Où sont-elles passées, celles qui m’ont fait croire
À la belle histoire du fruit défendu?
Que de temps passé dans l’attente vaine
D’étreintes incertaines, que de temps perdu

Le cœur, débordant de tant de tendresse
Par mes maladresses gardait son tourment

Dans la rue, tendrement, elles prenaient ma main
Seul à seul, gravement, elles disaient demain
Quand j’y pense aujourd’hui, pourtant moi, je souris du temps
Du temps passé, à croire à cette histoire

Où sont-elles passées, celles qui m’ont fait croire
À la belle histoire du fruit défendu?
Mais ce temps passé qui semblait folie
Que de nostalgie il m’aura valu

Car les filles alors avaient le mystère
Des amours premières à jamais perdues

Où sont-elles passées, celles qui m’ont fait croire
À la belle histoire du fruit défendu?

Translation
Where have they gone, those who made me believe
The lovely story of the forbidden fruit?
So much time is spent in the vain expectation
Of unsteady embraces, so much time is lost

The heart, overflowing with so much tenderness
By my awkwardnesses kept its torment

On the street, tenderly, they took my hand
A private conversation, seriously, they said tomorrow
When I think of it today, however I smile of the time
Of the past time, to believe in this story

Where have they gone, those who made me believe
The lovely story of the forbidden fruit?
But that past time which seemed mad
So much nostalgia it will be worth to me

Because the girls then had the mystery
Of the first loves which are lost forever

Where have they gone, those who made me believe
The lovely story of the forbidden fruit?
