Enfant, si j'étais roi
My Child, if I were King


My child, if I were king, I’d give my empire,
My coach, my sceptre, my people on bended knee,
My golden crown, my deep blue sapphire,
My fleet which all the seas require,
For just one look from thee.

If I were God, the earth I’d give, the sea,
The angels, demons subject to my law,
Chaos, multiplying ever more,
Space, eternity, the heavens would stand in awe,
For just one kiss from thee.
