Lyrics

Je n'suis pas Marilyn, je n'aime pas la nuit
Et dans les magazines je ne lis pas ma vie
Je suis une provinciale, je n'ai pas lu Pascal
J'ai une vie normale, c'est presque original

Une petite Française née en Provence
Quand elle avait quinze ans vint à Paris
Epousa la chanson, ne changea pas son nom
Et la voilà – devant vous aujourd'hui

Une petite Française née en Provence
Loin de ses jeux d'enfants s'était enfuie
A-t-elle eu bien raison de quitter sa maison
Pour se trouver devant vous aujourd'hui?

Je n'suis pas une idole qu'on aime et qu'on détruit
Je vis mes années folles toujours loin de Paris
Et sans avoir de Rolls, il n'y a pas mieux, je crois
Quand je vois quelques gosses qui jouent autour de moi

Une petite Française née en Provence
Quand elle avait quinze ans vint à Paris
Epousa la chanson, ne changea pas son nom
Et la voilà – devant vous aujourd'hui

Une petite Française née en Provence
Loin de ses jeux d'enfants s'était enfuie
A-t-elle eu bien raison de quitter sa maison

Pour se trouver devant vous aujourd'hui?[1]

I'm not Marilyn, I don't like the night
And in the magazines I don't read my life
I'm a provincial, I didn't read Pascal
I have a normal life, it's almost original

A little Frenchwoman born in Provence
When she was fifteen, she came to Paris
Married the song, didn't change her name
And there she is, in front of you today

A little Frenchwoman born in Provence
Ran away far from her children's games
Was she right to leave her home
To be found in front of you today?

I'm not an idol who is loved and destroyed
I always live my turbulent years far from Paris
And without having a Rolls, I believe there's no better
When I see some kids playing around me

A little Frenchwoman born in Provence
When she was fifteen, she came to Paris
Married the song, didn't change her name
And there she is, in front of you today

A little Frenchwoman born in Provence
Ran away far from her children's games
Was she right to leave her home
To be found in front of you today?
