Nana Mouskouri - Ses baisers me grisaient (English translation)

English translation

I was drunk with his kisses

This young man had no clue about kisses
They said "Son, time for a change"
He found a blonde and kissed her
and he did it again right away.
 
'Cause oh Lord, he was drunk with her kisses
My God! Mmmm he was drunk with her kisses
 
He said "Would you please listen to me, darling?
Here is my hand, I'll be the best husband ever"
He pleaded his cause with his soul and life
so in the end she said yes.
 
'Cause oh Lord, he was drunk with her kisses
My God! Mmmm he was drunk with her kisses
 
He wanted to get married and have twelve children,
but the next day, as he came back from the fields
a green eyed brunette happened to walk by,
so he said "will you marry me?"
 
'Cause oh Lord, he was drunk with her kisses
My God! Mmmm he was drunk with her kisses
 
As he set forth for the wedding on his brown horse
he met a redhead girl on his way
Her skin was fresh and her nose snubbed
so he followed her without a glance back.
 
'Cause oh Lord, he was drunk with her kisses
My God! Mmmm he was drunk with her kisses
 
And time went by and he grew old
and the poor guy has no hair left now.
Still I know a lady who persist in loving him,
so, one day, he'll come back home.
 
'Cause oh Lord, he was drunk with her kisses
My God! Mmmm he was drunk with her kisses
