Yesterday, when the sun went down,

I felt like to lay me in the ground.

It's funny how one night

can turn it around.

Show me what to do

with this thing I've found.

 

I'm not the kind of man

who likes to sit around,

do the comment t'allez vous.

I want to change my heart

but I don't know where to start-

just send in your wrecking crew.

 

How come you make it seem

I've woken from a dream

when I'm looking at a dream come true?

Funny old day. Funny old world.

I'm in love with a Breton girl.

I had to travel halfway round the world

to fall in love with a Breton girl.

 

I was sitting waiting

for the lights to change.

You were almost lost to view.

In the cradle of the evening

with the night flowing in,

I turn and I catch sight of you.

 

Blinded by the light,

I stumble over nothing.

I try to find the words to say.

First the earth is solid

and my feet are on the ground,

then the world is falling away.

 

How can you make it seem

I've woken from a dream

when I'm looking at a dream come true?

Funny old day. Funny old world.

I'm in love with a Breton girl.

Had to travel halfway round the world

to fall in love with a Breton girl.

 

Now you got me turned around,

inside-out and upside-down,

familiar but it feels brand new.

I see the whole world disappear

and the only thing I fear

is ever losing sight of you.

 

I guess I've always known it-

I was just afraid to own it.

Other side of deja vu

is a river of love flowing from above

through your eyes of cornflower blue.

 

How can you make it seem

I've woken from a dream

when I'm looking at a dream come true?

 

It's a funny old day. It's a funny old world.

I'm in love with a Breton girl.

I had to travel halfway round the world

to fall in love with a Breton girl...

to fall in love with a Breton girl...

to fall in love with a Breton girl.

 

Sha-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na

Sha-na-na-na-naha-na-nay

Take some sunshine from your smile,

I'm gonna put it in my pocket

and save it for a rainy day.

 

How can you make it seem

I've woken from a dream

when I'm looking at a dream come true?

 

It's a funny old day.

It's a funny old world.

I'm in love with a Breton girl.

I had to travel halfway round the world

to fall in love with a Breton girl...

to fall in love with a Breton girl...

to fall in love with a Breton girl.
