Mon Ami, My Friend

from 20th Century Blues

  1. Mon Ami, My Friend
(Paul Green, Kurt Julian Weill) My Madeleine of Paris She'll laugh and dance and sing To cheer the weary soldier At his homecoming. A little room together, An hour of love to spend. "Comme ├ža, your arms around me," Oh, mon ami, my friend. But she, how she remembers That other love and joy. The first, the best, The dearest tired soldier boy. A narrow room alone now, Rain on the roof above And he will sleep forever, Oh, mon ami, my love. My Madeleine of Paris She does not sit and grieve, But sings away her sorrows To cheer the soldiers' leave. For life is short and funny And love must have an end. An hour may be forever Oh, mon ami, my friend. For life is short and funny And love must have an end. An hour may be forever Oh, mon ami, my friend.
