"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

Celebrate
(Music: Petula Clark | Lyric: Petula Clark / Dee Shipman)

Why does it feel so right
Suddenly everything feels as it should tonight
Why try to analyse it?
We only compromise it

You are where I belong
You are the music to my special song
You are the heat
You are the beat in my heart
So strong

Celebrate all the years we've shared
All the risks we ran
And the dangers dared
And lets Celebrate all the years before us
I'll take the solo
You sing the chorus
And celebrate, celebrate!

Life is a funny game
Learning to ride the roundabouts and swings of fame
You hit the top then slide on over the edge
But you keep right on trying
'Cos time's a test
There are some things that left me unimpressed
That's how it goes
Can't have a rose without thorns I guess

So celebrate
That somehow we made it
With no regrets
About how we played it
Let's celebrate
Life's a gift for giving
Forget the pain
And the joy of the living
And celebrate, celebrate

It all goes by so fast
Nothing seems to be the way it used to be
We can't live in the past
But don't throw away each lovely memory

The friends who are gone
Will live on and on
They're here in our hearts
And they're part of our songs
Part of our songs
Part of our songs

Let's celebrate
Every storm we weather
To reach the shore 
And be here together
To celebrate, celebrate!
Tell the world it can wait
You and I have a date
To celebrate!
To celebrate!

Celebrate
Celebrate
Celebrate
Celebrate!
