Lyrics:

"C'est la vie"

from ALGIERS (1938)

music by Vincent Scotto and Mohammed Igorbouchen and lyrics by Ann Ronell

 Life is simple if you try
To enjoy before you die
Every bit of happiness along the way.

Take the joy that comes to you.
Celebrate what is new
With a song that keeps you dancing every day.

C'est la vie.
Fall in love and life is folly.
[That's right.] You don't need money
If you've got a little honey in your arms.

C'est la vie.
I'm in heaven and I know it.
Can I help it if I show it?
Life is sweet as sweet can be. [Ah me!]

Love is very necessary.
Fall in love and you'll be happy.
C'est la vie.

You don't know just what you miss
When you live without a kiss
For a kiss can bring you winter into spring.

Everybody will agree
If you fall in love like me,
You'll be happy.  You will laugh and you will sing.

C'est la vie.
That's the life we should be living:
Kisses morning, noon and evening.
That's the life that I've been living. [C'est l'amour!]

C'est la vie.
There is nothing like that feeling.
Tell me what is more appealing
Than the feeling you're in love? [Mais oui!]

Love is very necessary.
Fall in love and you'll be happy.
C'est la vie.

Love is very necessary.
Fall in love and you'll be happy.
C'est la vie.
