Aldebert - La vie, c'est quoi? (English translation)

English translation

What is life?

What is the music?
It's sound that perfumes
What is emotion?
It's the soul that lights up
What is a compliment?
An invisible kiss
And nostalgia? The edible past
What is carelessness?
It's time we sow
What's the good time?
It's your hand in mine
 
What is enthusiasm?
It's dreams that militate
And benevolence?
Angels who invite themselves
And what is hope?
Happiness waiting
And a rainbow?
A living monument
What is growing?
It's making first times
And what is childhood?
Tenderness in pajamas
 
But tell dad, what is life?
Little, you see
Life is a little bit of all that but most of all it's you
It's you
 
What is remorse?
It's a ghost who loiter
And the routine?
The cravings that go wrong
What is the essential?
It is always to believe
And a memory?
A drawing on the memory
What's a smile?
It's wind in the sails
And poetry?
A landing net with stars
 
What is indifference?
It's life without colors
And what is racism?
An infirmity of the heart
What is friendship?
It's a treasure island
And truancy?
A croak-paw at Pythagoras
What is wisdom?
It's Tin-Tin in Tibet
What is happiness?
It's now or never
 
But tell dad, what is life?
Little, you see
Life is a little bit of all that but most of all it's you
It's you
 
In your stories,
In your delusions,
In the fanfares of your giggles
Life is there, life is there
In our cupboard
In hoping to see you growing old
Life is there, life is there
