Sarah Vaughan

John's in love with Joan

Joan's in love with Jim

Jim's in love with someone

Who's not in love with him

What was meant to be, must be

C'est la vie, c'est la vie

Life's a funny thing

When it comes to love

You don't always conquer

The one you're dreaming of

As they say in old Paree

C'est la vie, c'est la vie

Those who fall in love agree

It's the unsolved mystery

If your big romance cannot be

You'll find someone new, cherie

There goes happy Joe (Jane)

What a lucky guy

He just found a sweetheart

But no one's gonna cry

Tho' he stole her love from me

C'est la vie, c'est la vie
