Passe passe the temps



Pendant que je dormais, pendant que je rêvais

Les aiguilles ont tourné, il est trop tard

Mon enfance est si loin, il est déjà demain

Passe passe le temps, il n’y en a plus pour très longtemps

While I was sleeping, while I was dreaming

Clock hands have turned, it is too late

My childhood has long gone, it is already tomorrow

Time passes passes, it won’t last much longer.

[Georges Moustaki 1969. Album: Le Métèque]
