Gilbert Bécaud – Nathalie lyrics

La Place Rouge tait vide
Devant moi marchait Nathalie
Elle avait un joli nom, mon guide

La Place Rouge tait blanche
La neige faisait un tapis
Et je suivait par ce froid dimanche

Elle parlait en phrases sobres
De la Rvolution d'Octobre
Je pensais dj
Qu'aprs le tombeau de Lnine
On irait au Caf Pouchkine
Boire un chocolat

La Place Rouge tait vide
Je lui pris son bras, elle a souri
Il avait des cheveux blonds, mon guide
Nathalie, Nathalie

Dans sa chambre, a l'universit
Une bande d'tudiants
L'attendait impatiemment
On a ri, on a beaucoup parl
Ils voulaient tout savoir
Nathalie traduisait

Moscou, les plaines de Krim
Et les Champs-Elyses
On a tout mlang et on a chant
Et puis, ils ont dbouch
En riant l'avance
Du champagne de France
Et on a dans

Et quand la chambre fut vide
Tous les amis taient partis
Je suis rest seul avec mon guide

Plus d'questions de phrases sobres
Ni d'au Rvolution d'Octobre
On n'en tait plus l
Fini le tombeau de Lnine
Le chocolat de chez Pouchkine
C'est, c'tait loin dj

Que ma vie me semble vide
Mais je sais qu'un jour Paris
C'est moi qui lui servirai de guide

    Red square was empty. Natalie led the way. She had a pretty name, my guide, natalie.
    Red square was white; snow lay like a carpet. I followed natalie on that cold sunday.
    She spoke in sombre tones about the october revolution. I was thinking that after lenin's tomb we would go to cafe pushkin to drink chocolate.
    Red square was empty. I took her arm and she smiled. She had blonde hair, my guide, natalie.
    In her room at the university a group of students were waiting impatiently. We laughed and talked a lot. They wanted to know everything (about me). Natalie translated.
    Moscow, the plains of the ukraine, and the champs-elysees; they were all blended together as we sang.
    And then they opened a bottle of french champagne, and we danced.
    When the friends had gone and the room was empty I was alone with my guide, natalie. No more sombre words. The october revolution, lenin's tomb, chocolate at pushkin's - they were already far away.
    Now my life seems empty, but I know that one day in paris I will be her guide.
