vos peines [D] sur mon coeur, et [E7] vos pieds sur une [A7] chaise.
Je vous con- [D] nais, Milord, vous n'm'avez [G] jamais vue,
je ne suis qu'une [D] fille du port, qu'une [A7] ombre de la rue.

Verset (Tremolo Lent)
Pour- [Dm] tant j'vous ai frôlé, quand [Dm] vous passiez hier,
Vous [Dm] n'étiez pas peu fier, Dame! [C] Le ciel vous comblait:
[Bb] Votre foulard de soie, flottant sur vos épaules,
[Bb] Vous aviez le beau rôle, on aurait dit le roi.

Mon [Bb] Dieu! Qu'elle était [A7] belle, j'en ai [Bb] froid dans le [Bb↓] coeur.

[F] That was just a dream, just a [Am] dream, just a [G] dream, dream.
