Intro: E Emaj7 Dbm Gbm B B7

Verse 1:
E                         Emaj7
Hold me close and hold me fast
                     Dbm
The magic spells you cast
                  Gbm  D
This is La Vie en ros-e


                        B7
When you kiss me heaven sighs
                      B
And though I close my eyes
                E   D
I see La Vie en ros-e

Verse 2: 
E                         Emaj7
When you press me to your heart
                Dbm
I'm in a world apart
                    Gbm
a world where roses bloom

Bridge:
Gbm                        E
And when you speak angels sing from above
Gbm                     B               B7
Everyday words seem to turn into love songs

Verse 3:
E                           Emaj7
Give your heart and soul to me
                     A
And life will always be
   Gbm  B       G
La Vie en rose

If you add the French verse at the start, it sounds really nice.

Quand (con) il (eel) me(meh) prend (prand) dans (dan) ses (say) bras (brah)
Il (eel) me (meh) parle (par-lay) tout (tou) bas (ba) Je (juh) vois (voo) la vie en rose

Same chords for the first English verse

caitlin

thats not how you pronounce it. It’s pronounced more like – cond el meh pron don se bra el muh parler two bar je vwas luh vee on roser

Lauren Harrell

Again this is incorrect. If you don’t speak French do not try to correct. When you put an er on the end of something it’s pronounced ay. And some things that the person got correct are wrong on your part. Like how the first person says ses=say which is correct and you said ses=se. Edith Piaf would be disappointed (original writer of this song)

Lauren Harrell

I’m in AP French (6 years of education) about to pursue my minor and this pronunciation is butchered and incorrect. Look at word reference and duolingo before you hit copy and paste on something you don’t understand. Please and thank you.

Eli

ive been learning french for 8 years, this is absolutely wrong.

I hate online school

What is it supposed to be?

IceBlueIggy

The one that Ali posed (the one closest to the top) is pretty accurate. It’s not a perfect pronunciation guide, but if you’re just looking to have fun with it then you can use that.

angelinizuchini

a great song to start 2020 :)

uououoio

Saaaame

Noah

Caro

Same bro

Eliffe

I am doing the same thing my friend

Brit

Same. It’s a mood

Also, guys what’s the melody of the bridge?

Wie

Wow there’s a lot of us

cley

if you listen to the song you can find it, just look up la vie en rose in english on youtube

Bee

The melody of the bridge is sort of like this:
A-A-G-A-A-G-A-A-G-D, A-A-G-A-A-G-A-A-G-C-B
If you don”t know how to sound out the notes, go onto one of those websites (like this: https://www.apronus.com/music/flashpiano.htm) which have the piano with the notes on them and you can play out the tune. Or you cold listen to the song online or on spotify and listen to the melody. Hope this helped!

Camila Dominguez

ily

s a n a

jesus this entire comment section is just correcting the french pronounciation, so i guess i just have to listen to the audio itself. :/

Chlo ❤

Lol good point. It doesn’t matter whether or not your taking AP french or if you’re actually french or if you don’t even know the language at all. Just listen to the lyrics and sing what you hear :)

Cody

That’s true but it is still good to know what the lyrics in french mean and if you know the lyrics and how to pronounce them it makes it easier to sing.

cuddles

there is a tab with the french lyrics! it’s la vie en rose but it’s by edith piaf

Mara

French teacher here… I always tell my students not to worry so much about pronunciation! That’s something that comes later in learning French anyway. As long as you get the gist of it and try your best, a native speaker will understand you. And since this is arguably the most popular French song out there, they’ll definitely know what’s up! Just have fun with it, mes amis :)

Summer

Well that’s not how you pronounce either. More like…

“kond eal meh prawnd dawn say brah”
Quand il me prende dans ses bras

“eal meh pawrl on tou baw”
Il me parle en tout bas

“juh vwa la vee on rowze-eh”
Je vois la vie en rose

sophie

the only way to accurately write down french pronunciaton is IPA

qã il mœ prã dã sE bra
il mœ parl ã tu ba
3œ vwa la vi ã rozœ

i know it’s not perfect ipa but it gives a more accurate pronunciation of the vowels

Kirstin

the average english speaker probably doesn’t know how to read that

cuddles

FOR THE LONGEST TIME I THOUGHT THIS SAID ENGLISH TEACHER WHAT THE HECK I’M BLIND

Cunt

Lol

Theresa

this does look super confusing but this is actually how i learned to pronounce the words and the french exchange students at my school say its pretty accurate. if you combine a simple ipa chart with listening to the original edith piaf audio its not too hard :)

Hwujwvus

Idk hi

RandomArts

Hellooo :p

Maria

Can anyone help me with the lyrics? i want to learn the french verison, but i dont know how to pronounce it.
anyone that could help me?
i would love the whole song… or else just the part Chloe Moriondo sings.. Thank you for reading! much love people <3

Marina Lima

Hi Maria!! Nice to meet you. I was just checking the tabs and I read your comment. I’m brazilian, but I speak french and I would be glad to help you, if you like =) If you’re still interested, send me an e-mail to > [email protected]

Keanna

Hey Marina! Would you mind helping me out too? I’d love to learn.

Guest

Hi there I’m a native French speaker, if you have question s I’d be more than happy to help, seeing the «  prononciation » comment just scrapping the song made me cry a little, it’s always better to refer yourself to an audio of the original song, explaining the French prononciation by giving exemple in english is not really accurate

daniela

Hi ! I would say

Cont eel meh parle too bas je vois la vie en rose
Eel meh dee Des mots d’amour….

This is only the first two sentences sorry 😅 I’m french and I don’t exactly know how you guys pronounce a bunch of things so what I wrote could be wrong…
does somebody could helP me with strum pattern ?

ck

for the strumming pattern i like using DD DU DU

rocio s

i use something like DD UU DU

Nat

I use D DU U DU

Bi Bitch

I use DD UDU for the majority of it.

cuddles

love your name :D

Wilderdyke

I love your name honey.

kraftyfox89

this version of the song is actually by Louis Armstrong. Edith Piaf’s has different lyrics and her’s are in French.

LLLLLL

Actually Edith Piaf wrote the English version of the lyrics too, Louis Armstrong did the most famous English cover.

urmomismybae

if ur into covers of this song, check out chloe moriondo’s!

NoName

Yo! Anyone know what’s the strumming pattern?

carah

i use a soft dduudu it sounds really pretty, just strum down softly with your thumb and up with your finger softly.

annabelle

this works but so does ddudu which pretty much works for everything lol

August

i do a slow d-ududud ududud
