I fell in love with this beautiful song when it was first posted by 240252. When pastelblues asked for an English translation, I applied my meagre linguistic abilities and created this video using the same soundtrack.
The drawings are colorized versions of 1920s clipart, most from La Vie Parisienne. Except the last, which is all mine.
DISCLAIMER I am only an amateur linguist, so if I've made any boners, tell me and I'll alter the video. At least I tried.
In an effort to let English speakers know what the original words meant, I've chosen to let some phrases sound clunky if "streamlining" them would have meant changing the meaning too much.
It would be fun to write an English version of the song. In my Googling I found four versions (the original Italian, plus German, Spanish and French) but no one seems to have done it in English.
