Soundtracks – Rufus Wainwright - La Complainte De La Butte lyrics

La lune trop bl¨ºme
Pose un diad¨¨me
Sur tes cheveux roux
La lune trop rousse
De gloire ¨¦clabousse
Ton jupon plein trous
La lune trop pâle
Caresse l'opale
De tes yeux blas¨¦s
Princesse de la rue
Soit la bienvenue
Dans mon coeur bless¨¦
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 l¨¨vres
Une odeur de fi¨¨vre
De gosse mal nourrie
Et sous ta caresse
Je sens une ivresse
Qui m'an¨¦antit

The stairways up to la butte
Can make the wretched sigh
While windmill wings
Of the moulin
Shelter you and I

Mais voil¨¤ qu'il flotte
La lune qu'il flotte
La princesse aussi
La la la la la
La la la la la
Mon r¨ºve ¨¦vanoui

Les escaliers de la butte
Sont durs aux mis¨¦reux
Les ailes des moulins
Prot¨¨gent les amoureux
