Abstract

The following paper analyzes the contrast existing between well-known
English songs and their French models both in their formulation and
their meaning. Using as a point of departure the original French lyrics,
we see, thanks to the translation of their English version back into
French, how mood, form and content have been modified to give each
song a life and a character of its own.
