Comme tous ceux qui veulent apprendre apprennent à aimer plus tôt... Éa... Éo...
(As everyone who want to learn, learn to love sooner)
Quand le désir s'achemine, leur sourire s'illumine d'une étincelle d'amour... Éa... Éo...
(When desire finds its way, their smile starts to shine with the spark of love)
Cette sensation divine peut dominer qui domine et ramener les beaux jours... Éa... Éo...
(It's a divine sensation that can lead those who lead and bring back a better day)

En somme pour changer la vie (To sum it up, in order to change life)
on soustrait ce qui divise (one should substract what is dividing)
et on multiplie l'amour (and multiply love)
C'est toujours au goût des lèvres (It's always by tasting lips)
qu'il faut repêcher les rêves (that one should save the dreams)
que la peur jetait à l'eau... (that fear would drown)
