Toi mon ami de toujours
Tu m'as souris et recueillis chez toi
Toi mon ami de toujours
Tu m'as gardé m'as élevé
Mais à vivre à tes côtés
Mon amour a grandi avec moi jour à jour
Comme l'arbre du jardin lentement

Toi mon ami de toujours
Oublie l'enfant que j'ai été pour toi
Toi mon ami mon amour
Ouvre les yeux regarde-moi
Rien ne peut me faire changer
Même s'il faut te crier
Que je t'aime que je t'aime que je t'aime
Mon ami mon amour de toujours
