Tous les enfants ont dans les yeux
Des rêves fous, des rêves bleus
Petits géants à mèches blondes
Ils ont les mots d’un autre monde

Enfants terribles ou enfants sages
On dirait qu’ils sont en voyage
Tous les enfants sont des images

Tous les enfants sont capitaines
Ils s’appellent Mozart ou Verlaine
Pendant que dort la capitale
Ils s’amusent avec les étoiles

Petits trésors ou méchants diables
Ils nous sont tous indispensables
Tous les enfants sont formidables

Enfants, montrez-nous le chemin
De la vie en chantant
Donnez-nous la main

Tous les enfants ont dans le cœur
Toute la magie des explorateurs
Bébés champions ou chercheurs d’or
Ils voient la vie en technicolor

Sur tous les murs ils ont écrit
“À bas le blues” et “viva la vie”
Tous les enfants sont funambules
Ils disent “je t’aime” en faisant des bulles

Tous les enfants sont magiciens (Enfants)
Ils ont la terre au creux des mains
Avec leurs larmes de crocodile (Restons tous des enfants)
Ce sont les rois de l’an deux mille

Ils mangent glace et mettent feu (Amoureux et vivants)
Ils nous agacent et c’est tant mieux
Tous les enfants sont merveilleux (Eternellement)

Tous les enfants ont dans les yeux (Enfants)
Des rêves fous, des rêves bleus
Petits géants à mèches blondes (Montrez-nous le chemin)
Ils ont les mots d’un autre monde

Enfants terribles ou enfants sages (De la vie en chantant)
On dirait qu’ils sont en voyage
Tous les enfants sont des images (Donnez-nous la main)

Tous les enfants sont capitaines
Ils s’appellent Mozart ou Verlaine
Pendant que dort la capitale
Ils s’amusent avec les étoiles

Petits trésors ou méchants diables
Ils nous sont tous indispensables
Tous les enfants sont formidables

Enfants
(Children are loud, screaming and crying)
(We need to go to them when they cry)
(Kinder sind wir, Kinder seid ihr)
(Kinder sind alle um uns her)

Montrez-nous le chemin
(Children are small, learn to be tall)
(Look at them, you’ll see your life go by)
(Kinder sind hier, Kinder sind dort)
(Kinder braucht diese Welt so sehr)

De la vie en chantant
(Out of their place, dirt on their face)
(Children make everyone sing along)
(Kinder sind alt, Kinder sind jung)
(Kinder sind kindlich und genial)

Donnez-nous la main
(Sharing our dreams right to the end)
(Kinder, das warn wir alle mal)

Enfants
(Children are good, children are bad)
(Doing their best to drive you mad)
(Kinder sind laut, Kinder sind leis)
(Kinder kann oft nur ein Kind’s versteh’n)

Restons tous des enfants
(Children are neat, honest and sweet)
(Holding their dreams in people’s hand)
(Kinder sind klein, werden schnell groß)
(An ihnen sieht man die Zeit vergeh’n)

Amoureux et vivants
(Children are cute, children are wise)
(Look at the laughter in their eyes)
(Kinder sind wild, Kinder, die seh’n)
(Alles mit anderen Augen an)

Eternellement
(Children are stars)
(Kinder sind wir, Kinder seid ihr)

Children, Kinder, enfants

All children have in their eyes
Crazy dreams, blue dreams
Little giants with blond wicks
They have the words of another world

Bad children or good children
We’d say they’re on a holiday
All children are pictures

All children are captains
They are called Mozart or Verlaine
While the capital is sleeping
They have fun with the stars

Little treasures or mean devils
They are all essential to us
All children are terrific

Children, show us the path
Of life by singing
Give us a hand

All children have in their heart
All the magic of explorers
Baby champions or gold diggers
They see life in technicolor

On all walls they’ve written
“Down with blues” and “long live life”
All children are tightrope walkers
They say “I love you” while making bubbles

All children are magicians (Children)
They have the earth in the hollow of their hands
With their crocodile tears (Let’s all stay children)
They are the kings of the year two thousand

They eat ice and set fire (In love and alive)
They annoy us and it’s so much the better
All children are marvellous (For eternity)

All children have in their eyes (Children)
Crazy dreams, blue dreams
Little giants with blond wicks (Show us the path)
They have the words of another world

Bad children or good children (Of life by singing)
We’d say they’re on a holiday
All children are pictures (Give us a hand)

All children are captains
They are called Mozart or Verlaine
While the capital is sleeping
They have fun with the stars

Little treasures or mean devils
They are all essential to us
All children are terrific

Children
(Children are loud, screaming and crying)
(We need to go to them when they cry)

(We are children, they are children)
(Children are all around us)

Show us the path
(Children are small, learn to be tall)
(Look at them, you’ll see your life go by)

(Children are here, children are there)
(The world needs children so much)

Of life by singing
(Out of their place, dirt on their face)
(Children make everyone sing along)

(Children are old, children are young)
(Children are childlike and brilliant)

Give us a hand
(Sharing our dreams right to the end)
(Children, that’s what we all are)

Children
(Children are good, children are bad)
(Doing their best to drive you mad)

(Children are loud, children are quiet)
(Children can often only understand a child)

Let’s all stay children
(Children are neat, honest and sweet)
(Holding their dreams in people’s hand)

(Children are small, grow very fast)
(By them you see the time passing by)

In love and alive
(Children are cute, children are wise)
(Look at the laughter in their eyes)

(Children are wild, children see)
(Everything with different eyes)

For eternity
(Children are stars)
(We are children, they are children)

Children, children, children
