about

This is a nod to Serge Gainsbourg's 1971 concept album 'Histoire de Melody Nelson'. I tried to write some French lyrics (using quotes found on Pinterest). Since on his album Melody is pronounced with a short 'e' I also pronounce it that way (on his album Melody is the first name of the girl). And I am sorry for my bad French!

lyrics

CHORUS
Melody
Ma Melody

VERSE 1
Vous devez devenir le changement que vous voulez voir
Tu peux compter sur moi

CHORUS
Melody
Ma Melody

VERSE 2
Une vie sans melody est une vie sans vie
L'amour n'as pas de prix

BRIDGE
Dansent, dansent les flocons blancs
Apres la pluie viendra le beau temps

VERSE 3
Ne retiens pas tes larmes
Une melody peut briser tous les chagrins

CHORUS
Melody
Où est ma Melody
Melody
Où est ma Melody

Je suis ici

TRANSLATION

CHORUS
Melody
My Melody

VERSE 1
You must become the change you want to see
You can count on me

CHORUS
Melody
My Melody

VERSE 2
A life without melody is a life without life
Love has no price

BRIDGE
Dance dance white snowflakes
After the rain comes the sun

VERSE 3
Don't hold your tears
One melody can shatter all grief

CHORUS
Melody
Where is my Melody
Melody
Where is my Melody

I am here
