Chorus:
"C'est si bon," Lovers say that in France,
When they thrill to romance, It means that it's so good.
"C'est si bon," So I say it to you,
Like the French people do, Because it's oh so good.
Every word, every sigh, every kiss dear,
Leads to only one thought, and it's this dear,
It's so good, Nothing else can replace,
Just your slightest embrace, And if you only would.
Be my own, for the rest of my days,
I would whisper this phrase: My darling "Cest si bon"!
