There was a boy
A very strange, enchanted boy
They say he wandered very far, very far
Over land and sea

A little shy
And sad of eye
But very wise
Was he

And then one day
The magic day he passed my way
And while we spoke of many things
Fools and kings
This he said to me

"The greatest thing
You'll ever learn
Is just to love
And be loved
In return. "

The Moulin Rouge.
A nightclub.
A dancehall and a bardello.
Kingdom of night time pleasures.
Where the rich and powerful
Came to play with the young
And beautiful creatures of the underworld.
The most beautiful of all these was the woman I loved.
Satine.
A courtesan.
She sold her love to men.
They called her the sparkling diamond
And she was the star
Of the Moulin Rouge
