Cinéma

Toute petite, quelquefois il me prenait par la main
Et heureuse, à petits pas, je marchais par les chemins
Vers la ville aux mille lumières, au côté de mon papa
Vers le monde extraordinaire et magique du cinéma

Peter Pan, c'était le plus grand
Pour tous les petits enfants
Et Mickey était si gai quand il chantait dans les prés
Alice aux Pays des Merveilles, le dimanche après-midi
Était blonde, était belle
Et le film jamais fini

Cinéma, cinéma, tout le monde est fou de toi
Cinéma, cinéma, des enfants tu est le roi
Tes images et tes lumières
Font vivre leurs fantaisies
Comme un carrousel de rêves
Tourne et tourne à l'infini

Fred Astaire me rendait folle
Quand ses pieds claquaient au sol
Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton
Et le monde de Walt Disney
L'univers de mon enfance ne me quittera jamais

Cinéma, cinéma, tout le monde est fou de toi
Cinéma, cinéma, des enfants tu est le roi
Tes images et tes lumières
Font vivre leurs fantaisies
Comme un carrousel de rêves
Tourne et tourne à l'infini

Cinéma, cinéma, tout le monde est fou de toi
Cinéma, cinéma, des enfants tu est le roi
Tes images et tes lumières
Font vivre leurs fantaisies
Comme un carrousel de rêves
Tourne et tourne à l'infini

Cinema

Very small, sometimes he took me by the hand
And happy, with small steps, I walked along the paths
To the city of a thousand lights, alongside my father
To the extraordinary and magic world of cinema

Peter Pan, he was the tallest
For all the little children
And Mickey was so cheerful when he sang in the meadows
Alice in Wonderland on Sunday afternoon
Was blonde, was beautiful
And the film never ended

Cinema, cinema, the whole world is crazy about you
Cinema, cinema, you are the king of the children
Your pictures and your lights
Bring their fantasies to life
Like a carrousel of dreams
Turning and turning until infinity

Fred Astaire made me crazy
When his feet clicked on the ground
Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton
And the world of Walt Disney
The universe of my childhood will never leave me

Cinema, cinema, the whole world is crazy about you
Cinema, cinema, you are the king of the children
Your pictures and your lights
Bring their fantasies to life
Like a carrousel of dreams
Turning and turning until infinity

Cinema, cinema, the whole world is crazy about you
Cinema, cinema, you are the king of the children
Your pictures and your lights
Bring their fantasies to life
Like a carrousel of dreams
Turning and turning until infinity
