J'irai ou tu iras:
- I will go where you go

At home the forests are swinging in the wind
And the roofs scrape the sky
The waters of the streams are violent
And the snows are eternal
At home the wolves are at our door
And all the children understand them
We hear the screams of New York
And the boats on the Seine

OK for forests, your wolves, your sky-scapers
OK for your streams, your eternal snows
I live where your eyes shine
Where your blood flows
Where your arms are holding me tight

I willl go where you go
My country will be you
I will go where you go
Whatever the place, whatever the place

I want coconut trees, beaches
And palm trees under the wind
The fire of the sun on my face
And the blue of the oceans
I want camels, mirages and bewitching deserts
Caravans and trips just like on the brochures

OK for your coconuts, your shores
OK for you blue lagoons
I live where love is village
Where someone's waiting for me

I willl go where you go
My country will be you
I will go where you go
Whatever the place, whatever the place

Pack up your bags
And your dreams and your life
Your words, your "tabernacles"
And your tongue from here
