Ngana and Jerome:

Dites-moi
Pourquoi
La vie est belle,
Dies-moi
Pourquoi
La vie est gai,
Dites-moi
Pourquoi,
Chere Mad'moiselle,
Est-ce que
Parce que
Vous m'aimez?

Dites-moi
Pourquoi,
Chere Mad'moiselle,
Est-ce que
Parce que
Vous m'aimez?

English Version
NOT ON THE OCR

Tell me why
The sky is filled with music,
Tell me why
We fly on clouds above
Can it be
That we
Can fly to music
Just because,
Just because
We're in love

    It doesn't say translation - it says version. Songs often have completely different lyrics when they are written in a different language, so that they "scan" better, and perhaps even rhyme.

    That's a dreadful translation! See below for correct translation (line for line)!!!

    Tell me
    Why
    Life is beautiful,
    Tell me
    Why
    Like is happy,
    Tell me
    Why
    Dear lady,
    Could it be
    Because
    You love me?
