Dans ma vie le plein soleil (The sunshine of my days)
c'est la joie de ton sourire (is in the joy of your smile)
Pas a  pas de jour en jour (step by step and day by day)
c'est si bon te voir grandir (it's so good to see you grow)
Ton regard est la lumieere (your gaze is the light)
ou mes yeux apprennent a lire (by which my eyes learn how to read)
Ton bonheur fait toujours mon bonheur (your happiness is always my happiness)
c'est le c?ur de ma vie... (it's the heart of my life)

Le soleil d�©j�  se sauve (The sun is getting away)
Les �©toiles bient�´t vont luire (soon the stars are going to shine)
Il fait nuit, le ciel est mauve (it's night, the sky is purple)
quand la lune va s'ouvrir (when the moon is about to shine)
Et la paix de ton sommeil (And your peaceful sleep)
est comme l'air que je respire (is like the air that I breathe)
Ton bonheur fait toujours mon bonheur (your happiness is always my happiness)
c'est ma raison de vivre... (it's the purpose of my life)
