Two Guitars – Charles Aznavour

 

Two Guitars – Charles Aznavour
LES DEUX GUITARES (Charles Aznavour)

Two guitars by firelight
Strummed by gypsies’ fingers
On a restless ??? of night
Every memory lingers

They don’t know that deep in me
There’s a sadness burning
For my youth once wild and free
In her hands returning

E khê raz, is cho raz
Is chê mênaga mênaga raz
E khê raz, is cho raz
Is cho mênaga mênaga raz

Play now gypsies, play for me
Hide my inner voices
Tantalising endlessly
Offering no choices

A heavy heart, but my head is light
And my legs are hollow
I will drink again tonight
And all the nights that follow

E khê raz, is cho raz
Is chê mênaga mênaga raz
E khê raz, is cho raz
Is cho mênaga mênaga raz

Let me laugh and let me sing
Let me drown in my sorrow
Help me stop remembering
Give me back tomorrow

Come and let the good wine pour
Liquor makes me blameless
Give me more and more
Get me drunk and painless

E khê raz, is cho raz
Is chê mênaga mênaga raz
E khê raz, is cho raz
Is cho mênaga mênaga raz

Two guitars against my head
With their playing persistance
For all the futile days ahead
Full of vain existance

So, what is life, why live anyhow
Question your creator
We’re alive and living now
And dead a minute later

E khê raz, is cho raz
Is chê mênaga mênaga raz
E khê raz, is cho raz
Is cho mênaga mênaga raz

When you see my body drop
??? me ??? waking
Then your two guitars can ???
Gypsy music making

Let me hear your haunting theme
For my soul demands it
Until I am too drunk to dream
??? and I command it

E khê raz, is cho raz
Is chê mênaga mênaga raz
E khê raz, is cho raz
Is cho mênaga mênaga raz
