Hold me close and hold me fast The magic spell you cast This is la vie en rose
When you kiss me, Heaven sighs And though I close my eyes I see la vie en rose
When you press me to your heart And in a world apart A world where roses bloom
And when you speak Angels sing from above Every day words Seems to turn into love songs
Give your heart and soul to me And life will always be La vie en rose
