La Môme

Edith Piaf is one of France's finest gift's to music. Yet, her life was marked by the tragedy and anguish that permeated her songs. Piaf's sublime voice had the potential to bring tears to even the most stouthearted of men. The songbird of Paris is the focus of a new movie, called La Vie en Rose (Life in Pink).

Quand il me prend dans ses bras
Il me parle tout bas
Je vois la vie en rose
Il me dit des mots d'amour
Des mots de tous les jours
Et ça me fait quelque chose
