Bien des gens s'arr?tent
Et la voix ?mue
Sans fa?on r?p?tent
La chanson des rues

Dans la rue chaque soir
Un accord?on pr?lude
Dans la rue chaque soir
Au beau milieu du trottoir
Les passants s'arr?tent
Et reprennent en ch?ur
Le refrain que tout le monde sait par c?ur

Bien des gens s'arr?tent
Et la voix ?mue
Sans fa?on r?p?tent
La vieille chanson des rues

Modeste musique
Po?sie d'un sou
Mais cet air m?lancolique
Vous poursuit partout
On y parle de tristesse
De r?ves et d'amours d??us
Et du regret que vous laisse
Les ann?es qui ne sont plus

Bien des gens s'arr?tent
Et la voix ?mue
Sans fa?on r?p?tent
La triste chanson des rues
