Words & Music by Charles Trenet
English Translation by Albert A. Beach
Recorded by Frank Sinatra, 1964

 Gdim       Dm       DM+7        Dm7    G7   
I wish you bluebirds    in the spring

             CM7   Am7            CM7     Am7
To give your heart     a song to sing,
            Dm7  Dm7/G               Dm6  Fdim             C    Em7-5
And then a kiss,      but more than this,      I wish you love.

Gdim     Dm   Dm+7       Dm7    G7
And in July        a lemonade
            CM7  Am7             CM7     Am7
To cool you in      some leafy glade;
             Dm7  Dn7/G               Dm6   G7           Gm7   Gdim
I wish you health,     and more than wealth   I wish you love.

            FM7          Fm7    Bb9
My breaking heart and I agree

            Em7  G/B               Gdim
That you and I         could never be,

           Dm7         (barre 5) D9             G7
So with my best  my very best      I set you free.

Gdim        Dm     Dm+7          Dm7    G7
I wish you shelter     from the storm,

        CM7 Am7               CM7     Am7
A cozy fire      to keep you warm,

             Dm7                 Dm7/G G7            C    Fm7  Bb9   CM7                             
But most of all, when snowflakes fall,   I wish you love.
