La lune trop blкme pose un diadиme sur tes cheveux roux
La lune trop rousse de gloire йclabousse ton jupon plein d'trous
La lune trop pвle caresse l'opale de tes yeux blasйs
Princesse de la rue soit la bienvenue dans mon coeur brisй

The stairways up to la butte can make the wretched sigh
while windmill wings of the moulin shelter you and I

Petite mandigotte je sens ta menotte qui cherche ma main
Je sens ta poitrine et ta taille fine
J'oublie mon chagrin
Je sens sur tes lиvres une odeur de fiиvre de gosse mal nourri
Et sous ta caresse je sens une ivresse qui m'anйantit

The stairways up to la butte can make the wretched sigh
while windmill wings of the moulin shelter you and I

Et voila qu'elle trotte la lune qui flotte, la princesse aussi
La da da da da da da da da da
Mes rкves йpanouis

Les escaliers de la butte sont durs aux misйreux
Les ailes du moulin protиgent les amoureux

    I really like this song, because it fits quite well along with the story of moulin rouge.. It is about a man who falls in love with a prostitute, much like roxanne.
