La Place Rouge йtait vide
Devant moi marchait Nathalie
Il avait un joli nom, mon guide:
Nathalie...
La place Rouge йtait blanche
La neige faisait un tapis
Et je suivais par ce froid dimanche
Nathalie...
Elle parlait en phrases sobres
De la Rйvolution d'Octobre
Je pensais dйjа
Qu'aprиs le tombeau de Lйnine
On irait au cafй Pouchkine
Boire un chocolat...
La place Rouge йtait vide
Je lui pris son bras, elle a souri
Il avait des cheveux blonds, mon guide
Nathalie... Nathalie
Dans sa chambre а l'universitй
Une bande d'йtudiants
L'attendait impatiemment
On a ri, on a beaucoup parlй
Ils voulaient tout savoir, Nathalie traduisait
Moscou, les plaines d'Ukraine,
Et les Champs-Йlysйes
On a tout mйlangй et on a chantй
Et puis ils ont dйbouchй
En riant а l'avance
Du champagne de France
Et on a dansй...
La, la la...
Et quand la chambre fut vide
Tous les amis йtaient partis
Je suis restй seul avec mon guide,
Nathalie...
Plus question de phrases sobres
Ni de rйvolution d'octobre
On n'en йtait plus lа
Fini le tombeau de Lйnine
Le chocolat de chez Pouchkine
C'йtait loin dйjа...
Que ma vie me semble vide
Mais je sais qu'un jour а Paris
C'est moi qui lui servirai de guide,
Nathalie... Nathalie

    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.
    Natalie.
