Marianne Faithfull – Mon Ami, My Friend lyrics
My madeleine of paris
She'll laugh and dance and sing
To cheer the weary soldier
At his homecoming

A little room together
An hour of love to spend
"comme ça, your arms around me,"
Oh, mon ami, my friend

But she, how she remembers
That other love and joy
The first, the best
The dearest tired soldier boy

A narrow room alone now
Rain on the roof above
And he will sleep forever
Oh, mon ami, my love

My madeleine of paris
She does not sit and grieve
But sings away her sorrows
To cheer the soldiers' leave

For life is short and funny
And love must have an end
An hour may be forever
Oh, mon ami, my friend

For life is short and funny
And love must have an end
An hour may be forever
Oh, mon ami, my friend

Thank you!
