French: Ah, je ris de me voir
From Faust
By Charles Gounod

lyrics

Ah! je ris de me voir
si belle en ce miroir,
Ah! je ris de me voir
si belle en ce miroir,
Est-ce toi, Marguerite, est-ce toi?
Réponds-moi, réponds-moi,
Réponds, réponds, réponds vite!
Non! Non! ce n’est plus toi!
Non...non, ce n’est plus ton visage;
C’est la fille d’un roi;
Ce n’est plus toi,
Qu’on salut au passage!
Ah s’il était ici!
S’il me voyait ainsi!
Comme une demoiselle
Il me trouverait belle, Ah!
Comme une demoiselle,
Il me trouverait belle!
Achevons la métamorphose,
Il me tarde encor d’essayer
Le bracelet it le collier!
Dieu! c’est comme une main,
Qui sur mon bras se pose! ah! ah!
Ah! je ris
de me voir si belle dans ce miroir!



Ah, I laugh to see myself
so beautiful in this mirror,
Ah, I laugh to see myself
so beautiful in this mirror,
Is it you, Marguerite, it is you?
Answer me, answer me,
Respond, respond, respond quickly!
No No! it’s no longer you!
No...no, it’s no longer your face;
It’s the daughter of a king,
It’s no longer you, etc.
One must bow to her as she passes!
Ah if only he were here!
If he should see me thus
Like a lady
He would find me so beautiful, Ah!
Like a lady,
He would find me beautiful!
Let’s complete the metamorphosis,
I am late yet in trying on
The bracelet and the necklace!
God! it’s like a hand
Which is placed on my arm! Ah, ah!
Ah, I laugh
to see myself so beautiful in this mirror!
