Elle jouait du piano tous les soirs а sept heuresDes valses de chopin, des marches militairesDes airs qui avaient fait un jour battre son coeurSon rйpertoire datait d’la premiиre guerreShe was playing piano every night at sevenWaltzes from chopin, military marchesMusics that once made her heart beatHer repertoire was from the first war (wwi)On ne la voyait jamais, exceptй le matinQuand elle sortait chercher son journal et du painElle habitait l’appartement au-dessus du mienMais elle ne saluait jamais ses voisinsWe never saw her, but in the morningWhen she was going out to get he paper and some breadShe lived in the apartment upstairs from mineBut she never said hello to her neighboursL’hiver c’йtait comme un fantфme dans la maisonMais quand revenait le temps de la belle saisonElle ouvrait sa fenкtre comme on ouvre son coeurPour jouer du piano le soir а sept heuresIn winter she was like a ghost in the houseBut when was coming back the time of the beautiful seasonShe opened her windows like we open our heartTo play piano at night, at sevenMais un beau soir d’йtй, oщ il faisait si chaudElle s’est arrкtйe au milieu d’un tangoElle n’avait pas йtй victime d’une saute d’humeurElle йtait morte d’un arrкt du coeurBut one summer night, when it was so warmShe stopped playing in the middle of a tangoShe wasn’t victim of a bad moodShe was died of a heart attackEt comme elle n’avait pas laissй de testamentUn jour on a vendu ses affaires aux enchиresJe ne sais pas pourquoi moi qui n’en jouait guиreJ’ai achetй pour moi le vieil instrumentAnd since she left no willOne day they sold her belongings by aunctionI don’t know why me who didn’t play muchI bought for myself the old instrumentJ’en joue dйjа pas mal, je sais dйjа par coeurAu moins vingt-cinq chansons de lennon-mccartneyEt quand je serai vieille seule et abandonnйeJe me les jouerai tous les soirs а sept heuresI play of it not badly already, I already know by heartAt least twenty-five songs from lennon-mccartneyAnd when I’ll be old, alone and abandonnedI’ll play them for myself every night at sevenJe me les jouerai tous les soirs а sept heuresI’ll play them for myself every night at seven
