About Le temps des fleurs

"Le temps des fleurs" ("The time of the flowers") is a song recorded by French singer Dalida for her twenty-first studio album of the same name. While the French lyrics were written by Eddy Marnay, the melody was taken from Russian romance song "Dorogoi dlinnoyu" ("Дорогой длинною"), composed by Boris Fomin in 1924. Dalida covered the song after Mary Hopkin popularised the original with her English version one month earlier. Le temps des fleurs is Dalida's first recording to debut atop of French song chart, while it peaked the newly established "Centre d'Information et de Documentation du Disque" sales chart two weeks after entry. The record was a sales success and earned Dalida her twenty-eighth gold disc, which made Dalida record it also in Italian as "Quelli erano giorni", and in German as "An jenem Tag". In France, the song remains as one of 1960s classics, and Dalida's signature songs.

Dans une taverne du vieux Londres
Où se retrouvaient des étrangers
Nos voix criblées de joie montaient de l'ombre
Et nous écoutions nos cœurs chanter

C'était le temps des fleurs
On ignorait la peur
Les lendemains avaient un goût de miel 
Ton bras prenait mon bras 
Ta voix suivait ma voix 
On était jeunes et l'on croyait au ciel 
La, la, la, la la
La, la, la, la la
La, la, la, la la
La, la, la, la la

Et puis sont venus les jours de brume
Avec des bruits étranges et des pleurs
Combien j'ai passé de nuits sans lune
A chercher la taverne dans mon cœur

Tout comme au temps des fleurs 
Où l'on vivait sans peur 
Où chaque jour avait un goût de miel 
Ton bras prenait mon bras 
Ta voix suivait ma voix 
On était jeunes et l'on croyait au ciel 
La, la, la, la la
La, la, la, la la
La, la, la, la la
La, la, la, la la

La, la, la, la la
La, la, la, la la
La, la, la, la la
La, la, la, la la

Et ce soir je suis devant la porte
De la taverne où tu ne viendras plus
Et la chanson que la nuit m'apporte
Mon cœur déjà ne la connaît plus

C'était le temps des fleurs
On ignorait la peur
Les lendemains avaient un goût de miel 
Ton bras prenait mon bras 
Ta voix suivait ma voix 
On était jeunes et l'on croyait au ciel 
La, la, la, la la
La, la, la, la la
La, la, la, la la
La, la, la, la la

La, la, la, la la
La, la, la, la la
La, la, la, la la
La, la, la, la la

La, la, la, la la
La, la, la, la la
La, la, la, la la
