Mon ami m'a quittée
Je vous le dis
Ça devait arriver à moi aussi
Je le voyais rêver d'une autre fille depuis longtemps

Mon ami est ailleurs
Je ne sais où
Au près d'un autre cœur
Et loin de nous
À cueillir d'autres fleurs
Et d'autres rendez-vous

Moi je regarde les vagues
Dont la mer écrase les rochers
Et je voudrais que le calme
Vienne habiter ma solitude

Il m'a quittée
Je vous le dis
Oui c'est arrivé à moi aussi
À force de rêver d'une autre fille depuis longtemps

Mon ami m'a quittée
C'est trop facile
C'est la fin de l'été
Soleil fragile
Les bateaux sont rangés
Pour un meilleur avril

Alors moi je regarde les vagues
Dans mon cœur quelque chose a bougé
Il était tendre et sauvage
Et le voilà qui se raconte

Il m'a quittée
À la fin de l'été
Il m'a quittée

Mon ami m'a quittée
Je vous le dis
Oui c'est arrivé à moi aussi
J'ai fini de rêver du moins pour aujourd'hui, ooh, ooh, ooh
