[Mitzi and Kids]
La vie est belle,

La vie est gai,
Chere Mad'moiselle,
Est-ce que
Parce que
Vous m'aimez?

Born on the opposite sides of the sea,
We are as diff'rent as people can be.

It's true

And yet you want to marry me.

I do!

I've known a few short weeks and yet
Somehow you made my heart forget
All other men I have ever met of view, but you...

Some enchanted evening
When you find your true love,
When you feel her call you
Across a crowded room,
Then fly to her side,
And make her your own
For all through your life you
May dream all alone.

Once you have found her,
Never let her go.

Once you have found her,
Never let her go!
