I always say, comme ci comme ca,*

And go my way, comme ci comme ca,

Since you are gone, nothing excites me.

Since you are gone, no one delights me.

And I go on, comme ci comme ca,

Midnight till dawn, comme ci comme ca,

But should we meet, that would excite me,

And should you smile, that would delight me,

I'd live again to love again,

But until then, comme ci comme ca.

 

It seems my friends have been complaining

They say that I've been acting rude.

But I have never liked explaining,

Which may explain my attitude.

<instrumental> comme ci comme ca,

<instrumental> comme ci comme ca,

Since you are gone, nothing excites me.

Since you are gone, no one delights me.

<instrumental> hmm, hmm,

<instrumental> tira, rirum.

But should we meet, that would excite me,

And should you smile, that would delight me,

I'd live again to love again,

But until then, comme ci comme ca.
