"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

Goodbye Howard Hughes
(Dee Shipman / Herbert Chappell)

Old man
Where have old dreams gone?
Only the gold lives on
That you left behind

Old man
Flying you lived and died
What did you have to hide?
For all that you gained
How much did you lose?
Goodbye Howard Hughes

You had a hundred ivory towers
So many faces no one knew
And your money they say
Turned night into day
But months at a ime
You kept wearing the same dirty shoes

Old man
Counting the world well lost
Did you ever count the cost?
The prce was too high
When you paid your dues
Goodbye Howard Hughes

And in the earlier years, they tell me
You helped support a movie star
In more ways than one.........!
It sure seemed like fun
From all we heard tell of your life
On the Movietone News!

Old man
Where have the old dreams gone?
Only the gold lives on
That you left behind

Old man
Flying you lived and died
What did you have to hide?
For all that you gained
How much did you lose?
Goodbye Howard Hughes
