La Mer by Charles Trenet

La mer
Qu’on voit danser le long des golfes clairs
A des reflets d’argent
La mer
Des reflets changeants sous la pluie

La mer
Au ciel d’été confond
Ses blancs moutons
Avec les anges si purs
La mer bergère d’azur infinie

Près des étangs
Ces grands roseaux mouillés
Ces oiseaux blancs et ces maisons rouillées

La mer
Les a bercés
Le long des golfes clairs
Et d’une chanson d’amour
La mer
A bercé mon coeur pour la vie

Somewhere Beyond The Sea (English)

Somewhere beyond the sea,
Somewhere waiting for me,
My lover stands on golden sands
And watches the ships that go sailing. 

Somewhere beyond the sea,
She’s there waiting for me.
If I could fly like birds on high,
Then straight to her arms I’d go sailing. 

It’s far beyond a star,
It’s near beyond the moon.
I know beyond a doubt
My heart will lead me there soon. 

We’ll meet beyond the shore.
We’ll kiss just as before.
Happy we’ll be beyond the sea,
And never again I’ll go sailing.
