"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

Place In The Sun
(Dee Shipman / Mike Garson)

I've had enough of hanging round
With the kind of people who put me down
And the concrete heart of a too-big town
Gotta find a place in the sun

I don't think I can take much more
Every day's the same as the one before
When you wonder what you're living for
Gotta find a place in the sun

I have to leave behind
The kind of friends you never really know
Smiles on a stranger's face
But eyes that never let their feeling show

This town is tough and it's unreal
It's a mask with nothing to conceal
Even making love's just one more deal
Gotta find a place in the sun

Hustling nine to five
And you say it's a wonder you survive
Every day is a fight to stay alive
And just to 
Be you......

But how can you know who you really are
When you're scared to death?
How can you hope to sing your song.....?
You can't even catch your breath!

When you're hustling nine to five
And you say it's a wonder you survive
Every day is a fight to stay alive
And just to 
Be you.........

So it's time to lay it on the line
Gotta break the ties that didn't bind
Only hope for this poor soul of mine
Is it to take my chances and run
Gotta find me a place in the sun
