugly nightmare

Worse than I have had ever

Early morning it is still here

Into my eyes and my ears


 

But all that bad dream was wrong

I still have my life along

I must follow my way quickly

Before falling into purgatory

I’m dreaming


First call

For African slaves survival

Deep music Black song,

famous rhythmic 


Refrain;

 

I’m dreaming on famous jazzy tunes,

Some tunes,

From Glenn Miller

I’m dreaming on lovely music blues

For ever

 With “Fever”


Start In United States

Mister Jazz has travelled

And changed

Black and white mixed together  

To share

 Different colours and more taste  

 To give to our heart the best

  
Refrain


I can hear,

So often hear

Mister Louis Armstrong playing his music

Fantastic

So poetic;

When I feel lonely

So lonely

And useless

Mr. Jazz brings me some

Happiness

 

Refrain

Under the moon,  

Cloudy afternoon

  I sometimes sing jazzy famous songs

Spicy      

  And for me  

 Blues is shining into my heart  

Peggy Lee or Aretha

They’re my only Diva(s) 


Refrain


Never ends  

Never pretends  

Mister Blues comes from our lives

(I) realise

When I’m sad

Sometimes so bad

Swing brings me to the top

Thanks to that every day I hope 
Refrain; I feel Blues never lies

And brings lights into my eyes


Refrain;

I need you 


Together it was not so easy

I was not always lovely

 I used to disagree with you

And I was losing my temper too, 


But next to you I stayed

 In hospital with you

I pried But for your last breath

 I was away, not bad faith


After the phone call, I realise

Of course I apologise

I really needed to come up for air

It was too late it was so unfair

 

Refrain;

Last August you left me for ever

And I will always remember

You and me it was so strong

Even if sometimes I have been wrong

 
Why did you leave me so quickly?

I still need you my daddy 


I need, need, need you

Above all I need, need,

need you I feel so lonely

Now from the sky you follow me

I want you to be proud of me


Why did you leave me so quickly?

I still need you my daddy 


When you went to the sky

I wondered why

I felt so guilty

And also very empty
Just after I have tried to go away

I have tried to forget this bad day

But I will never be able to forget

You are always in my heart, in my head

Refrain…


I have been so weak and lost without you
But I know you would like me to amaze you

And now I’m fighting against me

I want you to be proud of me, Daddy 
I will never forget you, daddy

I know you would like to see me

Becoming stronger and stronger

For you, I will be a fighter

For you, I will be a winner…

 

Refrain

 

Last August you left me for ever

And I will always remember

You and me it was so strong

Even if sometimes I was wrong  
Why did you leave me so quickly?

I still need you my daddy 
I need, need, need you

Above all I need, need,

need you I feel so lonely

Now from the sky you follow me

I want you to be proud of me
Why did you leave me so quickly?

I still need you my daddy 
I need, need you for ever For ever…

.............................................................................

Big noise

 

I was living in a bungalow

In a village next to Chicago

And sometimes in the evening

Outside, fed up, I was crying

 

I will never forget, that night

I heard a noise around midnight

I ran quickly to discover

What could be this noise over there?

 

That big noise came from Winnetka

Such a wonderful nostalgia

Unusual and heady topic

Amazing and loud music

 

Bob and Ray were so desperate

They were in an unusual state

And they created that music

Hey! Since that I sing, sing, on it!

 

More and more people were arriving

And we were all moving, dancing,

On that sweet and happy music

We were feeling so enthusiastic!

 

One of the men was playing drums

And the other one double bass

Was whistling and enjoying;

They were so pleased giving…

 

Refrain

 

It was feeling like (to be) in a dream

They were a gorgeous and nice team

Thanks to them, I sang all night long

And they carried my soul beyond

 

That music (is) a good medication

Better than prayers (or) meditation

That music has improved my life

This music has improved our lives…

American dream 

 

 

You must find a way to get money,

There is no place for your piety,

There is no place for illness

There is no place for lazyness,

You must go on like a star

Never  go down too far,

Don't think too much

Don't lay too much,

You are nothing for them

Except if you are with them,

And if you have a lot of money

If you can spend a lot of money...

 

Where's  the American dream?

Where is the winning team?

It's not a place for losers,

Only a place for winners,

Here you rise or you die,

Here you climb and you lie,

There is no place for losers

Only a place for winners, 

 

Who are they???

Where are they???

They are somewhere in the sun

Hiding their money, having fun,

They have some much power

We can't reach them anyway...

But they don' t make me dream anymore

We are not listening  them anymore...

They are not honest for us

They don't want to help us,

Now we have  realized

We don't believe their  lies...

Where's  the American dream?

Where is the winning team?

It's not a dream for losers,

Only a dream for winners,

Here you rise or you die,

Here you climb and you lie,

There is no place for losers

Only a place for winners...

Where's  the American dream?

Where is the winning team?
