elle est jolie

s'est par un soir

de gai printemps

mais un beau jour

on vient s'oppose

l'amour prend fin avec les fleurs

et on rest seul un beau jour et

le coeur se ride,

les yeux remplis de pleurs

lorsque tout est fini

quand se meurt votre beau rve

pourqoui pleurer les jours en pluie,

regretter les chances parties?

les belles et sont les filles

la savant vise s'achve

et l'on reste laver vers prix

quand tout est fini

may I offer you

this glass of Champagne?

votre sant

- May I have this?

- Of course.

sing your number once

and then sell the apples

That's the most important thing

Sell the apples!

10 % is yours, 90 % is mine.

damme los flores!

Over my dead body

damme los flores or go a casa

well, what's keeping you, baby?

what can I bid for my apple?

the fruit that made Adam so wise

on the historic night

when he took a bite

he discovered a new paradise?

and apple, they say,

keeps the doctor away

while his pretty young wife

has the time of her life

with the butcher, the baker

the candle-stick maker

oh what can I bid for my apple?

We meet once more, monsieur

I didn't anticipate this pleasure so soon.

can I also have an apple?

- but I have no change for that.

- I hardly expected you to have.

You are again very kind.


may I have the honour of your company

after the performance?

I'm sorry. I have disposed

for the rest of the evening.

- some other time perhaps?

An apple, Monsieur? Madame?

Don't waste your time down there.

There's no money in the pit!

isn't there?

Thanks for the flower, Mademoiselle.

can I offer you an apple, too?

Lend me 20 francs

That makes 60

Two weeks pay

is a lot of money for an apple.

You can have it for nothing

if you like.
