"Every song I have translated is well translated, the one who works on the very difficult songs with me is Dee Shipman. I know her telephone number by heart, and her fax. It goes back and forth - 'No! I don't like this word!' And she comes back and says 'Because you don't understand English!' So I have to convince her and she has to convince me, and the rapport is fantastic." 

- Charles Aznavour

"This is one of the lyrics I transposed into English from Charles's original French, and I remember thinking at the time........"Wow! How does a man know women so well? Well, this woman, anyway!" And there have been many times, and many lyrics, since then, when I have wondered the same thing..........
Sometimes, working with Charles, it's like he's reading my mind - or maybe I'm reading his! Whichever it is, he explains it as 

"........the rapport's fantastic!" It certainly is..........! .

  

  


A Woman In Love
(Dee Shipman / Charles Aznavour)

Any woman is pretty when courted with smiles
And her soul a bouquet of illusion and hope
A woman in love
A woman in love

And a woman's fulfilled when her body beguiles
And she still has the power to charm and provoke
A woman in love
A woman in love

She's alive to a world only lovers create
Where horizons are coloured the tenderest shade
Love's planted in her heart and she is not afraid
She follows where it leads to happiness and fate
A woman in love

Lying close to a lover who warms her at night
She submits like a child in her helpless delight
Young... beautiful and young
Eternally young
A woman in love
A woman in love

When a girl becomes a woman it shows in her eyes
With a luminous light and a sensual glow
A woman in love
A woman in love

And the flame must be kindled with subtle surprise
By a lover who's knowing and gentle and slow
A woman in love
A woman in love

She can rage like a river or sing like a stream
She will flood into bloom when love waters the seeds
She has to have a man who'll satisfy her needs
To pleasure her demands, and realise her dreams
A woman in love

With a spark of love - madness he traces his way
To the heart of her life, and he knows she will stay
Young... beautiful and young
Eternally young
And a woman in love
A woman in love
A woman in love
